A Gainesville native will travel to Kenya this month on a fellowship from Boston University.

Elizabeth Daube, 28, is one of eight recipients of the “Pamoja Together: Student Foreign Aid News Network” project fellowships, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

She leaves April 30 for Kenya, where she will cover critical health and development issues in the country by telling the stories of people who have been impacted by foreign aid.

Daube graduated from P.K. Yonge in 2003 and attended Flagler College in St. Augustine. She received a B.A. in communications in 2005.

At Boston University, she is part of the School of Public Health and has studied social work and global health.

“I'm looking forward to working on a project that uniquely blends those diverse interests and skills,” Daube said in an email. “And it's awesome to be working with a mix of students and professors who are all bringing a lot of energy and talent to this project.”
