Prue Salasky

ODU's Prue Salasky is spending a year in Bulgaria after receiving a Fulbright U.S. student program English teaching assistant grant. She has started a blog to chronicle her experiences.

"Are you nervous? Do you wish you weren't going? These questions surfaced from friends and family soon before departure. "Not really" and "No" have been my responses, because everything about this adventure (which would seem bizarre if someone else told me they were embarking on it) seems so right for me at this time."
