Spend a little time with a parachute, and you can become famous. 

Especially if you're the very first person in your country's history to attempt (and succeed) at paragliding.  That is the story of one Godfrey Masauli, the first person to paraglide in the African country of Malawi.  He has converted his success into motivational speeches, TED talks, and a film: The Boy Who Flies.

Godfrey and his film visit Ashland this week; he'll join us in the studio.
