Self-Discovery in Central Asia

After five weeks in Kyrgyzstan, Gurkamal Dadra ’21 returned to Hofstra with the confidence that he is more resilient, determined, and resourceful than he ever knew.

Thanks to the Congressionally-funded Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, Dadra studied in the Central Asian country earlier this summer, where he took classes in forensic anthropology and researched the resurgence of Islam in the region. While there, Dadra navigated a language and culture he was unfamiliar with and embarked on a mountain journey that removed him from all modern conveniences.
