Army Veteran, Founder of THE ASK & TELL PROJECT

Alisha Guffey is a 14-year Veteran of the U.S. Army and a recent fellow with the U.S. State Department with the Secretary's Office of Global Partnerships. In May 2016, she completed her Master of International Business Degree at The Fletcher School at Tufts University in Massachusetts. During her tenure at Fletcher, Alisha pursued her passion for creativity through a mentorship with the Writers Guild of America and ultimately started her own production company called Combat Camera Productions, which is devoted to discussing conflict by sharing real stories and first-person narratives. While at the Fletcher School, Alisha began exploring the role that entrepreneurship, media, and communications can play in social change. This lead to the founding of THE ASK & TELL PROJECT that is dedicated to promoting a more inclusive culture within the U.S. Military by sharing the untold stories of LGBTQ veterans and servicemembers in the light of the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell.
