Caleb Huffman said that his transition to the University of Washington from a small town of Onalaska was daunting because of the number of undergraduates is 30 times larger than his hometown. In UW, Huffman explored his interest in building bridges between communities. After his first year at UW, Huffman traveled outside the U.S. for the first time to study global cities and human migrations and volunteer at a refugee center in Rome with the help of a grant from the U.S. Department of State. In his sophomore year, Huffman was accepted into the Husky Presidential Ambassadors Leadership Institute, which matches current UW students with incoming first-year students from China to develop cross-cultural communication and leadership skills. He also found U.S.-China relations interesting and ultimately, he wants to become a lawyer to help strengthen the relationship between U.S. and China and contribute to a more peaceful world.
