Cambridge University has a new graduate, who may be familiar to our readers. CMJ’s “Competitive Edge” columnist Jaquelina Jimena of Mendoza, Argentina, earned a scholarship to attend the prestigious university in Cambridge, U.K., last fall for the three-month Wolfson Press Fellowship program (www.WolfsonPress.org). She has now successfully completed her project, which was “Corporate Social Responsibility in Latin America: The Role of the Media in raising awareness of these issues”. Her studies were sponsored by AngloGold Ashanti (www.AngloGoldAshanti.com), Rio Tinto (www.RioTinto.com), Anglo American (www.AngloAmerican.co.uk) and Grupo Minetti (www.GrupoMinetti.com.ar).

She writes: “Ultimately, my sponsors and I intend to do our share of bridging the gap between first class, second class and even third class citizens. In a similar way, we would like our efforts to make a difference for our companies, communities, countries and regions It is not the end but a beginning. Feel free to contact me. I’ll be happy to provide resources for improving your competitiveness.”

We wish Jaquelina every success as she carves a path in new territory. She can be reached at jaquelinajimena@gmail.com.
