Who We Are

 The Network

Global21 is a network of student-run international-affairs magazines at premier universities around the world. The organization was jumpstarted in 2005 with a $50,000 grant from the Yale Entrepreneurial Society. Global21 is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit with chapters at twenty universities around the world including Yale University, University of Oxford, University of Cape Town, Peking University, University of Sydney, the London School of Economics and Political Science, the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, Singapore Management University, and University of Zurich among others.

Global21’s network is a practical tool for creating dialogue that promotes greater international cooperation and understanding among university students around the world. Through article exchanges, joint issues, an international blog, and continental conferences, Global21 helps high-achieving students hone the skills necessary to excel in fields of journalism, business, non-profit, and government work, with the hope that they will graduate from their university with the drive and ability to tackle global issues themselves.

Global21 creates a number of forums for international student dialogue including annual continental conferences, joint issues, article exchanges, and our blog, The Perspectivist, which compiles articles from across the network.

The Global21 Board

Kay Teo, Davenport College ’16 Executive DirectorKay Teo is a sophomore concentrating in Neuroscience in the Psychology department. Her other academic interests include global health and international development. Although a city girl at heart — having grown up in Tokyo and Singapore — she loves to go rock climbing and hiking. She also has a passion for food, which led her to start Yale’s first student-run pop-up restaurant on campus this past year. Kay is greatly looking forward to serving as Executive Director of Global 21 for the 2013 school year and to welcoming you to a (hopefully!) memorable conference.

Omegar Chavolla-Zacarias, Branford College ’16 Executive Director

Lucia Chen, Pierson College ’16Director of Finance and Liaison ChairLuciaLucia is an aspiring novelist, a perspiring runner, a hopeful cognitive science major, and a hopeless dreamer. Hailing from the humble state of Michigan, she has visited a grand total of three countries — but hopes to metaphorically visit many more with Global21. Lucia is passionate about a great many things, from social enterprise to martial arts, but harbors a strong distaste for mushrooms and manchester City fans. She is looking forward to welcoming you with good food and bright smiles to all of Global21′s events this year.

Nothing can excite Vincent more than a hearty meal and a cup of black coffee.

  15. I don’t drop many remarks, however after browsing a few of the comments on About | Global21. I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay. Is it simply me or does it seem like some of the remarks appear as if they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at other sites, I’d like to follow you. Would you post a list of every one of your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
