When I applied to be a Fulbright Teaching Fellow, I wanted to do something totally different. I grew up in Hawaii and spent two years teaching there. My friends and family wondered why I wanted to move to the other side of the world. It seemed so far to them. I didn't really know what to expect when I came to Greece but what I found was a community of talented and hardworking individuals, all of whom are working to broaden their world experience. I found a vibrant culture that was so much more than the ancient history I had learned about in school. I discovered the generosity and hospitality of the Greek people. I found that I had so much more to learn. What makes Fulbright Greece so wonderful to be a part of is that it puts you in a position to do just that -- to learn. This experience has helped me grow both professionally and personally, and I couldn't be happier about my decision to move to the "other side" of the world.
