Last weekend, AUA Summer Service Intern Zeeshan Shad, who taught English in Zanzibar, gave a presentation on his experience abroad at a college admissions and internship seminar organized by the Aligarh Muslim University Alumni Association. Zeeshan, pictured right at the event, got a host of questions about America’s Unofficial Ambassadors and shared his story of service. Way to go, Zeeshan!
