Nine Union College seniors were recently chosen to represent the College’s next Minerva Fellows program.
They will travel the globe to work in developing countries while paired up with a social entrepreneurial organization. The students will work for 11 months and return to the College and live in a Minerva house for one month, where they will participate in a social entrepreneurial course and educate current students about their experiences abroad.
This year's group of fellows are:
Meredith Adamo: Save the Children – Nicaragua
Eric Spector: Bagru Textiles – India
Ben Weiner: Engeye Health Clinic - Uganda
Jacqui Smith and Andrew Vinales: Yanapuma Foundation - Ecuador
Ariel Blum and Rebecca Duffy: The Global Child – Cambodia
James “Rogan” Quinn: Wellbody Alliance – Sierra Leone
Winnie Wakaba: The Gift of Hope – South Africa
