Germany, English Teaching Assistantship
Alyson Vu graduated from the University of Houston in 2023 with honors as a Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa scholar. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology while completing the teachHouston program. In pursuit of her passions in dentistry, education, and the German language, she engaged in the UH ASDA pre-dental club and the inaugural cohort of the STEM RISE research program. She was also a student biology teacher in Houston ISD. Inspired by her CBYX high school exchange year in Germany and dedication to education, she pursued the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship. Currently, Alyson teaches English at a vocational school in Germany and particularly enjoys connecting with students in her English Chitchat Afterschool Club. In her spare time, she finds joy in collecting stories from strangers abroad for her passion project, The Red Book Projekt. She sees her Fulbright year as an opportunity to enhance her communication and intercultural skills, paving the way for a successful career in dentistry. Following Fulbright, Alyson is excited to announce her admission into dental school this fall.
