Nicole Bansen Nicole Bansen, 
Junior

Nicole’s passion for international affairs drove her towards this exciting journalism expedition in the remote region of Turkana, Kenya. On this trip into the arid desert of Kenya, she learned that when working with a translator, reading body language is just as crucial as listening to someone when they speak — and that camel spiders are terrifying.
Nicole enjoys learning about different cultures. She can speak three languages and is considering making Turkana the fourth. One day she hopes to work for Al Jazeera or the BBC, but most of all she just wants to make a difference in the world.
