#WhyMigrate? The Guardian Wants Your Stories

This morning I received an email from fellow community manager Maeve Shearlaw of The Guardian’s Global Development beat, which I admire and follow.
The Guardian has been crowdsourcing reasons people migrate on Twitter with the hashtag #WhyMigrate?
In a last push for their #WhyMigrate article, The Guardian is looking for last-minute submissions from the Congolese Diaspora. How has migration affected you and your family? What is life like now? How do you interact with people back home? If you have a good story, please send 400 words to Shearlaw at The Guardian.
The deadline is 12pm GMT tomorrow, January 30.
