Crockett Sewell (Queens University to Vesallius University 2015) interned at the Fulbright Commission to Belgium and Luxembourg while he studied in Brussels. The opportunity changed his life. After he graduated from Queens University in Charlotte, NC he moved to Washington DC, for an internship in international education. He then got his masters at the University of Cardiff in International Public Relations and Global Communications Management and got a job as an international admissions counselor at Purdue University.
He remembers considering internships in Brussels, “That could be cool, I think I’ll apply for it.” He laughs as he says, “That absolutely changed my career trajectory 100%. As an intern I got to be an EducationUSA Advisor. I was working with Fulbright grantees in Belgium. I think what I enjoyed most was going to Belgian high schools about coming to the US. I don’t know the exact moment it happened, but I just realized that it was the type of work I wanted to be doing.” His time on an ISEP program helped him do that.
