Humphrey Fellow Nampoiniaina Rabenasolo spoke with 5th-8th grade students at Wellwood Middle School in the Fayetteville-Manlius School District in December.  His talk focused on perceptions people have based on media coverage and how society I impacted by the media .  One student wondered how much information people in Madagascar hear about what is happening in the U.S. and was surprised to learn that the majority of information about America emanates from Hollywood films.  Nampoina also talked about student life in his native Madagascar, the limited number of television channels and the fact that the internet is not nearly as pervasive and is non-existent in schools.   The talk was organized by Wellwood 8th grade social studies teacher Joann Harrod and the school store student organizers.
