My name is August Czeschin; I am a History M.A. student focusing on 20th-century Chinese-American relations. Additionally, I am enrolled in the Department of Religion’s Islamic Studies program. Before GW, I graduated from the University of Missouri with a B.S. in Education and worked as a high school social studies teacher. As a result of my time as a teacher, I also have a deep interest in the way history is presented to the public, what is highlighted and omitted.
