We presented our initiative to the judges and won FIRST PLACE!!!
We are excited and getting ready to present! We just arrived to the Department of State and will be presenting soon! We will keep you updated after our presentation, but we are very excited and grateful to be here!
The four of us are on our way to D.C.! We are looking forward to meeting our two other team members once we arrive to D.C. They're coming from Cleveland and Arizona. Once we arrive we will get settled into the hotel and begin practicing for our presentation on Monday!
Overall, the experience was magnificent. The exposure to business in Dubai both small and large was fascinating. I have toured other countries and even participated in a trade mission to Egypt for a printing convention. I had been in free zones then, but I had no comprehension of what exactly that meant for me as a buyer or for the companies located there. This is a testament to both the trip itself, and the program as a whole. The added benefit of this trip was to spend time with the cohort that had met in person only once before. I know there will be lifelong friendships from this program, and I look forward to working with my classmates in the future.
Take a perfect coastal town and put it between the sea and a mountain. Now add steps. Lots of them, and there you have Dubrovnik.
It is hard to believe that my first full week in Paris has come to an end. I am at a loss of words for how much beauty I have experienced in just 7 days. My week has consisted of nothing but good company, getting lost, testing new limits, indulging in good food, and having my mind blown.
This past Spring I studied abroad in Tokyo, Japan. I studied through one of the programs associated with RIT called CIEE. My overall experience was just awesome to simplify things.

Today some of us spent time exploring the countryside of Vietnam through a spectacular bus and boat tour of the Mekong Delta. It was a very different experience from the bustling city life of Ho Chi Minh City.We had seen many cemeteries in the family household farmlands during the 1.5 hours of bus ride from the Ho Chi Minh City to the Mekong Delta.
Today, we visited IBM Vietnam. The office in IBM Vietnam was very nice and the speech was great. The country leader for IBM was Do Thi Huong Tra, a very impressive lady who shared her experience with us. It was yet another example of women in leadership in Vietnam which we found a bit surprising.
