        Hello Joshua, Thanks for your response, I am excited about the opportunity to join your team. I have an interest in South Africa and Mocambique. I have not traveled to those countries but am well read on their histories and cultures. What type of articles are you looking for? Maybe I could send you a sample article. Look forward to your reply. Sincerely, Mike Grigas
