RWIT Tutor Wins Fulbright

As reported in Dartmouth Now, RWIT tutor Emily Estelle has won a prestigious Fulbright to teach English in Morocco:

An anthropology major modified with Arabic—which she “decided to study as a first-year student to fulfill my language requirement and fell in love with”—Estelle has participated in foreign study programs in Tangier and Fez, Morocco, and completed an internship at the University of Kuwait. “I hadn’t been out of the country before, and I never expected to get so close to a place that I barely knew anything about before I came to Dartmouth,” she says. She manages and competes with the varsity equestrian team, works as a tutor through the Student Center for Research, Writing, and Information Technology (RWIT), and is a student assistant at Rauner Special Collections Library. Of the Fulbright opportunity, she says she hopes to further cultural understanding between Americans and Moroccans. “I’m so grateful to have the opportunity.”
