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:
For our first interview segment of MIIS Tales, we’ve invited Lucas Brader, a Terrorism Certificate student, to talk about his time here at MIIS, some of his favorite things to do in Monterey, and his experience traveling to Morocco earlier this year. Listen as he recaps his journey through the Moroccan streets and talks about his research projects at both the Center for Nonproliferation Studies and the Monterey Terrorism Research and Education Project.
