Alumni Update: Paul Vergara in Cape Town, South Africa

Paul Vergara ('13, Globalization of Music & Dance Culture) is working in South Africa for Grassroots Soccer. Paul recently joined the Partnerships Team at the headquarters in Cape Town. Within two weeks of working at his new post in Cape Town, Paul was surprised to meet UR students studying in South Africa, and one student participating in the Semester at Sea Program. Thank you to Paul for sending us updates and photos. Paul have traveled throughout most of South Africa as well as parts of Mozambique and Namibia. Paul studied abroad Spring, 2012, through the Semester at Sea Program. We are happy he was lucky enough to meet Lauren Kee who is currently on the Semester at Sea Program.
