Philosophy Junior Thanh Mai Completes Summer Internship

Philosophy major Thanh Mai completed an internship this summer (2016) with the New Orleans Citizens Diplomacy Council (NOCDC). The NOCDC collaborates with organizations such as the  Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs to help promote mutual understanding between the United States and other countries. Thanh worked in the International Visitor and Leadership Program, where she helped foreign professionals who want to come to the US for short visits in order to pursue their interests here. Among these interests are HIV/AIDS research, refugee resources, film study, and art management. "Accountability is the most important lesson I learned working for the NOCDC," Thanh says, adding that "[t]he organization was great at training me."
