Domanique Anderson is a Senior studying international relations. She is originally from Nashville, TN. In summer 2018 she was given the opportunity to conduct research on the strategic goals of the One Belt One Road initiative during her internship at the Eurasia Centere. Doing research on the One Belt One road initiative sparked her interest in the causal relationship between international organizations and states in Africa. On this trip she hopes to deepen her understanding of the struggles faced by developing nations in Africa; while also drawing connections between racial identity and political progress in the post-apartheid era.
Tainaya Nash is a Senior at American University majoring in journalism and minoring in marketing. She has a passion for traveling, learning and community service. Over the years she has participated in a service learning trip to Colorado where she volunteered on a Navajo reservation and learned about the laws and regulations forced upon people who reside on Navajo reservations. In addition to this she has completed a summer and semester abroad in Paraguay and London. During her time in Paraguay she stayed with a host family and was able to fully immerse herself into their culture and lifestyle. Now she is eager to travel to South Africa to engage with people and learn how post- apartheid and racial identity affect many South Africans today.
