Hi CIE family!

 

I came to CIE to better understand the recognition and legitimacy of nonformal and complementary education for children, having previously worked in implementing such programs for various national and international NGOs in South Asia. Fortunately, I was able to do just that, as well as forge meaningful and lasting relationships with faculty and classmates! I began as an Ed.D. student and candidate from 2006-2009 and graduated with an Ed.S. in 2019.

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.

Halona Agouda (M.Ed. 2008)

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.
