Greetings Glocal Citizens!
I had a great time with my guest this week who joined me for my last interview from Accra for the year. We met via another stamped and sealed Glocal Citizen Asare Adjei [Glocal Citizens - Asare Adjei] and what a pleasure is was meeting this trailblazer!

She has hosted cultural events and facilitates dialogue on conflict resolution, antiracist/race relations and peacebuilding. She is also a mediator and teaches mediation, conflict coaching, restorative justice and conflict transformation.
Nyamal is the co-founder and Executive Director of the NyaEden Foundation, an Adjunct Professor at Arcadia University and Director of Equity and Inclusion for CORA Services, a Nonprofit in Pennsylvania.

A hallmark of Nyamal's technical approach is humor which she shared generously--we had great fun and many laughs during the interview. You're invited to laugh along as we journey with Nyamal for her native lands to the US!
