Kestra James, Modern Languages Graduate Student, Featured During Black History Month
By Emily Snelling
Congratulations to Kestra James, graduate student in the Global Media and Cultures master's program, for being celebrated during Black History Month in GT's IMPACT news feature.
"As an undergraduate student, James helped organize a trip to Munich, Germany, to assist 200 Syrian refugees in adjusting to their new lives in Europe. As a graduate student, she’s now helping coordinate programming for Georgia Tech’s brand new master’s program in Global Media and Cultures. This summer, she plans to return to Germany where she’ll be working on a documentary about the Afro-German community. She hopes to inspire future generations to pursue the fields they develop a passion for, particularly language studies.
“If you have an interest and you're willing to work toward your goals, you will be successful,” says James."
