BGSU Alumna, Michelle Hendry, Spends 2017 Working Around The Globe
Story by: Bonnie Blankinship
2009 grad, Michelle Henry satisfied her desire to get to know different places by staying a month in each of 12 cities around the world — all while maintaining her job as art director with the Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California. She was able to do all this as part of the 2017 Remote Year program , which facilitates a yearlong adventure in which participants live and work abroad, telecommuting to their jobs back home. The organization arranges travel, transportation, an apartment and a co-working space in each city. Participants are part of a cohort of 50-75 people.
Remote Year was Henry's second experience with living abroad, the first being the semester she spent in Florence, Italy, with the Studio Arts Center International (SACI) while a BGSU undergraduate studying graphic design with associate professor Jenn Stucker in the School of Art.
Henry stated, "It's nice to have diversity and being among people you might not have crossed paths with in college or in your career. I made lifelong friends."
