  2. I had never heard about this magazine before, but Noeline Zawadi mentioned it to me. I love the diversity of the team! Do you guys have get togethers? It would be awesome if you did and rotated them in your respective countries/cities.

    • Some have met in individual countries. It would be even better if we all did at some point in the future. Hopefully we will. Thanks for the show of support.
