Biggie Tangane, International Student, Botswana
While at AU, Biggie embarked on a European Union-focused study abroad program in Brussels, which he describes as life-changing. Biggie participated in several extra-curricular activities on campus and took advantage of all that D.C has to offer—internships, summer jobs and fun activities. After graduation, Biggie moved to Mauritius, South Africa, and Botswana to work for several social-impact organizations. Biggie is currently a Strategy & Business Development Manager for De Beers Group where he works to protect consumer confidence on diamonds that are ethically sourced from Southern Africa, which subsequently contributes to the economic well-being of communities where these diamonds are mined.
