Laila Rizk … a Global Guide!

Dr. Laila Rizk is a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at Columbia University. She shares with us her experience in  Brooklyn!

One To World is a private, New York based not-for-profit organization that brings Americans and scholars from around the world face-to-face to share their lives and perspectives. One To World is also the official coordinator of Enrichment Programs for the visiting Fulbright grantees studying in the greater New York area.  Dr. Laila Rizk volunteered in One To World’s Global Classroom program that offers New York City K-12 students with curriculum-based learning opportunities focused on an array of cross-cultural themes and global issues. As a Global Guide, she shared her culture with New York City public school students and helped them explore the world through an international perspective.  Dr. Laila Rizk gave her first workshop on October 28, 2016 to students of the Bushwick Community High School in Brooklyn.  Her workshop addressed the Egyptian Revolution as reflected in graffiti that transformed the walls of Cairo and represented the creativity of the people to develop new tools for protest.  She tells us, “This was indeed an excellent opportunity to share my culture and heritage with the students, while also enriching my own experience of American culture and education.”
