Junior Lake Best, a Brock Scholar and communication major at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, has been accepted into the Fulbright Canada Mitacs Globalink program—an international education experience under the Fulbright umbrella for U.S. students interested in traveling to Canada to undertake advanced research projects in their areas of interest.
 
Mr. Best, whose interests include photography, film and TV, has been matched with a project being conducted by University of Winnipeg Professor Pauline Greenhill titled “Transforming Wonder: Justice in Old and New Fairy-Tale Media.”
 
“This opportunity was made for Lake,” said Leslie Pusey, director of the UTC Office of National Scholarships.
“As a communication major, Lake really thinks about other people, about storytelling and how to tell other people’s stories.”
 
The internship will begin in May and serve as Mr. Best’s first excursion to Canada and initial study abroad experience.
 
“This is something I really wanted to do. It’s very research-based and we’re going to learn about concepts,” said Mr. Best, a 2020 graduate of Pope John Paul II High School in Hendersonville, Tn. “Fairy-tale media is one of the first things that you encounter in terms of media. It’s fairy tales, like children’s stories. So there’s this interesting parallel that I’ve noticed rising in media where we’re looking at fairy tales. One of the first things you see are those lessons, those stories, those happily ever afters that you aspire to.”
