An Unforgettable Night in DC

Bono, of course. Behind him to the left in the white mask is Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Last night I had the pleasure of representing Drexel University’s Westphal College of Media Arts & Design and Drexel’s Office of Global Engagement at the star-studded 2021 Fulbright Prize for International Understanding ceremony in our nation’s capital. This year, the award went to Bono in case you haven’t already figured that out.

My red carpet moment.

You can watch the entire inspiring ceremony below.

Myself with Prof. Johnson and IIE Co-President A. Sarah Ilchman. The IIE is the Institute of International Education, a global nonprofit that administers the Fulbright program for the US State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

Bono’s jaw-dropping speech starts around 59:20 (the link is cued up for you). He is introduced by the Director General of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the first woman and first African to hold the position, Dr. Ngozi Okon-Jo-Iweala.
