Deeneaus Polk, an alumnus of the Pi Epsilon Chapter at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s Jackson County Campus and the 2007-08 International Vice President for Division II, was a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant to Germany in 2011-12 (read about his experience). He is now a Fulbright Alumni Ambassador who serves as a representative, recruiter and spokesperson for the Fulbright Program. Polk attended NerdNation 2015 in San Antonio, Texas, and spoke with attendees about his experience overseas. "One of the things that motivates me to go to work every day is the idea that I can expose folks to the opportunities and experiences that I have been extraordinarily lucky to be a part of," he said in a blog post about attending NerdNation. "Speaking to so many students about my life after having served as an officer was amazing because I could see in their eyes how they were making plans to take advantage of the same opportunities I had."
