Nathaniel O'Connor, UAF graduate

Class of 2012

“I wanted to thank Dr. Matusevich for pushing me in my French classes and encouraging me to look into exchange programs. That encouragement contributed to where I am in my life now. I attended a summer exchange program in the summer of 2011 and that further led me in the direction of rural peoples, culture and language and how that relates to barriers within educational and political systems. These interests mixed with my previous work with youth allowed me the opportunity to work at the Humanities Forum.

Our group is called Take Wing Alaska and is run by the Alaska Humanities Forum.”
