"My name is Tene Goodwin and I recently completed my studies at UC Davis in economics and professional writing in the College of Letters and Science. This summer I had the amazing opportunity to work as a communications intern with UC Davis Global Affairs and support the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders.

So much so that when I came to UC Davis and heard about their Big Idea of Global Education for All, I decided it was geared towards other students, not me.
