When Dominique DaCruz moved our family to Detroit from the East Coast, I thought he was derailing my dreams of diplomacy.
But when I found out about Global Ties Detroit, all my work as a tech entrepreneur (and more recently food entrepreneur) fostering economic development in the U.S. and Africa started to make sense.
Congratulations Global Ties Detroit on celebrating 50 years of global diplomacy in Detroit. What a great pleasure to serve as a fellowship mentor over the last few years and the emencee last night.
I hope I made you as proud as you have made me Marian Reich, and both the staff and board at GTD.
