Get to Know a Grantee – Sinia Amanonce

Interview By: Maureen Heydt

This interview has been condensed and edited for clarity.

Sinia Amanonce is an energetic 23-year-old American living in the historic town of Kutná Hora as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant for the 2016-2017 school year. She was inspired to apply to the program in the Czech Republic after spending a summer working at a restaurant in her home state of New Jersey with Czech university students who were participating in the United States’ international student work exchange J-1 visa program. Sinia connected immediately with the Czech students, and decided to apply for a Fulbright grant from that experience.

Get to Know a Grantee – Teal Vickery

Interview By: Maureen Heydt

This interview has been condensed and edited for clarity.

Nestled at the foot of the Šumava mountains lays the picturesque town of Vimperk, where Teal Vickrey is serving as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant this year. As a native Coloradoan, she is used to living in mountainous areas, but still finds herself awed by the nature and beauty of Šumava, as well as impressed at how active the community is in hiking, cycling and skiing. Vickrey herself is passionate about education, communication and writing, and at only two months into her grant year, is already starting to feel at home in her South Bohemian town of 8,000 people.
