Kimberly Parekh (2006 - 2009)

Hi CIE family! I am an EdD candidate. I was part of the CIE community from 2006-2009 and have great deal of gratitude for the knowledge I gained and the relationships I made with both faculty and classmates. I have forged lifelong relationships and these friends continue to be an active part of my life today.

Duc Le (Lee) Nguyen (M.Ed. 2006)

After graduating from CIE, I decided to continue on the academic path. I was accepted to the Master’s program in Project Management at the George Washington University School of Business. Having enrolled as a part-time student, it takes me longer than usual to finish the degree but I’m happy since I can both work and study at the same time. I’ve changed a couple of jobs and World Learning is my most recent stop.

International education is a second career for me. I started out some years ago in a freelance career in video production at CBS News and a host of other independent documentary film companies in New York City. I loved the craft of making documentaries as I saw it as an opportunity to make people aware about issues of social injustice in the U.S. and across the globe. However, I quickly grew weary of compromising quality stories for the commercial market and I was in search of an international adventure.

Hi everyone. I’m joining CIE as a first-year doctoral candidate. Although I am of Indian descent, I was born and raised in the U.S., particularly in the suburbs of Houston and Washington D.C. For the past 8 years, I’ve been working in the field of education. After completing my studies at the University of Virginia, I began working as a teacher in rural Japan. Learning new ways to think and understand and watching others learn, that too in a ‘foreign’ environment was exciting! This experience led me to begin graduate studies in International Education at New York University.

But I never imagined after completing my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and Psychology from the University of North Carolina that I would travel all around the world working with so many different populations of learners. It truly has been a challenging, yet exciting journey.

I was born in rural Kenya, along the shores of Lake Victoria. As a child, I walked several miles to attend a dilapidated primary school which boasted nothing in terms of physical facilities [many times we had to endure the hot tropical sun to take classes under trees] but was bursting with hope and pride and joy. Our teachers worked tirelessly to ensure that we scored the best grades in national exams, often competing with students from better equipped and better staffed urban schools.
