Two Auggies Chosen for National China Delegation
Two Augsburg students, Sadiya Jiru and Hussein Abdullahi, were chosen to participate in the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Incorporated (CBCF) Emerging Leaders: US-China Study Abroad Delegation. Sadiya is a junior majoring in Computer Science, and Hussein is a senior Biology/Chemistry double major.
Sadiya and Hussein are two of just 20 students from around the country chosen to participate. This elite delegation of STEM students all had exceptional coursework in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. They will have the opportunity to network with high-achieving STEM peers from the black community and engage an intercultural experience to a country that is a leader in STEM fields.
Delegates have almost all program and travel costs covered by CBCF. They met in Washington, D.C for a briefing with government officials before departing for two weeks in Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai. They will brief officials in D.C on their experience before returning to Minnesota. The program will take place June 25 to July 13.
During the program, students will study Mandarin, Chinese history & culture, and interact with Chinese leaders in science and technology. Included is a tour of the Great Wall and the Forbidden City in Beijing, lectures and workshops about China's economy, education system, art, and history, and US-China relations.
"The CBCF is committed to providing students with a global perspective," said A. Shuanise Washington, president and chief executive officer of the CBCF. "The China study abroad program will allow our students to see the educational and career opportunities that are available to them internationally."
The China-U.S. Exchange Foundation (CUSEF) organized and administered the program in collaboration with the CBCF.
