Karen Awura-Adjoa Ronke Coker, a public health doctoral student in the One Health concentration at the University of Florida College of Public Health and Health Professions, was interviewed for the Go Global ED Podcast, which is produced by the U.S. Department of Education’s International and Foreign Language Education office. The podcast features conversations with International and Foreign Language Education staff and Fulbright-Hays and Title VI grant and fellowship recipients to highlight their experiences, discuss issues in international and foreign language education, share advice on the application process, and offer their reflections about the long-term value and impact of IFLE programs.

A two-time recipient of a Title VI Foreign Language and Area Studies fellowship, Coker studied Wolof, the native language of Senegal, for two years. In her podcast interview, she shares her experiences, the value of speaking the language of communities in which you wish to engage, and tips and encouragement for others seeking language training in less commonly taught languages.
