That’s UAB alum and Fulbright Scholar Brenna Bentley on the right, standing next to the PRESIDENT of Estonia! How cool is that? President Kaljulaid is the first female and the youngest President since Estonia declared independence, and, like Brenna, her background is in biology. #Fulbrightadventures
"The more time you get to spend interacting with people, the more opportunities you have to see the similarities you have and appreciate the differences. Fulbright opens up the door and facilitates the relationships and ability for you to learn these things." - Charles Coleman, Fulbright English Teaching Assistant to Israel
Wise words from this UAB alum! We're proud of you Charles!
“A chance is a wonderful thing. I've been given this chance so that I can go out there and do something special, so that somebody else coming behind me will hav...e that same type of opportunity.”
Charles Coleman is the first #Fulbright recipient from his hometown of Fairfield, Alabama. As a 2017- 2018 Fulbright English Teaching Assistant to Israel, he is breaking down barriers to cultural understanding and encouraging others to apply for the Fulbright Program.
At the 1:09 mark, you'll hear a familiar voice and then see the smiling face of our very own Charles Coleman! He's featured in this new video on cultural exchange through the Fulbright Program. #Fulbright #IEW2017
