"Assalaamu Alaykum" from Katie Seckman, Morocco Program Leader
Katie at 13,665 feet: the summit of Mount Toubkal
I'm Katie Seckman--your fearless leader for what will be an exciting and highly-rewarding adventure in Morocco. After co-leading a Global LAB semester program through Morocco last fall, I'm greatly looked forward to returning with all of you and continuing to explore the mysteries and marvels of one of my favorite countries. After living in Colorado, I went on to graduate from Drake University with a degree in International Relations. From there, I ventured to Morocco as a Fulbright Scholar. My primary research was focused on the role of women in Moroccan politics, but I was also very fortunate to spend a great deal of time hiking, exploring life outside the cities, and improving my French and Arabic. All of you are in for a wonderful adventure and I am really looking forward to meeting and working with all of you.
