51: Christine Nguyen & Mary Kate Charles (Creative Collaborations)

On this episode, Rob chats with another pair of Washington University in St. Louis students who have received a Creative Collaborations grant for a project related to writing and crafting a children’s book that will help multicultural families explain the cancer diagnosis of a loved one to a child. The students are Beyond Boundaries Program student Christine Nguyen and Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts student athlete and Ghostlights cast member Mary Kate Charles. We chat about how they met in the Catholic Student Center (CSC), study in the Interdisciplinary Project in the Humanities, and the non-profit that Christine founded called Limitless Foundation dedicated to providing support for cancer patients and treatment centers. We also talk about Mary Kate’s art and Christine’s magical cheap-flight algorithm which has made her a world traveler in recent years. She documents her journeys in her travel blog Sightseeing with Stine. A terrific episode featuring two extraordinary students. Check it out!
