There is a common thread from which most human connections are formed. They are the life experiences that make us who we are. We reflect on them. We share them. We listen to them told as stories, looking for how our narratives might fold into another’s. But what if those ever-personal experiences, our very stories were erased from memory?

Monika Ammerman has always wanted to make the world a better place. As a teen, she participated in her high school’s Model U.N. program and organized field days for underprivileged teens and formal proms for kids with special-needs through the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy. At the University of Georgia, she joined an orientation team that welcomes students from all over the world and helps them navigate a vast social and academic network. Now, as one of only two American students chosen to take part in a unique United Nations program, Ammerman will help achieve an ambitious U.N. agenda: to eradicate poverty by 2030.
Furthering its commitment to join other businesses and organizations in the movement to reinvest in Atlanta’s Westside neighborhood, Chick-fil-A today unveiled plans to open a new restaurant in Vine City.
