Meet this year’s Princeton in Africa Fellow :

Luisa Banchoff

Luisa Banchoff : “At Princeton, I studied religious and cultural diversity, with a particular emphasis on interfaith dialogue. My interest in these topics extended beyond the classroom, inspiring me to organize numerous intercultural initiatives on campus. As a history teacher at MaP, I look forward to engaging my students with the very same questions that first got me interested in teaching: who writes the historical narrative? How do our own perspectives impact the way we see the world? And how can we seek to include voices that have previously gone unheard? I look forward to having these conversations in such a culturally diverse setting as MaP”

Emily Stolfus

Emily Stolfus : “At Kansas State University I studied Elementary Education, International Studies, Spanish, and Nonprofit Leadership Studies. Throughout university I also had the opportunity to teach English in Mexico, Chile, and Ecuador, as well as teach leadership classes at my own university. At Maru-a-Pula I am excited to be teaching Geography and Life Orientation and enjoy challenging my students to think critically and creatively about the world around them.”
