Amy Hunt received her Masters in African Studies as a Foreign Language and Area Studies fellowship recipient in Wolof at the University of Kansas, and a Bachelors in History from Juniata College. While at Juniata, she studied abroad in The Gambia and Australia. Her academic research examined the anti-apartheid movement and media in South Africa in the 1950s, and transitional justice measures such as the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions in South Africa and Sierra Leone at the turn of the century. Her current interests include innovations in cell phone technology across public, private, and health sectors, and the role pop culture can play in bridging cultural and linguistic divides.
