One Penn alumna connects businesses to the power of recycling

“I get to do work that makes the world a better place just by working at TerraCycle,” shares Maame Mensah (Master of Environmental Studies ’11), the US Account Director of Brand Partnerships at TerraCycle. Maame’s organization is the world leader in the collection and recycling of waste that is generally considered non-recyclable.

Since 2008, our popular Walk-In Wednesdays at LPS have provided a convenient opportunity for prospective students to meet one on one with a Recruitment Specialist during a lunch break or after work – no appointment necessary!

Jesse Raines, a senior majoring in Africana Studies in the LPS Bachelor of Arts program, participated in a grant-funded filmmaking course through Penn Summer Abroad. In partnership with the nonprofit FilmAid, students made documentaries, educational videos and virtual reality films with residents in the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. Jesse, an Army veteran who served three tours in Afghanistan, and previously lived and worked in western Africa, taught his classmates key phrases in Swahili.

Gianna Del Rossi wants to use her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Penn and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA) to make the art direction in video games more spectacular. She recently took the course Gods, Ghosts and Monsters this past summer and it inspired her to create new works of art based on Greek mythology. The class helped connect her drawing style to ancient history and mythology. She also discovered the intersection of her studies to the lore and visual storytelling of video games.
