I know that many of my students dream about working in another country and travelling the world. Bridget Dougherty is a role model for all of them.
Bridget was my student in "Spanish in the Community" in 2005, and she did her community service learning work at the Refugee Center (ECIRMAC). I also remember doing a classroom visit to a TA-taught "Business Spanish" course and seeing Bridget very engaged in that class, too.
Bridget recently e-mailed me to ask for some information for her applications to an MBA program, and I was delighted to see that she was working for a not-for-profit in Hanoi, Vietnam. Here is the information she shared with me:
"The non-profit is Prosperity Initiative. Check out the website for more information. It is s small organisation that has been around for about 3 years.
"I came here in October 2009 working as a consultant for Accenture through Accenture's Development Partnerships which sends consultants to international development organisations at a reduced rate. I worked directly for the COO to implement operations related initiatives.
