"Recently I was awarded a scholarship from the International Foreign Language Honor Society, Phi Sigma Iota. I am very grateful for the society's contribution to my studies and I will be using the scholarship funds to pay for my upcoming study abroad through East Carolina University in Strasbourg, France. This scholarship would not have been possible without the support and help of my professors in the French section of the Foreign Language Department at ECU. I love French language and culture and am aspiring to be a French teacher. This upcoming Fall semester I will be interning as a student teacher in Rocky Mount before graduating with my BS in French Education in December.
