DS Student Gets Fulbright for Sri Lanka Peace Work

August 17, 2010

Development studies concentrator Masumi Hayashi-Smith '10 will rejoin youth peace programs in Sri Lanka next year on a Fulbright scholarship. In Brown Alumni Magazine’s July/August issue, she described her previous work in this post-conflict nation and the development studies thesis she wrote about her experiences in Buddhist camps for teens from different sides of its civil war. “Because of these camps,” she said, “these kids all realized they have this common humanity and the capacity to love one another.”
