    Students made these name tags in the second lesson, each time we tried them on they practised responding to 'What is your name?" in English. Today they got to take them home!

SOW National Team: Trip Compendium

From the Students of the World blog:

It has been almost four weeks, and it still feels like yesterday we were anticipating what this experience would be like. As Jackie’s fortune cookie foretold the night before our departure; “Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter.” The days have fused into a collection of memories and revelations, each of us taking different detours on the road we’ve traveled together. Sometimes leading us to different surprises, highlights, and stories to share. Here is a concise exploration of our thoughts looking back on our experience, bittersweet nostalgia on the day we leave.  -Andrea

Over the course of the next week, TYO will post to this blog many of the SOW National Team’s reflections. It was an absolute pleasure hosting them in Nablus the last four weeks. We will miss dearly their passion, energy and commitment to their work. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.

Welcome SOW National Team!

TYO is delighted to welcome back to its Nablus Center members of Students of the World. This June, the SOW National Team will be in Nablus documenting TYO’s programs and activities.

Welcome back, friends!

Andrea Patiño – Photographer. A native from Bogota, Colombia, Andrea Patiño is in her third year at Duke University majoring in Cultural Anthropology. She has been engaged in documentary photography for about a year now and is very passionate about it. While photography—especially photographing others—is an activity that poses a lot of questions, particularly about ethics, Andrea thinks that this medium is one of the best ways to tell a story.

Jackie Turner – Filmmaker. Jackie Turner is in her third year at the University of Michigan, majoring in Program in the Environment and Screen Arts and Cultures and looking towards a career in environmental and social documentary.  At U of M, Jackie is an executive producer and board member of M-agination Films, a student-run production organization focused on helping connect students from all disciplines who want to make films with the resources to do so.  She has produced short documentary films about her previous travels to Guatemala, Kenya and Costa Rica.

Madeline Lewis – Development Coordinator. Madeline Lewis is a third year Foreign Affairs major at the University of Virginia’s Woodrow Wilson Department of Politics. She has a passion for anything international and is excited about her position on the 2011 SOW National team as the Development Coordinator. Born and raised in Dallas, Madeline’s love for traveling led her to Charlottesville for college, where she has immersed herself in hiking adventures and the history surrounding her college town.

Sarah Osman – Journalist. Sarah Osman is a senior at the University of Michigan majoring in English and Communications. She is originally from New Jersey but her home is now in Commerce, MI.  She enjoys writing and creating concepts for LEAD Magazine as the Creative Director.

Kate Simpson – Producer. Kate is a senior majoring in philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. Through riding in a charity bicycle tour across North America, Kate discovered her love of nonprofits and hopes to someday have a career in that field. She is excited to be a part of Students of the World because it will allow her to follow her passion for serving others, challenge her boundaries, and to further explore the world.

Jon Kasbe – Assistant Filmmaker. Jon is a curious filmmaker at UNC-Chapel Hill majoring in media production. Last semester, Jon worked with The Daily Tar Heel creating online videos for the multimedia page. Jon is currently freelancing as a multimedia journalist for Reese Felts Digital News, an innovative digital news publication. Jon is also the director of photography for the one-hour drama “Above The Fold,” a scripted student web/TV show.
