When I was in Dubai I received an email with this in the subject line: Dean Mancini Are You in Dubai? Milen Habte Tesfamariam, who graduated from Haverford College in 2008 said, “My mom and I thought we saw you at the Mall. If you are in Dubai, we would love for you to have dinner with us.”
There are almost 3 million people in Dubai and almost as many malls. What are the chances? I had the most wonderful evening — great food, incredible coffee made the traditional way ( and the best coffee I have ever had!)
Donna Mancini is Dean of International Academic Programs and Associate Dean of the College.
