In Episode 9 in the Archive, we “met” Jocelyne Sambira, a Burundian journalist who was working at U.N. Radio in New York at the time. Why did we put “met” in quotations? Because even though we interviewed Jocelyne and had a very engaging conversation about her life in New York, we never actually met her in person. Jeff conducted their interview over the internet from Burundi while Jocelyne was in New York so they were never in the same place! Well, now that Jeff is living in New York, he was finally able to meet Jocelyne, and they had a wonderful time talking about the Burundi that each of them saw. Here they are, over cups of Rwandan coffee (sorry, they didn’t have Burundian coffee!).
Jocelyne is still working for the United Nations, and she and her colleagues are putting out a magazine called “Africa Renewal,” which looks at some of the positive socio-economic developments happening in African countries. Have a look!
