Episode 05: An Unexpected Trip to Africa


Freelance Producer

On this episode, I sit down with Shelby, a liberal arts student studying Journalism and Media Communications at Colorado State. Shelby had the opportunity as an undergraduate student to travel abroad to Rwanda and Uganda to document the collaborative work being done by CSU’s Energy Institute and Xpower to provide microgrid technology and energy access across these countries. As a member of CSU’s media team, Shelby was able to see first hand how CSU’s microgrid technology impacted the civilians of these foreign countries. On the show we will be talking about Shelby’s trip to Africa, her experience with the culture, the people, and the microgrid project aimed at providing electricity and power to thousands.
