I founded the Fellowship for Building Intercultural Communities (FBIC) seeks to educate and empower students through intercultural dialogue at the University of Pennsylvania. Through various workshops and sessions, this semester-long program engages a cohort in topics such as stereotypes, privilege, and race relations. By engaging critically with their peers, fellows will learn how to effectively work with diverse groups of people, apply learned skills of intercultural dialogue in a civic capacity, and be allies for each other beyond their FBIC experience. Since its start in 2012, we have had 20+ facilitators and 60+ fellows go through our program.
FBIC has been supported by the Kathryn D. Davis Projects for Peace, Clinton Global Initiative University, Penn-Columbia Social Impact House, and the Jefferson Awards Foundation. It was also featured during the UN Day of Peace 2014 Ceremony at the UN Headquarters.
