Rediscovering My Latin-American Professional Identity: A Reflection on a Fulbright Experience
Gonzalez, Virginia
Journal of International Students, v2 n2 p131-132 Fall 2012
I emigrated from Peru to the United States in the mid-1980s. More than 20 years later, a short trip to Latin America helped me come full circle personally and professionally and close the gaps that I had felt developing over the past two decades. This opportunity was provided by a Fulbright Senior Specialist Program award at the University of Costa Rica in San Jose at the School of Modern Languages during 2008. The Fulbright experience was a renewal for me professionally, as it opened a window of opportunities to see the cultural and language commonalties and differences between my academic experience in the US and my Latin American ancestry.
