Real Talk with Daniel Kirzane

Bhakti Raval – April 9th, 2018

Judaism and Jewish life are extremely important to me, and as a professional in the Jewish world, I get not only to engage in Jewish activities but I also get to create Jewish opportunities and communities for those around me. It's a rare and beautiful thing to answer a calling so profoundly! Daniel Kirzane

Many of the Real Talk blog posts have dealt with stories of alumni who work for the government or some form of public service, but there has been a prominent group that hasn't been represented yet. UVA has a large religious studies department, a considerable population of students who are strong in their faith and want to dedicate their lives to it. Thus, this blog post will tell the story of a UVA alum who dedicated his college life to his faith and continued to do so upon graduation. 

What Happens After Graduation? One student's takeaways from AA/AS Alumni Panel

Brandon Thompson – April 8th, 2018

On Friday March 30th, I had the privilege of listening in on a panel of three black alumnae who were involved with the AS program. The panel was mainly a Q&A session where the three women discussed their experiences at UVA and what they do currently. The three women were Elisa Bell, Niya Bates, and Kelsey Watkins. Kelsey is a current UVA Law student. Niya currently works at Monticello as the Public Historian of Slavery and African American Life at the Thomas Jefferson Foundation. Elisa is the Marketing Director of Transurban in Washington D.C. 

Latin American News Digest: Internships Available!

Hannah Guffey – April 8th, 2018

The Latin American News Digest is seeking qualified students for a limited number of internships for Summer 2018. Because the goal of the Digest is essentially a didactic one, to spread the word about news from Latin America, we feel strongly about providing the opportunity for students to participate in this process. Student writers and researchers contribute to our weekly issues by aggregating and writing summaries of news articles found in Latin American sources.
