We thought it'd be fun to ask people when we're out and about what brought them to the area, what brought them to an event, and what keeps them in the region. Let us know what you think using #LocalActive!
Kaciem Swain of Albany
Where are you from?
Born and raised here, by way of Shubuta, Mississippi. My family came up here in the Great Migration from the South.
What brought you here (to the ACE mixer in Troy) tonight?
I like going to anything with the Creative Economy and anything that brings people together to facilitate creativity.
What is your favorite thing about the area?
CDTA is my favorite thing. I don’t drive and I catch the bus everywhere. I like to ride the bus and see what’s going on, community by community.
