focusing on cultural differences, team leadership development and
the power of youth.

Atlanta, such as CNN, the Georgia World Congress Center, Georgia
Aquarium, Savannah College of Art & Design, The Jimmy Carter
Presidential Library, and the birthplace and home church of Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr.
