[Episcopal News Service — Chicago] Gutti Kanjam was taken from his birthplace in the Nuba Mountains as a boy and forced to live in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan. He later lived as a refugee in Lebanon before being resettled in the United States. He is now studying government and international politics at George Mason University in Washington, D.C. And he advocates for Nuban youth. Culturally aligned with South Sudan, the Nuba Mountain region belongs to Sudan.
