Agnes Doka (MAPP '11) has had an interesting life – one that has taken her to Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Italy, Libya, Pakistan, Uganda, and many other places in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. There has been a good deal of continuity too. "Wherever I go and whatever I do, it involves communications in some way. That's what I've always been doing," she says.
This summer, SPP alumna Rumbidzai Masango (MPA ’15) and students Corina Ajder and Balint Nemeth (both MPA ’16) embarked on exciting opportunities to work on key policy issues in Nairobi, Kenya. “The policy space in Africa is constantly changing,” noted Masango. “This is both exciting and frustrating. I like working in Nairobi because Kenya is an influential country in East Africa and is also near Addis Ababa, the melting pot of policy engagement in Africa.”
