Alumna Selected for Obama Foundation’s 2018 Africa Program

Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane (AUI) alumna Zineb Lahbabi—International Studies major, Class of 2013 - has recently been selected to be a participant of the Obama Foundation’s “2018 Africa Program”, which will take place in Johannesburg, South Africa, between July 14th and 18th.

The “Africa Program” is a prestigious, yearlong initiative whose aim is to prepare young African leaders for various roles in the government, civil service, and private sector. Participants in attendance of this July’s program will have the chance to meet with prominent members of the Obama administration, and, at the end of the program, will have the chance to attend a town-hall-style meeting headed by former American President Barrack Obama himself.

Zineb is one of 200 participants, chosen from an applicant pool of nearly 10,000 candidates. AUI is very proud of Zineb and can’t wait to see what she’ll do next!
