Taking a particular interest in the potential of education and the sciences, Kristina graduated from Utah State University as a licensed Elementary Teacher. During her student teaching experience, Kristina fell in love with teaching as she built rapport with the students and faculty at Edith Bowen Laboratory School. She also enjoyed participating in extracurricular activities as Feminist Club President, Women’s Rugby Club Co-Captain, and a Big Band Swing Dance Performance Team member. Kristina has spent the last year in Taiwan teaching English as a second language to elementary students, learning the value of cultural exchange and language acquisition. She looks forward to learning more from her Fulbright experience in Greece.
