Check out the fourth edition of narrative reflection from our 2015-16 English Teaching Assistants (ETAs)!!!!

Amy Bohn was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 2013 with a double major in Political Economy and Asian Studies and a minor in Japanese. Prior to Fulbright, Amy was an AmeriCorps after-school instructor at an elementary school in Oakland, CA. Amy is a 2015-2016 AMCHAM-Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Ubon Ratchathani, a city in the northeast of Thailand. In her free time, Amy enjoys exploring the cafes in her city and trying all the delicious Thai snacks. After Fulbright, Amy will move to Japan to teach English and explore the Japanese side of her identity. She hopes to work as a Foreign Service Officer one day. In her narrative reflection, she explains the main implications of being an “invisible American” and how grateful she is to be in a unique position to open people’s minds to the different ways that race, ethnicity, and nationality intersect.
