"I joined the Fletcher GMAP program for multiple reasons. I needed a more solid grounding in politics. I wanted to do more analytical writing on Africa’s issues and challenges, and I felt that sometimes one needs to take a step back and look at the key issues and challenges from a theoretical point of view, so as to be better able to formulate good analyses.

I also must admit that I applied to GMAP to fulfill the deep and abiding desire to challenge myself in an academic program of its stature. The knowledge and skills I gained during the program
will be vital and crucial to my career."
