SOC Grad Freelances From Cairo for Associated Press

SOC graduate Danielle Desnoyers arrived in Cairo in September 2008 with no job and only the contacts she made through Prof. Gentile's Foreign Correspondence class.

But she was soon freelancing for the Associated Press and the Daily News Egypt, the International Herald Tribune's paper in Cairo. Proofreading and editing at some magazines came next, thanks to the connections she made through Cairo's tight-knit expatriot community.
