DENTON — Texas Woman's University will become a melting pot of cultures on Nov. 7 during the 25th Annual International Festival. Admission to the festival, which is open to the public, is $7 for adults, $5 for students and $3 for children under 12.

The festival will take place from 5:30-9 p.m. in Hubbard Hall and will include dinner with an international flavor, folk dance performances, an ethnic fashion parade, cultural exhibits and a lecture by Sugar Land attorney Dr. Praveena Singh-Kaw. Tickets are available in advance from the Office of International Education, located on the second floor of Jones Hall, or at the door. For ticket information, call (940) 898-3338.

Dr. Singh-Kaw is a native of South Africa and a United States citizen. She earned a bachelor’s of science, master’s and doctoral degrees in biochemistry from the State University of New York at Buffalo. In addition, she earned an MBA from the University of Toronto, Canada and a J.D. from the College of Law at the University of Toledo, Ohio.

Before she became a lawyer, Dr. Singh-Kaw worked as a cancer research scientist. As an attorney, she was employed as in-house counsel at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, as an associate at one of the largest law firms in Michigan and worked with an immigration attorney in Houston before starting her own firm.

Dr. Singh-Kaw will discuss “Life as an International Student” following the dinner. She first visited the U.S. at age 16 as an exchange student under the American Field Service. She will recount her experiences as an international student and discuss some of the challenges facing today’s exchange students.
