The Global Conversation is an online media platform for Brown University students, faculty, and alums to share their international ideas and initiatives.
Hi there. My name is Gabriela (Although on the track, most people call me Gabby) I am a triple jumper at Brown University competing in my final year of eligibility. I am concentrating in Visual Arts where my focus lies in Graphic Design and multimedia production. Off the track, I am a chief advisor for A Better World by Design - an internationally acclaimed design conference that creates connections that will make the world a better place. I enjoy star-gazing, surfing and local food.
And I'm Jordan, a pre-med student at Brown University, concentrating in Global Development Studies. I am a sub-Saharan Africa enthusiast, having studied abroad in Kenya in Fall of 2009. I returned in 2010 to take part in a malaria study in the coastal city of Mombasa. My passions are running (of course), acoustic guitar, reading, and disco-dancing.
In a little over two weeks, we will be traveling half way across the world. I hope you find interest in our project!
