Having finished editing my conversation with Ugandan ophthalmologist Gladys Atto, I had just one task left: finding the right title for the piece. These titles sometimes come to me naturally when I listen back to interview recordings, but this time I was struggling to find the right words to convey the importance of the work Atto is doing in her corner of the world. As one of only 45 ophthalmologists in her country, she is obviously unique in what she does, but I wanted to check how unique exactly, so I googled the population of Uganda. Search result: just over 45 million. She is quite literally… One in a Million. I hope you enjoy reading this piece as much as I enjoyed preparing it for you!

Until next time, Aleksandra Jones, Editor
