Holly is a high school social studies teacher from Pennsylvania, USA and just two years ago Holly spent a year on sabbatical at the University of Birmingham to pursue my MSc in Poverty, Inequality and Development. Holly's master's thesis focused on the stigmatisation of menstruation in urban Nepal, which opened up new avenues and curiosities on women's agency and the push for change as my PhD focus. Holly has started the PhD in International Development this past February and am studying as a long-distance learner while teaching full-time.
Holly is a two-time Fulbright-Hays scholar (southern Africa (2008) and Bulgaria/Greece (2017)), international volunteer and have had experience teaching English as an international teacher in Nepal, Lesotho, S. Africa, China and Bulgaria. These opportunities were available through World Teach, U.S. Federal Fulbright-Hays programs, and IPIE (International Partnerships in Education).
