“ I find co-workers usually come to me with questions or concerns even when I’m not in a leadership role because if I don’t know the answer, I’ll at least point them in the right direction. In my last two roles, I was promoted to leadership positions. #KalifahForUMA #VicePresident,” Khalifa Aganaga posted.
