“Going abroad to volunteer shouldn’t be about centering ourselves as Americans…it’s about empowering those we have the privilege of working with.”

– Lilly Wilcox

Lilly Wilcox (English/Communication Studies combined major ’22) was featured in News@Northeastern this week for receiving a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Grant. As part of the Fulbright program, Wilcox will be traveling to Slovakia in September to teach English to high school students, hoping to “help students develop their language skills without eschewing the national language or pushing the idea that English is the most important language we speak.” Wilcox credited her interest in language teaching in part to ENGL 3381 The Practice and Theory and Teaching Writing, a class she took in Fall 2020 taught by Professor Neal Lerner that allowed her to participate in a writing tutoring program for teenagers in Boston Public Schools.
