Borderland Journey

Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap
May 18 2011


Well gang, I have been granted a Fulbright and a TFA one-year deferral!

I will be going to Macedonia for a year to study gender and politics! I am the first person from my school to receive this honor.

The way the one-year deferrals work at TFA is that I will be put back in the selection process after the final interview to be re=placed in a region. I will also have to re-select all of my regions and preference them again. However, this time I will actually have to preference regions. The Fulbright is supposed to go through June, and institute is to start in June. So I will have to preference the later start dates for the Institute, and those regions. {hope they are still some place warm! :)}

So- feel free to check out my blog about the Fulbright at
