Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) to Argentina, 2021-22

BS Communication '19

Jorge is a recent graduate who majored in communication with a minor in writing. Throughout his professional career, he’s worked in different realms of communication — nonprofits, literary publications, and public broadcasting companies — to broaden his understanding of language. He also has a great fascination for literature, specifically for short fiction stories. As an undergraduate, Jorge participated in the Rittenhouse Writers’ Group and through this writing workshop, sharpened his writing skills and developed confidence as a storyteller. He hopes to bring this curiosity for language to his Argentinian students if awarded the Fulbright grant. Simultaneously, he looks forward to connecting deeply to the Argentinian identity, which was created by the amalgamation of various ethnicities and nationalities. He wishes to turn his love for literature, language, and culture into an academic career, where he will be able to encourage students to participate in global exchanges.
