Bodine Student Highlights

Below we highlight the recent accomplishments of Bodine World Affairs Club students. These students have consistently participated in Council education programs and speaker events during their time at Bodine. These students have demonstrated the qualities for successfully completing their studies in global affairs.

Congratulations to Raquel Padin, a Bodine senior, on her acceptance to the University of Hawaii, where she will major in Korean. Raquel loves all things South Korea and in the past year has taught herself how to read the Korean alphabet. Raquel has also been learning Chinese during after-school lessons with Bodine's Teachers of Critical Languages Program Mandarin teacher, Ms. Feili Zou. 

A World Affairs Council speaker program regular, Bodine junior Raheim Al-Kaabah is this year's annual Shakespeare Festival winner! Raheim took first place on February 8 with his powerful performance of a soliloquy from Julius Caesar. Raheim will go on to compete in the citywide Shakespeare Festival competition this March.

The Council congratulates Bodine junior Andy Chen on being awarded the Good Citizenship Award from the Youth Work Foundation at the Union League. The nomination for this process is highly selective. Andy truly fits the criteria of being a "Good Citizen" as he fills his time doing service projects, participating in a wide array of extracurricular activities, and focusing on his studies as a highly successful student.
