"My World" Tours

We are bringing "My World" (virtual) tours back for International Education Week!

During the quarantined spring of 2020, we traveled with "My World" (virtual) tours to 16 countries on 6 continents (with almost 500 participants attending with us from Rice, as well as friends and families from various countries around the world). In celebration of International Education Week 2020 and 2021, "My World" tours returned for IEW special editions, and we got to enjoy wonderful additional tours! We heard amazing stories, and saw so much of the beauty of our world through Rice international students’ and scholars’ presentations and perspectives. The virtual My World trips were fascinating, educational, inspirational, heart-felt, relaxing and often made us hungry with all the great foods. The questions and discussions are so fun, and made us laugh and think – all at the same time. Thank you, thank you for the tours!

Now in celebration of International Education Week "My World" tours are back!

Testimonial from a presenter:

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to give a presentation about my home country! I love making presentations, and even more so when it’s about the country I grew up in. For me this presentation was definitely the highlight of the quarantine and I’m really glad the audience enjoyed it as well. – Yuseon Kim, South Korea
