And some more good news to share: Gwendolyn Moiles ’15 was awarded a Congress-Bundestag scholarship for Young professionals for the academic year 2017/2018! The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX) will allow Gwendolyn to study and intern for one year in Germany. The fellowship is funded by the German Bundestag and U.S. Department of State and annually provides 75 American and 75 German young professionals, between the ages of 18-24, the opportunity to spend one year in each other’s countries.
Gwendolyn Moiles graduated from Goucher in 2015 with a BA in Environmental Studies and a minor in German. While being at Goucher, she continuously studied German – Gwen started with GER 110 at Goucher – went on the Berlin ICA in 2012, and she also lived and studied for a semester in Tübingen, Germany.
Since graduation, Gwen ran a farm stand at an apple orchard, taught creative writing to aspiring young authors, was the assistant art director for a feature horror movie about sea monsters, illustrated a series of 100 innovative women in 3-D design for a woodworking studio for women and gender-nonconforming furniture makers in Baltimore, and cooked and gardened at a marine summer camp on a remote island in the Penobscot Bay in Maine. She currently works as a Communications AmeriCorps VISTA at Urban Green Lab, an environmental education nonprofit in Nashville, Tennessee.
