Where are they now? Marielena Faria, ESIA BA ’13

On a recent day last month, Marielena Faria stopped by the Elliott School to update us on her career and tell us about her latest project, Hearts 4 Harmony or H4H. The project aims to bring instruments donated by children in the United States to children in an underdeveloped corner of northern India. Many schools there are really just elaborate tin sheds. “India has so much poverty, yet so much culture,” Marielena says. “Music is often a uniting thread.”

Elliott Students Tell Their Stories

December 2017
As Elliott counted down to this year’s global day of thanks on November 28, our students shared their passion for making a difference in the world – and how philanthropy helps them realize their dreams. In the words of one student, “my fellowship is helping me gain the knowledge and skills I need.” Check out all their stories here and read about how our amazing students plan to use their Elliott degrees to empower communities, promote peace, and protect the environment across the map. By sharing their stories, these and other students helped make GW’s #Giving Tuesday a great success!
