Hello, World!

Hello, World!

Hello World, my name is Nathaniel Kim! I’m an incoming graduate student at Georgetown University’s Master of Science in Foreign Service program and a new project assistant here at NDItech.

For the past few years, I’ve been studying Arabic in Cairo and working with refugees from all around the Middle East and Africa. In Egypt, I was able to see how the proliferation of internet access, smartphones, and cloud-based applications empowered refugees and Egyptians alike to organize, pool resources, and tell the world what they see on a daily basis.

I’m interested in how technological innovations can help ordinary citizens monitor elections and document human rights violations to ensure accountability and good governance. I’m very excited to see the work that NDItech is doing and even more excited to be a part of it.

This is my first week and I’m extremely impressed with my team and the organization as a whole, and I can’t wait to get my hands on some of the cool apps and tools that NDItech is developing. Stay tuned for updates!
