My name is Sashae Mitchell, a Jamaican student presently pursuing a Master’s in International Educational Development at the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education. I am interested in examining how post-colonial societies, particularly those in the Caribbean, find innovative ways to finance their education systems given the lack of financial resources. Additionally, I would like to continue exploring educational policies around teacher education and retention in the developing world. I am also passionate about youth empowerment, advocating and amplifying the voices of those most marginalized in the education sector.

As part of my program, I will be spending three months (June-August) in South Africa interning with an educational research organization. I will be working at the Johannesburg and Cape Town offices where I will contribute to various projects

This blog will help me process my experiences in South Africa as I work to refine and even expand my interests in international education. Please join me on this adventure and let’s explore and learn about Johannesburg and Cape Town together!
