Current employment and/or volunteer work:
I am a Fulbright Grantee to Malaysia.  Presently, I help administer an English teaching program.  I am based in Kuala Lumpur, the capital, and supervise a cohort of 75 grantees who teach English throughout the country.  My current grant expires in November 2013; I will remain I Kuala Lumpur on a contract basis until at least November 2014.

Suggestions/recommendations for current UNC students regarding career preparation, job searches, or career success:
Start early, apply for everything, and do what you want to do.

What do you know now that you wish you would have known as a UNC student?
Network more.  It is a real drag, but it really pays off in the end.

I would be willing to be a resource to students by…
Providing information/advice about my current career area, my geographic area, internship or summer employment opportunity with my organization, and regarding pursuit of graduate or professional degrees.  Also, sharing experiences regarding disclosure or nondisclosure of LGBTQ identities on applications, to employers, or to colleagues.
