Five hours after his University of Iowa graduation ceremony in May 2018, Jeremy Marks was on a plane to China.

Before heading to graduate school this past fall, Marks took every opportunity he could to see the world, he said. He enrolled in a two-week course called Business and Culture in China directly after graduation.

Searching for more, he opted to do an International Education of Students  internship in Cape Town, South Africa, immediately following the conclusion of the course in China. His cultural experiences paved the way to becoming a 2018 the group’s Global Citizen of the Year Award finalist.
