Imani's Study Abroad - South Africa

$1,680 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 23 people in 27 months
Hello everyone!

 
My name is Imani Briscoe, and I am a Communications major with a concentration in Digital Media at Saint Joseph’s University entering into my senior year this Fall.

I am thrilled to share with you that I have been accepted into the Center for Global Education and Experience at Augsburg College (CGEE) South Africa Program: Nation Building, Globalization and Decolonizing the Mind for the Fall 2016 academic semester which will begin on August 14th and I will be back in the states in early December. Some unique features of my trip include:

**Learning about the process of building a nation and identity amidst challenges such as underdevelopment, extreme inequality, and painful racial and colonial legacies

**A focus on the impact of gender, race, culture, and identity on democratic processes, human rights issues, and social and economic advancement today.

**Gaining hands-on work experience with an internship in a development agency (for credit).

**Both rural and urban host family stays in each country to add to the in-depth cultural experience. When not with host families, I will stay in the CGEE house in Windhoek, a 10-minute walk from downtown.

**Included excursions within Namibia, as well as to South Africa (Johannesburg and Capetown).

 I am excited and especially anxious to be immersed in South African culture and history, and develop a better understanding of South Africa’s global significance. 

I am extremely blessed to have this opportunity and I would greatly appreciate if you can donate any amount to go towards my travels, plane tickets, vaccinations
and international experience.
