GUH Graduate Tonika Sealy-Thompson Appointed Barbados Ambassador to Brazil
Performance Studies graduate Tonika Sealy-Thompson was recently appointed to serve her home country of Barbados as ambassador to Brazil. Sealy-Thompson says her graduate studies in Performance Studies and the Global Urban Humanities Certificate at UC Berkeley were important contributors to her new diplomatic role:
“People at Berkeley deal with our global condition in so many different ways. There are indigenous issues, border issues, immigration issues. All those things were part of my education here. It remains the greatest public university in the world for these very reasons.”
