Christiana, so wonderful to meet you virtually. Wow, you are doing such amazing work. I look forward to when you share the publications you have to your name, as well as learning more about you. ICT4D is especially interesting to me as it intersects with what we do here at World Pulse. Technology has the power to connect so many people across borders. It is truly an invaluable resource.

Looking forward to further conversations, Corine
