Georgetta Duncan, known as Juja created an unusual and compelling project for her team game in the world in Landmark’s Team Management Leadership Program: She created “Our America,” her own television program that covered Louisville’s Worldfest, a leading, annual American multicultural festival that celebrates immigrants and the diverse cultures that comprise the United States.

Every year, 1.4 million immigrants come to the United States seeking a better life. Duncan, herself an immigrant from Bulgaria, interviews various festival attendees about the uniqueness of their culture and quotes Louisville officials about the importance of immigrants to the American work force and the American dream.
