Welcome to our latest new member feature which draws inspiration from Sesame Street. (Who doesn’t love the Count?)
We’ve all heard the excuse “I’m too busy” so we’ve simplified our feature to illicit short, meaningful responses. As a side note, ELGL is adamantly opposed to the excuse, “I’m too busy.”
Robbie Lippard is first up. He’s a MPA student at George Washington University and is committed to building ELGL’s presence in DC.
