I was searching for an avenue to grow as a teacher and know more about myself. I know I could only achieve those if I would get out of my comfort zone and try a chance of a lifetime.

My Fulbright experience strengthened my passion for teaching, made me appreciate the goodness in strangers and taught me to be more tolerant in embracing diversity and change. I have seen myself in a different perspective and appreciate life better.

A Fulbright experience is a journey of self-discovery. It is not just like winning a free trip, but it is finding one's worth and becoming a better person after the program to help others more.
