Takuntor Fred, 2010, Cameroon

 My plans for my international life after Fletcher: I have always envisaged a lifelong career in international development. At Fletcher I saw a vast array of opportunities to make this happen. The specialized courses I took at Fletcher combined with the vast network of Fletcher alumni already in the field provided a unique window of opportunity for me to realize my career aspirations. Fletcher alums are all over the international fabric, working in various aspects of international development. I hope to duplicate this achievement because the Fletcher experience does not end in the classroom but follows you into the real world where it creates opportunities for you to actually make a difference. The name of Fletcher is a special brand out there and I hope to make the best of it.
