Incoming Ford School BA student Stephanie Parrish selected to visit Kenya as part of the ONE Campus Challenge

Thursday, May 14, 2009

Stephanie Parrish (BA ’11) was one of just five American college students selected to travel to Kenya with ONE, a nonpartisan, grassroots campaign and advocacy organization committed to the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Parrish is the University of Michigan's designated leader for the ONE Campus Challenge, through which ONE works to build mobilization and advocacy skills on college campuses. She was selected for the Kenya trip after a rigorous application process. ONE intends for the trip to Kenya to show Parrish and other winners how "their... work in the United States translates to real, positive change on the ground in Africa." Parrish is headed into her junior year at the U-M and will start the Ford School's two-year Bachelor of Arts in Public Policy program in the fall.
