Jenny Strugnell has been named APTLII Coordinator for Spring and Summer 2018. Jenny is a third-year undergraduate student majoring in International Studies with a certificate in Afro-American Studies. She was an intern working with the Institute for Regional and International Studies and APTLII prior to her current appointment.
“I have been working with APTLII since October 2016, and have thoroughly enjoyed seeing how the program operates and seeks to improve each year. My experience with APTLII has given me skills I never planned to acquire, including website design and marketing experience. In my studies, I have focused on international issues, engaging in an international studies major with a concentration on global security. As I progress outside of the world of academia, I hope to pursue work in domestic and international poverty abatement. My work with APTLII has opened up my world to the intricacies of language study, and has given me a greater appreciation of the skill it takes to excel at foreign language learning. I’m in awe of all our students and instructors for dedicating themselves to bettering their linguistic breadth.”
