The 2017 MTM cohort was fortunate to have a Fulbright Scholar in the on-campus program, Russian student Olga Gachkova.  As a participant in the Fulbright Foreign Student Program, Olga was able to study at Colorado State University through funding from the U.S. Department of State.  During the 2016-2017 school year, the Fulbright Scholars were able to partake in many different activities including on-campus scholar dinners and conferences in cities across the nation to meet and foster community among Fulbright participants throughout the United States.  In the summer of 2017, Olga participated in the Edmund S. Muskie Internship Program as a part of the Fulbright Program, where she was involved with the Appalachian Mountain Club in New Hampshire, focusing on Tourism Development and International Affairs.  Contributing to the online, and specifically social media, presence of the Appalachian Mountain Club, Olga was able to travel the northern region of the Appalachian Trail where she gained a stronger appreciation for recreation opportunities in the northeast region of the United States.  Upon completion of her summer internship, Olga plans to return to Russia and continue her work in international relations and tourism development, hoping to improve the industry in her home country.
