In 2008, Liz Bohannon graduated from the University of Missouri with a Master’s degree in Journalism and moved to Uganda to assist in the communications efforts for a youth development organization based in Kampala. While there, Liz met an incredible group of talented young women who were struggling to finance their education. We are thrilled that Liz has joined the GLS faculty to share her journey in entrepreneurship.
