Highlighting our Grads: Senior selected for scholarship in Bulgaria
UT senior Avery Dobbs was chosen as a recipient for the Fulbright International Scholarship, where she will teach English as a second language to high school students in Bulgaria for an academic year. When asked what made Dobbs want to apply for this scholarship, Dobbs said that working with "multi-cultural communities" is something she has always been interested in. Dobbs has already gained experience teaching English as a second language through Bridge Refugee Services, and after getting involved with Amnesty International when she first arrived to UT, Dobbs has chosen to take a year off between undergraduate and law school to expand her English teaching experiences.
