Stories in Study Abroad: A Conversation with Our AAPI Trendsetters & Trailblazers

We have dedicated our year to celebrating many of our amazing Trendsetters and Trailblazers in study abroad — students who have paved the way for the future of an ever-expanding world! Trendsetters and Trailblazers: Paving the Way for Study Abroad kicked off in February to acknowledge the dynamic stories of our IES Abroad students. We figured it can only rightly follow with honoring the journeys of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) friends, colleagues, and students.

Join us on Thursday, May 25th at 12pm CDT for an engaging panel discussing the experiences of our AAPI Trendsetters and Trailblazers, hosted by IES Abroad's very own Marlowe Padilla (IES Abroad Sydney | Spring 2015), and featuring Correspondent of the Year, Avery Trinidad (IES Abroad Berlin | Fall 2021), and more as we celebrate their adventures and the adventure of study abroad.

Note (engagement level): This event will be in Zoom webinar format with time for audience questions at the end of the presentation.



  • Marlowe Padilla, Digital Marketing Coordinator, IES Abroad Sydney | Fall 2015

When: Thursday, May 25, 2023, 12:00 P.M. - 1:00 P.M. CDT
