As this incredibly busy spring semester comes to a close, I look back on my first attempt at implementing a robust internet radio with cautious satisfaction. Where I am pleased with it’s greatest strengths, it also has some glaring weaknesses and some kinks to be worked out immediately. That being said, MIIS Radio will be undergoing an overhaul during the summer months, so this podcast is a reflection of my journey to the DLC and through the first few stages of reviving MIIS Radio – enjoy!
For the final webisode of Africa Chatter for the Spring term we present to you Noel Mbise, a fulbright student from Tanzania, who has worked diligently in the IEP and MBA programs to reenter the field of resource management in Tanzania with renewed energy. His experience is unique and his voice and tone are reassuring. In the interview, we shared insights regarding the environment, travel to and from places within the continent of Africa, the community aspect of African cultures, how IEP issues are in fact everyone’s issues, and how healthy debate is fostered at the Institute. He was a magnificent person to interview and a wonderful panelist for the discussion following the African Nations Club screening of Delicious Peace Grows in a Ugandan Coffee bean. As special send-off, he is also graduating this Spring term, so congratulations to him!
Enjoy the podcast and post your reflections of MIIS Radio to help it grow over the summer months!
In this installment of MIIS Tales, I invited Yiray Wu to the booth. Yiray is a first-year Translation and Interpretation student originally from Taiwan. We got a chance to talk about her experiences studying English and German in the United States as well as Germany. She schooled me on the inner workings of the T&I program and what Translation and Interpretation students have to do to succeed. We also chatted about her personal goals and aspirations once she leaves MIIS. I had a great time hanging out with Yiray! Listen in on our conversation below:
