Doane Journalism and Media student Alisha Forbes is one of five finalists nationwide in a Student Diplomat Video Contest sponsored by NAFSA: Association of International Educators. She could win a $1,000 travel voucher if her video is chosen for the top prize.
She needs help, though. The decision as to which of the five videos will win is based, in part, on the number of public votes she receives for her video. Unfortunately, because she is studying abroad in Africa, she didn’t see the email that she was a finalist for five days so she is five days behind in voting.
Please click the link to see and vote for Alisha’s video.
