In celebration of World Poetry Day on March 21, 2017, more than 50 students gathered to witness a poetry contest hosted by the Peace Corps at Auburn, the International Buddy Program, and Auburn Global. Ten students competed with an array of original and famous poems. Auburn Global student and avid poet, Nelson Muthanji, served as the host during the event and was awarded first place for his original poem titled 'Time'.

Nelson not only enjoys writing poems as his creative outlet, he also loves documenting his experiences through photography. See Auburn through Nelson's lens in this slideshow of his photos.
