Eli Fisher is a Shansi Fellow from Oberlin College. He came to UGM during the summer of 2016, and will be in Yogyakarta for two years. As part of his fellowship he will be working at CRCS and FIB, primarily teaching English conversation classes and academic writing. While at Oberlin College Eli majored in Religious Studies, and because of this he was drawn to the Shansi position at UGM, as he was very excited about the opportunity to work at CRCS. During his time at Oberlin he was also a member of the Oberlin College lacrosse team, worked for the college’s radio station, and organized events around campus. Eli is looking forward to getting to know Yogyakarta over his two years, and is very excited about beginning work at UGM.
