Mariel Shilling Shares about her Experience at the Forodhani Secondary School
AUA volunteer Mariel Shilling presents at Blair High School, Silver Spring MD.
Mariel spent this past summer interning at the Forodhani Secondary School in Zanzibar. Last week, Mariel spoke about her experience teaching English and breaking down cultural barriers to a Global Issues class at Blair High School in Silver Spring MD. The students loved her presentation and asked many questions! Since she has returned, Mariel has also presented on two panels at Washington College, one about internship experiences on Fall Family Weekend and one for the political science department.
