Davis International Fellow
Posted on April 12, 2010
Merretta Dickinson ’12 has been awarded a Davis International Fellowship to go to Windhoek, Namibia, for the summer of 2010 and intern at the Bernhard Nordkamp Center.
The center that she will be working with provides after-school programs for local children, as well as weekend sports and choir programs.
Merretta hopes to teach small after school classes for children in grades one through five, and tutor children grades eight through twelve. Working in Namibia, Merretta hopes to “learn about another culture, and develop skills that will aid me in my future education and career choices as I will be learning how NGO assistance programs are developed and implemented”.
