Melton Fellow Alana Ingram loves traveling and learning from and about other cultures. “I believe that you can not blindly hate people once you get to know their culture.” For her, studying abroad is the perfect way to be exposed to other cultures and to become more tolerant.

Alana went to all the departments of her university to learn about all different exchange programs. She put together this information and created a booth at Dillard University. To make it more attractive for students to come to her booth she decorated it with souvenirs from her travels with the Melton Foundation. Over 30 students got interested and signed up to receive more information. More importantly she used the booth to get into conversation with the students and to learn about their motivation and interest to go abroad.
