“After learning about Slovakia’s rich history, deep culture, and beautiful natural landscapes, it was so easy to fall in love with,” Perez said. “Outside of teaching, I’m excited to integrate myself into a new community and meet plenty of new friends.” 

He said. After his Fulbright, he plans to continue teaching English or pursue a career in publishing.
