Turning Their Tassels: Joel Jassu

Joel Jassu was born in Banda, Uganda, which was becoming one of the worst slums of the capital city of Kampala during Joel’s childhood. A chance encounter with an American architect visiting the country on a mission trip set him on a course to earning a master's degree in architecture at Georgia Tech.

“It’s a story I don’t think is my own story, I think it’s a story that is shared by so many champions that have come along the way.”
