Susan Albrecht "is the Executive Director of the Alfred Friendly Press Fellowships (AFPF)—a cultural and professional exchange program that trains professional print journalists from developing countries by placing them in American newsrooms as reporters for six months. Fellows not only return home with new journalistic skills and knowledge, and a desire to advance a free, responsible press in their own countries but also a greater understanding of America and Americans.

"Before becoming director in 2000, Albrecht was the AFPF program manager from 1996-1999. From January to May of 1996, she spent five months in Germany studying German in Heidelberg and working at the international student office of the University of Stuttgart. She was sponsored by the Ministry for Science and Technology of the state of Baden-Wurtenberg.

"From 1993-95, Susan worked at NAFSA: Association of International Educators — a non-profit organization that promotes the exchange of students and scholars to and from the United States. At NAFSA, she worked on the ASPIRE program which focused on the professional and personal reentry of Asian students returning home after acquiring their American university degrees. During college, Susan had internships with AFS and Youth for Understanding (two youth exchange programs) and the Institute of International Education (New York, Washington, and Budapest). She graduated in 1993 from The American University with a B.A. in International Studies having spent her junior year abroad in Budapest and Brussels." [1]
