Honored to have won 2nd place in the 2015 TOP Alumni photography contest. The theme was protecting the environment.
During my time in New Orleans at the National Council for the Social Studies, I was able to meet several TOP alumns. They shared their thoughts on how the TOP program has helped their career.
Top asked me to join them and attend the National Council for the Social Studies Conference (NCSS) in New Orleans. It didn't take long for me to immediately say "Yes!". We were there to promote the TOP Germany program. Let's see how hard this sell is... amazing life changing experience provided in full by an amazing group of people, where you can learn about German culture and history, while bringing this back to your school and community? Seems like an easy job! :) I loved visiting New Orleans. It was an amazing city that definitely lived up to the hype.
