Renée Saunier Brewer: Wine and dine

The education of Renée Saunier Brewer ’03 AG into the sophisticated world of the juice of the grape has taken her all over the globe at a very young age, but each step of the way was paved with more forethought and practicality and less wanderlust than it would first appear

Politically Comprehensive with Gwendolyn Schaefer

Gwendolyn Schaefer knew she wanted to study abroad in the Middle East, but the Arab Spring presented a potential threat to her personal security. Her first two choices were Egypt and Syria, but both were deep in the throes of political unrest. Eventually, she landed in Amman, Jordan through Education Abroad at UK with AMIDEAST. There, she was paired with an internship at Jordan’s Ministry of Political Development. The trip made such a mark on Schaefer that she quickly returned.

Schaefer’s second trip was helped by a summer research grant from UK’s Office of Undergraduate Research. The grant allowed her to return and carry out her own research project studying female Iraqi refugees in Jordan.

In this podcast, Schaefer, now a senior at the University of Kentucky majoring in both Geography and International Studies, discusses her travels and how her two different majors prepared her for the work she did overseas and why other students should consider doing the same.
