Jocelyn Ramiah left Memphis on Monday determined to make "some type of difference in the world." Her destination was Israel, where she is set to begin her Master's degree program at Tel Aviv University.
A recent graduate of Emory University, with a B.A. in Middle Eastern and South Asian studies, Ramiah's year-long concentration in Israel will include soaking up the cultures.
Her ambition and talent were on display recently at a going away party at the home of her mother, Julia Ramiah, who works as a respiratory specialist at a local hospital. Her father, Shaboy Ramiah, is an upscale custom tailor. Amicably divorced, the two dote on their jewel, as did dozens of family and friends at the party that featured a cake made in the shape of Tel Aviv University.
