Students Blog Their Summer Adventures

Tuesday, June 12, 2012 - 14:54

This summer, MHC students are once again actively blogging about their experiences—sporting, cultural, and educational—from around the world.

In Kosovo:
Five MHC soccer players are presently traveling in Kosovo to promote the sport for girls. The students and coaches Anna Baeth and Carly Gettler are offering coaching and training sessions, meeting government officials and sports administrators, and attending local sports events. The students are also learning about the country, its challenges, and what it has to offer to the world.

From the students’ blog: “While the day was filled with many meetings in which we discussed the theories and potential outcomes for sport, and women in particular, in Kosovo, it was certainly fun to see sport, and the culture of sport, in action.” Read more.

At Wellesley College:
Quinn Sillers ‘12 is attending the Women in Public Service Project’s Summer Institute at Wellesley College, scheduled through June 22.

The Women in Public Service Project (WPSP) is an initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the remaining Seven Sister colleges to advance women to positions of influence in governments and civic organizations worldwide. Delegates from 22 countries are attending this inaugural summer institute, part of the effort to train the next generation of women leaders. Follow the action with Quinn.

In Rio de Janiero:
Environmental studies majors Emma Puka-Beals ‘12, Bridget Brady ‘12, Ahdi Zuber ’13, and Angela Kim ’13, and economics major Julianna Lord ’13 are blogging from this year’s Earth Summit in Rio de Janiero. The conference, known formally as the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development—or Rio+20—marks the 20th anniversary of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development.
