Throughout the past few weeks, we have asked alumni of the World Affairs Seminar to share their stories from their seminar experiences. We have always known that our delegates go on to do great things after the seminar – this testimonial contest proved that we have some pretty amazing alumni. We are excited to announce our contest winners!
