Ever wondered what it’s like to work for a member of parliament in another country? How about the National Council for Arts and Culture? UW Tacoma students, Katie Juhnke and Olyvia Salter join their professor, Cynthia Howson, to share their winter adventures as interns in The Gambia in West Africa.

Katie Juhnke is a senior in Ethnic, Gender, and Labor Studies with a focus in identity preservation and cultural survival of groups in colonized societies. Olyvia Salter is junior in Law and Policy, looking forward to a summer internship with Governor Inslee. They are joined by their professor, Dr. Cynthia Howson, a political economist in Ethnic, Gender, and Labor Studies at the University of Washington, Tacoma. Since living in The Gambia in 2002, Dr. Howson has continued to work, conduct research, and seek out opportunities to return to West Africa.

Join us at our Travel Talk on May 16 at Annie Wright Schools - no RSVP necessary!
