PACP and Yeah were excited to welcome 2 new interns who have come to Mali so that they can be part of this awesome journey to Koulouba. ( Malian Presidential Palace). I am sure they will add wonderful insight in exchange for a wonderful experience with the warm, wonderful Malian people. Welcome Liz Jessop and Kyle Rehn!
Liz is an exception young lady who in my humble opinion has experienced much. She is pursuing a BA in International Studies, BS in Political Science and a minor in French at University of Utah. I told you she is exceptional. She had just returned from her last internship in India and is excited to represent Yeah in the race for the Presidency. I am excited to work with her as we work towards winning this election. She is fast picking up Bambara. Check out Liz’s journey in her own blog here
Kyle is a wonderful young man with a wonderful sense of humour. He is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s of science degree in economics and a minor in business at University of Utah. I am excited to work with Kyle as he provides me with a onsite view of rallies and what we can do to make them better. Like Liz, he too is working hard to learn Bambara in addition to French. He is also easy to tease so it provides some good humor at someone else’s expense. 🙂
What can I say. They have only been here a few days and are doing awesome. I can promise the moms of Kyle and Liz that I will take excellent care of them. You have raised some good, solid kids. I am extremely excited for all the possibilities to come. Thank you Kyle and Liz for sacrificing much to be part of this journey! Thank you Courtney at the Hinckley Institute and Cameron Diehl for arranging this wonderful opportunity.
