My StoryMy name is Teodora Petkova and I immigrated to the United States when I was five years old. Even though I was young when I came to the states, I kept in touch with my culture by attending Bulgarian School and partaking in many cultural gatherings. I love volunteering at art and cultural festivals because it brings me joy to see people from all around the globe rejoicing at the feeling of finding home away from home. I am a neuroscience major at the University of Texas at Dallas, and I recently joined the Kappa Alpha Theta chapter here. I am passionate about the study of neurodegenerative dieseases and the allieviation of hunger in third world regions. I have had personal intersction with people who have not eaten for days,because every summer when I go back to Eastern Europe I am exposed to poverty ridden popualtions. I am so fortunate to have what I have, and I would like to take advantage of the privileged lifestyle I lead and give back to the community.
