Visitors from London - Gloria and Matt Lloyd

We first had the opportunity to meet Gladys Lloyd when she attended Kinondoni Branch while she was in Dar for a several weeks in July working on her Masters Dissertation. She came back this week with her son Matt to finish up a few things with her project and do some volunteer work with some schools.  When Matt was younger he spent about four years working in "Harry Potter" movies 3 & 4. He was a Gryffindor, by the way, and tells a great story about first being assigned to be a Slytherin and explaining to wardrobe that he really needed to be a Gryffindor. "It was like...would you want to be a Nephite or a Lamanite?"  It all worked out in the end, and he was indeed a Nephite...I mean, Gryffindor.  : ) The YSA's were thrilled that he would speak to them and then teach a Physical Acting Class.  Two great souls, Gloria and Matt Lloyd!

Matt now has a successful puppeteer company and has performed for the Queen. His biggest project last year was creating and leading the giant puppet Lion on the final Olympic Parade through London. 
You are LOVED by the Dar YSA's Matt! Thanks so much for coming!
