Meet this year’s Princeton in Africa Fellow :

Walter Lohmann

Walter Lohmann: “I graduated from Georgetown University in 2018 with a degree in International Politics and a certificate in African Studies. During my time at Georgetown, I studied international institutions, African affairs, and education, writing my undergraduate thesis on Innovative Education Programs in Kenya. I spent the fall of my junior year studying in Strasbourg, France and also interned in Rwanda at a university program called Kepler Kigali, where I assisted faculty and staff and supported programming for extracurricular activities, while mentoring and tutoring students. At Georgetown, I worked on the logistics committee for the school’s Africa Business Conference and served as a Peer Advisor to freshmen at the School of Foreign Service. Iwas also selected as a Global Curriculum Fellow by the D.C. Public Schools Department of Global Education; through this fellowship, I assisted in designing an African Studies course for high school students. I am excited to teach Geography here at Maru-a-Pula for the next year as a Princeton in Africa Fellow!”
