Fulbright FLTA

March 15, 2011 must have been the happiest day of my life.  That was Tuesday, when I received a call from the Philippine-American Educational Foundation telling me of my selection as a Fulbright FLTA at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.  Being chosen to Fulbright means a lot to me.  It's a BIG thing for all people because to be in, one has to pass through the needle's eye.  It is highly competitive, but the nights and months of preparation, the time I dedicated to writing my essays, and the patience of waiting paid off!

I thank GOD for this grace, my family and friends for the support, and the university where I am currently working for allowing me to file a leave of absence for 10 months while I am on my FLTA.  Thank you : )
