I am Samina Yasmin and I am an international student from Pakistan. Having an MA in English Literature and Linguistics in my hand, I realized that my interests are nowhere near literature. It took me further couple of years to figure out what my interest was. Not too late, I decided to get a doctorate in Applied Linguistics/ TESOL and here I am in SLAT exploring the best of scholarship.
Teaching is my passion! I have been teaching English literature, linguistics and ESL courses for 7 years. Currently a USAID sponsored graduate student, I have also worked as a Fulbright Language Teaching Assistant (2011-2012) for Urdu language at the University of Texas at Austin. I am proud to be serving Critical Language Program at University of Arizona as a tutor and examiner for Hindi language. I intend to major in pedagogy and minor in language ideologies, with an ambition to bring a positive change in teaching EFL in my home country.
