All Abroad!

Three Pace students have been awarded scholarships to study in Hong Kong and Russia this summer as part of the U.S. Department of State’s prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program. Meet the winners.

Three Pace students are among the 700 outstanding American undergraduate students from 270 colleges and universities across the U.S., who have been selected to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, to participate in a study abroad or international internship program during the summer 2013 academic term. The total amount of summer scholarship funding awarded to Pace students by Gilman is $12,000.

The Summer 2013 Gilman Scholarship recipients are:

Jacqueline Kelleher ’15, a Political Science and Arts and Entertainment Management double major, will be participating in the Pace Exchange Program at Lingnan University in Hong Kong.  “I chose to study abroad to immerse myself in a place that is unfamiliar to me, to reflect on my education in America, and to see what other institutions have to offer. Receiving the Gilman scholarship is a true blessing and I can’t wait to share my experience with my fellow Pace students when I return in the fall,” she says.

Kelleher is a 2013-2014 Head Delegate for Pace’s award-winning Model UN team, a Resident Advisor, Vice President of the Arts and Entertainment Management Industry Network, and a UNV 101 and Dyson House Peer Leader.

Diana De Paula, an International Management major with a dual minor in Latin American Studies and Marketing, will be studying at St. Petersburg State University in Russia, through the Council on International Educational Exchange. Additionally, De Paula was one of only 30 students awarded a Critical Need Language Enhancement Award to study Russian. When asked why she chose to study abroad, she quoted Mark Twain: “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”

During the upcoming academic year she will serve as Student Government’s Executive Vice President. In the past she has held numerous leadership roles on campus such as being a Resident Advisor for two years and SGA Lubin School of Business President. Outside of Pace she has interned at NBC and currently works at SEBA International, a leading boutique executive search firm.

Jia Jun Chen ’16, an International Business major, will participate in the Pace Exchange Program at Lingnan University in Hong Kong.

“Study abroad experiences can enhance my global knowledge of the world including, culture, language, and economy, preparing me for a more successful career in international management,” she says.

Jun Chen is also a member of Sigma Alpha Pi, the National Honor Society of Leadership and was recently accepted to the National Honor Society for sophomores, Lambda Delta. She is also a national member of Ascend, the professional organization of Pan-Asian business leaders.

Business Abroad

On April 3 and 4, Lubin will take you on a journey from Asia to Africa with two lectures on the future of Chinese financial markets and doing business in Morocco, Tunisia, and Algeria.

First up, on Wednesday, April 3, the Confucius Institute and Lubin’s Center for Global Business Programs present The Future of the Chinese Financial Markets with author Michael A. Santoro, PhD, JD, at 3:00 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room on the NYC Campus.

He is the author of China 2020: How Western Business Can—and Should—Influence Social and Political Change, and his latest book (co-written with Ronald J. Strauss) is Wall Street Values: Business Ethics and the Global Financial Crisis.

Then, on Thursday, April 4, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Lubin and the U.S. Commercial Service Department of Commerce invite you to learn about the opportunities and challenges of doing business in North Africa from experts at Doing Business in Africa:  Focus on Morocco, Tunisia, and Algeria in Lecture Hall West in One Pace Plaza.

Register in advance by e-mail mmatthews@pace.edu or call (212) 831-0900.

Asia in the Middle East

From Alabama to New York to Switzerland to Israel to Oxford, Pace student Asia Mcdougle-Stamey ’13 is promoting conflict resolution across the globe. >>Read More

Dyson student Asia Mcdougle-Stamey ’13 is currently spending the 2012-2013 academic year in Israel, after earning four awards to study at the University of Haifa: the University of Haifa Presidential Scholarship, MASA Israel Scholarship, University of Haifa Internship Program, and University of Haifa Peace and Conflict Honors Program, an interdisciplinary program that brings international students to the university to examine the cultural, economic, educational, historical, political, psychological, religious, and social aspects of conflict resolution and peace efforts.

will also ensure the editorial accuracy of all web, print, and multimedia content. Majoring in Political Science with a concentration in International Relations and a dual minor in Peace and Conflict and Middle Eastern studies, the University of Haifa proved a perfect fit for Asia, who is putting her major into motion studying modern standard Arabic and modern Hebrew along with conflict resolution with a focus on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“I had already attended the University of Haifa for an intensive Hebrew course after a Birthright trip. I noticed that the university was very distinct—people from all over the Middle East, and the fabric of the Middle East. It really seemed like a model for peace efforts,” she says.

In addition to immersing herself in the language, culture, and peace efforts in Israel, Asia is volunteering at a Holocaust Community Center in a small neighborhood in Haifa made up of only Holocaust survivors, where she is spending time with the survivors and will also be teaching a belly dance class starting in January through MASA Israel, a program that offers Jewish students opportunities to study and volunteer in Israel. And, if that’s not enough, she’s currently an emergency management and intelligence intern at the Institute of Terrorism Research and Response in Jerusalem.

Asia credits Pace courses in conflict resolution and the Model UN, which she says helped prepare her for the program. “Through Pace I can study the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and now study with my own eyes,” she says. “Model UN allowed me to develop skills such as public speaking and debate and provided a base and foundation for international relations knowledge. I wouldn’t know as much without the Model UN team. The Model UN team brings the academic classroom to life. It provides a workshop rather than just a lecture.”

Last March, Asia and 10 other delegates from Pace’s Model UN team were selected to analyze and debate universal topics at the Geneva International Model UN conference in Switzerland. Asia also participated in the 2011 National Model UN DC where she represented the Philippines and was recognized with an “Honorable Mention” group award. This November, she took a short break from her work in Israel, having been selected as one of 500 students from across the world to attend the Oxford International Model UN Conference as a delegate.

Next up: Applying for a Jewish education and Israeli government teaching fellowship in Israel which will begin in the spring and looking at graduate schools to earn a dual masters in Behavior Analysis and National Security.

Asia, who moved to New York from Dauphin Island, Alabama, couldn’t be happier with her decision to come to Pace. “I was accepted into Vanderbilt, but Pace was my first choice because it has such incredible opportunities,” she says. “I wouldn’t be able to get those opportunities in Dauphin Island. Between conflict analysis research and Model UN, I really think that Pace was the perfect choice for me.”

A Success Story at Sea

Pace student Breanna Romaine-Giuliano ’13 has embarked on many adventures since arriving at Pace three years ago. This summer, it was a voyage around Latin America that changed her life.

Pace student Breanna Romaine-Giuliano ’13 has embarked on many adventures since arriving at Pace three years ago. This summer, it was a voyage around Latin America that changed her life.

A Pforzheimer Honors College and Dyson Political Science major with minors in Criminal Justice, Peace and Justice Studies, and Sociology/Anthropology, and member of Pace’s award-winning Model United Nations team, Breanna is no stranger to engaging in global issues and policy. But for the aspiring international human rights lawyer, it was her short-term Semester at Sea voyage which took her around Latin America in 25 days that not only changed her life, but, she hopes, will help her change the lives of others.

“Before the voyage I knew I wanted to be a human rights lawyer but I wasn’t necessarily sure what that meant. Now my eyes are open to all different types of career tracks that need human rights lawyers, or people working to secure these covenants in all countries,” she writes on her ePortfolio blog.

The ship, which served as both a floating campus with classrooms and as a form of transportation to explore coursework and cultures, focused on the United Nations Millennium Development goals and provided Breanna a unique opportunity to see first-hand how Belize, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Panama, and Peru, have begun to implement them.

“I read treaties, went to the ministries in these countries, met with diplomats in Peru, got a connection to the UN. You can’t describe how it helped me,” she says. “It gave me a huge understanding of how the west interacts with east, north, and south. It’s everything I wanted to do and more.”

And for those wary about the cost to attend an international program: “Memories over money,” was Breanna’s motto and her motivation. “Don’t let money be an issue. Apply to every scholarship. I didn’t have the money to go, but I wrote a 45-page appeal letter for a scholarship. I spent hours and I got it. If you want something, go get it,” she adds. “And bring your Pace shirt.”

And now, after barely having readjusted to life on land, she’s already looking to continue making a difference overseas. In addition to finishing up her last year at Pace, serving as Executive Vice President for Student Government Association and the editor of the Honors College newsletter, interning at Skadden law firm, chairing the student board of GOAL USA, and running a $10,000 fundraiser, among many other activities, Breanna is preparing her application for a prestigious Fulbright grant ,that offers fully funded opportunities to research, study, and teach around the world.

“I want to go to Kenya and understand the connection between FGM—female genital gender mutation—and colonialism,” she says of the research she began her sophomore year. “I’m a supporter of under developed countries—helping globally. Everyone’s a human and we’re all in this together.”

After that, it’s law school, where she plans to study human rights law. “I need the education—and then I’ll change the world,” she says.
