Regular guest: Mallory Willits Gakpo

Mallory Willits Gakpo is a student at the Indiana University School of Social Work who is currently pursing her master's degree. Mallory has spent the past two years as a Beginning Social Worker at Fairbanks Substance Abuse Hospital and Adult and Child Mental Health Center. Mallory chose her journey in social work due to her natural ability to talk to people therapeutically and her love for helping others. She thoroughly believes in the power of traveling and lives by the saying, "Jobs fill your pocket, but adventures fill your soul." She has traveled quite a bit of the world, which gave her the opportunity to go to Ghana, where she met her husband, Wisdom.

Ep. 47 - Mallory Willits [II]


Hello and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess.
On this, our 47th episode, our returning guest is Mallory Willits.
You first heard from Mallory Willits on Episode 7 of the podcast. If you haven’t heard that episode, you should probably go back and listen to it before starting this one.
This is going to be a bit different from any previous episode of the podcast. Jan. 20, Mallory left for a 10-day visit to Ghana, where her husband, Wisdom lives. During her visit, Wisdom had his meeting at the American embassy to see if his visa would be approved so he could come to America.
Before Mallory left, I asked her to record some of her thoughts and feelings during her trip using the Voice Memo app on her iPhone. What you’re about to hear is a collage of the sound clips she sent me which include diary entries, ambient noises and found music.
I want to congratulate Mallory and Wisdom on their successful visa application. I understand Wisdom is on the way to America as we speak. I wish you both a long and happy life together.
