ICANN Involvement

Matilda is a second time ICANN fellow and an alumni!

Her first was ICANN 49 in Singapore after which she was completely left in awe of how big and diverse ICANN's functions were. Although she is still learning from the Internet Space and ICANN community, she is more vocal now than before about benefits and usage of Internet and use every chance at work to promote it. During International Girls in ICT Day, she introduced ICANN and its functions to young females and had amazing responses. Surprisingly Internet was entirely new to many of them. She sees a need in my country for more such events to expose One Global Internet and ICANN’s work. She now has the support to promote ICT and the Internet to their young population.

ICANN 57 Hyderabad was her second meeting. She attended the meeting with ccNSO in mind and looked forward to personally understanding the functions and learning how .pg fits into ICANN although it is already a member of ccNSO.
