Travel Talk: India: Beyond Yoga, Taj and Curry
As an Indian immigrant living in the US, Syed Jamal will share some of his local, lived-experiences in India and how America continues to shape those experiences. He will speak about collective and individualistic cultures that separate two countries - India and USA. With the use of pictures and videos, this interactive session would focus on storytelling to introduce a "local India" that our audience may not know. This Travel Talk will take place on May 15 at 7:00 p.m. at Annie Wright Schools. All Travel Talks are free and open to the public - no RSVP is necessary. Syed K Jamal is the Founder and CEO of Branta which focuses on internationalization of experiences and institutions. He leads the firm's focus on innovation, partnerships, and client impact. His professional experience includes work in the diverse areas of media, academia, and international education. He first came to the US as an International Ford Foundation Fellow, so he brings his own experience as an international student into his vision for Branta. His interest in cross-cultural collaborations and global citizenry continue to shape his professional pursuits. In 2010, Syed took a communications position at India's Fulbright Commission for the U.S. Department of State's public diplomacy program, EducationUSA. In his role as Communications Manager, Syed spearheaded EducationUSA's digital outreach and partnerships. He led several recruitment programs, public diplomacy outreach with US Foreign Service Officers, and many workshops. After EducationUSA, Syed began consulting for a variety of youth and higher education organizations both in India and in the US. In 2015, he moved to the US and founded Branta, which works with universities, colleges, startups, and recruitment organizations in the US and Canada, as well as youth-focused organizations in India.
