Ginger is a recent class of 2020 alumna. When she discovered Fulbright’s ETA programs, it was a perfect match to bring together her passion for education and Southeast Asia. Ginger spent her first summer in college teaching English in Chiang Rai, Thailand through the TAFP program sponsored by the Royal Thai Consulate of LA and Thai Tourism Authority. She has held additional internships with the US-Asia Institute, United States Congress, and a plethora of non-profits both domestically and internationally. Ginger hopes to use her time in Malaysia to learn about the culture first hand and intends on pursuing a Masters in Southeast Asian Studies following the completion of the grant.
