Last spring, my daughter Claudia Rose Watkins was the team leader of the winning team of international students who competed against 1,031 other cross-cultural teams worldwide in creating a market entry strategy for a firm in Germany.  The 1,032 teams in the competition were comprised of 4,972 students from 152 universities in 37 countries on 6 continents.  


Today, Claudia was notified that her team won “The 2018-1 X-Culture Best Team” award.


Because Claudia was the team leader, she has been invited to speak at the 2019 X-Culture Global Symposium in Canada. Claudia also received a glowing recommendation letter speaking to her ability to manage an award-winning cross-cultural team.  She will be interviewed on live TV next year as part of the 2019 X-Cultural Global Symposium program.


Claudia completed a course of study in business and finance this summer at the London School of Economics and Political Science.  She studied economics at John Cabot University in Rome, Italy during the summer of 2017.


She will graduate from The University of Alabama in December with a degree in Marketing and Economics and a specialization and certification in global business.


Claudia is the second Watkins family member who has studied abroad this summer.  My grandson Levi Seth Watkins, who was the Second Place Winner last November at the Jiansu Cup Chinese Speech Contest at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, won a full scholarship for four-week course of study this summer at Nanjing Forestry University in Jiansu Province, China.  Seth, who translates many of my international business documents that are written in Mandarin, has been speaking and writing Mandarin for several years.  Seth is the second son of Dustin Watkins and Quan Watkins.


Congratulations, Claudia! This is a huge win for your X-Culture team and the Watkins family.


Educational excellence always matters!
