2018 Women PeaceMakers Spotlight: Roxana Cristescu, Eurasia

Saturday, October 20, 2018

The University of San Diego is hosting four outstanding females from around the world to share their knowledge and to be present. In 2018, the 16th year of the Women PeaceMakers Program, the cohort consists of: Rosa Emilia Salamanca of Colombia, Roxana Cristescu of Eurasia, Amira Abdulrahman Hussein Timan from Sudan and Mariam Yazdani of Pakistan. They are part of a program that shines an important global spotlight on women leadership, a Changemaker spirit and how they can help to inspire female leaders-in-training. The women are at USD through Nov. 17. While they are here, they’ll be working on the issue of ensuring women have a seat of power at the peace negotiation table. The USD News Center has been spotlighting the four PeaceMakers this week to learn a little more about their backstory and to know about upcoming on-campus events featuring this impressive cohort.
