I graduated from Emory in May 2017 and worked at The Carter Center until October 2017. I moved to The Gambia in West Africa to join Peace Corps immediately afterwards and have sorely been missing ATL ever since. Listening to this podcast makes me feel connected to a place that I consider a second home. It makes me excited to eventually move back there and become involved in the civic issues that underlie every day life in one of my favorite cities in the world. Thanks for doing this important work and sharing these issues!
What’s Next ATL hits the mark!
