A few words about the Fulbright (FLTA- foreign language teaching assistance) in my life 👩🎓🇺🇸 Generally, it is a contest, sponsored by US Embassy, that took 4 stages which were stretched over 14 months (living 8000 km away from Moscow, the capital city, causes some delays, timezone issues). Over this time, I composed a bunch of essays, proving that I am a worthwhile candidate to be an ambassador, flew to Moscow twice enjoying an 8-hour flight (one way) to take TOEFL and be interviewed by the smartest professors and reps of the program. 🏆After winning, I was placed to teach my native language in the BEST university of the Midwest - the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for 10 months, took Women and Gender Studies, classic music, rock'n'roll, Creative writing, etc ; finished an int'l teaching training school, travelled around all the USA , volunteered in Ohio, Syracuse, NY , Lincoln (Nebraska), took part in protesting demonstrations, joined a 3-day rock music festival (OLF), instructed yoga, and did other deepest explorations...
To me, Fulbright has become a precious gift from this Universe and, of course, the US Embassy...
❇️What was I driven by? My love to English, desire to teach, explore and to share, my wanderlust, and urge to leave my comfort zone ….. all of that! But honestly, I have always dreamt to study at American University FOR FREE as I believed and still believe the knowledge, persistence and passion to what you love can pave the way towards your future without much money being invested.
☯️Keep exploring. Keep loving. Keep risking.
