Welcome to Part 2 of our National Geography Awareness Week Story Series in partnership with the National Geographic Society! We're celebrating this special week by highlighting five innovative young professionals and students who are blazing their own paths in geography. We'll post a new interview every day this week, so check back often. On Friday, we'll bring all of our new friends together in a virtual panel discussion.
