Imani's Study Abroad - South Africa
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.

I am excited to announce that we have reached 50% of our goal! I want to thank everyone who has donated to support me and I ask that everyone continues to share my campaign and encourage friends and family members to donate as well. Remember that every little bit helps! There are only 11 more days until I go abroad but I will keep this campaign going until we've reached our goal! Thank you for the love and support!
