Beyond the Yellow Border 

Checking out that yellow borderBy Dean’s Intern Jana Kleemeier at National Geographic

Hi! My name is Jana Kleemeier and I’m a senior majoring in PR & Strategic Communications and minoring in Marketing. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to share my experiences adventuring with the National Geographic Channels.
