savefulbrightThanks to Fulbright, I lived and learned the American culture IN Darlington WI. It has been the greatest opportunity in my life. I could SEE that the United States is not just what the news broadcast almost everyday… bad news. It is full of friendly people who fight for their rights and keep moving their country.

Now, as an English teacher, I have the opportunity to share my experiences with my Mexican students. We can talk about stereotypes that are not true, misunderstandings and misconceptions that foreigners usually have about Americans.

I wish I could tell more… but I would like to finish with this words… a big THANK YOU FULBRIGHT, isn´t enough to thank all that I have learned about the USA and its people.
