International Student Launches Career Networking Site Mapis

Diana Vicezar of Paraguay is heading into her third year at Pitzer College in Claremont, California.

Early in the pandemic, Vicezar could not come to the United States. She spent her first year of college learning by video from the South American country.

During that time, Vicezar said she talked with over 100 international students studying in the U.S. She found out that many experienced difficulties while looking for internships or work. Besides visa restrictions, they said there was a lack of professional development resources at the schools.

Some did not know about the Optional Practical Training program or OPT. It is a U.S. government program that permits international students to stay in the U.S. for one more year after graduation and work in their field of study.

“I have met with many students who didn’t know about OPT or who didn’t know how to write an American-style resume, who didn’t know who to reach out to for help. And they have to go back to their countries because, you know, they didn’t have enough time to work on their applications or do their research because it was too late.”

That is when Vicezar started working on a

Jimmie Johnson earns career-best IndyCar finish after hard

NEWTON, Iowa – Jimmie Johnson has grown accustomed to having “given way” to his teammates but declined to yield Sunday en route to a career-best IndyCar finish – even with a championship at stake.

After battling with Marcus Ericsson tooth and nail for more than 50 laps around Iowa Speedway, Johnson finally nosed ahead of his Chip Ganassi Racing teammate – and the IndyCar points leader – for fifth place.

Though it was “a really special day” for the seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, Johnson said he was motivated to earn his first top five because he felt he should have passed another teammate earlier on the way to a breakthrough podium finish.

NEWGARDEN HOSPITALIZED: Two-time champion held for observation

“I’ve raced my teammates with the most respect that I possibly can,” Johnson told NBC Sports. “Every race I’ve been in, I’ve just given way, and that was really the first time I fought for position, and it was because I felt like I should have been up there passing (Scott Dixon, who finished fourth). I made a mistake and got up in the marbles, and I really felt a podium was in our reach, but today, I had
