Our project team had a great time helping welcome Liberian President and Nobel laureate Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to our hometown. Azilia’s Matt McDaniel had the honor of introducing her when she spoke at Midtown Medical Center. President Sirleaf repeatedly spoke to Columbus’s and Liberia’s past and present associations in several speaking engagements around town, associations our first film will explore. Beyond great to have such a notable supporter and fan!
