Hey, dear all! :))
My name is Valeriya Tsogoeva. I am from a small town Ardon which is in the North Ossetia, the Caucasus. I was born there, took my higher education and never left Russia before. It was the Fulbright Foundation who gave me the first chance to see the US, to study at the leading university of the Dallas-Fort Worth region and what is more important to meet new people and good friends here.
In fact during my first days in Texas I felt like Alice in the Wonderland; I walked along the streets and looked at everything: trees, birds, people, cars, houses. All these seemed so different from what I was used to! Now I think that this is just the beginning of a long and interesting path.
So, I am working over my degree in linguistics and I will also take a certificate in teaching ESL. After the Program and returning home I would like to continue my education further.
Thanks a lot to the Fulbright foundation and people working there. They all are very cooperative, kind and attentive.
Good luck to the new participants!
