Amanda Phanivong Visits the Big Apple

We’re honored to help Amanda Phanivong (Campus High School, ’20) participate in a New York trip hosted by the Elliott School of Communication at Wichita State University.

The purpose of the trip was to explore how different communities and cultures interact, as well as meeting with the following employers: Microsoft, Wasserman, TBWA\Chiat Day Agency and Mt. Sinai.

Amanda says, “As part of my international and intercultural communication course, having the opportunity to go to New York taught me about the diverse communities that reside in New York, as well as New York culture overall. I was able to visit Little Italy and Chinatown and was exposed to the different languages, as well as different foods which are a big part of both cultures. I also got to visit many historical places and learned about their significance to the community and American culture.”
