“I am excited for this opportunity to teach English and U.S. history and culture through the lens of anti-racism and anti-U.S. imperialism. I hope to share with my soon-to-be students in Taiwan the experiences of people of color and educate them about the true story of the U.S. by highlighting the struggles and contributions made by BlPOC communities. Additionally, I am looking forward to renegotiating my positionality while abroad as a first-generation, soon-to-be graduate and an Asian-American woman.

“After spending my undergraduate career studying communication in its various forms, I have been granted the opportunity to continue my time abroad as an English teaching assistant in Brazil. As a member of the UMass Amherst’s International Scholars Program, I studied in Paris and Sao Paulo, Brazil, and completed supplementary coursework that exposed me to my unique positionality as an American student.

"Through the Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship program, I will assist in English language classes and serve as a cultural ambassador in Taiwanese elementary schools. I hope to set up a pen-pal project between my students and students in the U.S. to aid in first-hand cultural exchange between the two countries. While in Taiwan, I plan to study Mandarin and am looking forward to exploring all that the country has to offer in terms of culture, geography, and art.
