about Intercultural Eyes
I began this journey as a 17-year-old exchange student to Strasbourg France. This led me to study geography and, eventually, to my PhD from Syracuse University in 1985. I found my professional home at AFS in 1980, where I worked for nearly 30 years, most recently as the Director of Intercultural Education and Research in the international office. In 1991-92, I had the honor of receiving an Indo-American Fellowship from the U.S. and Indian governments for advanced study in India where I stayed for three months, learning about the re-entry experience of Indians who studied in the USA. In 2002 I had another chance for an exchange experience, living for two months in Lima, Peru while working with our AFS office there. I have never stopped being interested in cultures and languages, including my own.
Intercultural Eyes is about my ongoing journey as a geographer and as an intercultural explorer.
