My name is Chantal Mosley and I am currently a senior Business Administration major at UNC. Through the business program, I had the distinct opportunity to go abroad and be immersed in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa. During this two-week immersion, we learned about African business, their economy structure, and participated in cultural activities to become familiar with this new country. This was my first international experience and it has truly sparked my desire for future international travel.

Hi I'm Danielle Giovenco! I am a doctoral student studying infectious disease epidemiology at UNC Chapel Hill. I began working on an HIV prevention research project based in South Africa during my master’s training, but didn’t have the opportunity to travel. Since coming to UNC, I have become involved with several additional research projects in South Africa and was able to spend the summer there visiting multiple research sites, networking with local researchers, and experiencing the culture. With the predissertation exploration award, I visited the rural South African province of Mpumalanga, Johannesburg, and Cape Town.

Kate Clouse also contributed many of the items to this Culture Kit. Currently, she is a PhD student at UNC’s Department of Epidemiology, which is within the Gillings School of Global Public Health. Epidemiologists study trends of disease and other health outcomes among populations of people, and she specializes in HIV research in South Africa. During the summer of 2010, with generous support from UNC’s Center for Global Initiatives, she visited South Africa to conduct research prior to her dissertation. She was based in Johannesburg, which is South Africa’s largest city, and one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities on the entire African continent. She is happy to share some current cultural artifacts from modern-day South Africa!
