Episode 5: Arlenie Oglesby Part 2
Arlenie Oglesby, FSS
In the second part of Arlenie’s story she shares if she ended up traveling to Singapore or not. Her decision makes you think, as you listen to her narrative, if it was not meant to be. She shares a story of how a former professor invited her to teach economics for 160 students. In 2007 she ended up meeting Danda, a US Marine, who would become her husband. She talks of her travels to Boston to study at the Harvard Extension School and how in one magical moment in 2019, Danda took her to visit the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and proposed. Lucky for them, there happened to be a stranger who watched them, took pictures, and recorded a small video. Arlenie is a Faculty Assistant at HLS and also pursuing her PhD at Georgetown.
