Amanda Abrom speaking at the UN Conference on Trade and Development as a Youth Delegate at the UN Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland 

According to the Fulbright website, "the Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and has provided more than 380,000 participants—chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential — with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns." In the last two years, several of the DLLC's current students and alumni have received Fulbright scholarships to teach English abroad. We are happy to report that we have three students who are currently on programs (or have recently returned): Amanda Abrom, Briyana Chisholm, and Jackie King. Four more of our recent alumni will be participating in a Fulbright program in the next year: Mackenzie Campbell, Natalie Medlock, Megan Pacitti, and Christian Pirhalla. Mackenzie will teach English in the small country of Andorra in the Pyrenees, while Natalie, Megan, and Christian will teach English in Brazil. As they wait to start their postings, these students have a lot they can learn from our recent Fulbright awardees who have also travelled to similar destinations to teach English. Amanda has recently returned from her Fulbright experience in Madrid, Spain. Briyanna also had the opportunity to teach English in Spain in the town of Lugo. Jackie is currently finishing her year in Caxias do Sul, Brazil. Below you will find the stories of our students who are soon to embark upon their Fulbright experiences followed by the reports of students who are finishing their time abroad.
