Mills, a 2011 Linfield College graduate, will discuss her experiences in Afghanistan where she spent a month teaching debate methods to students. She will also address what it was like to be a woman in Afghanistan and the stereotypes and misconceptions about the country.
Mills earned a degree in creative writing and business. During her years at Linfield, she was involved in the debate team, the Ultimate Friends Team, the Chaplain’s Team and the Linfield Activities Board. She currently works for Friends of Pimpollo, an Oregon-based nonprofit organization and plans to return to Afghanistan next year.
The event is sponsored by the International Programs Office and is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Michele Tomseth at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-883-2434.
