She was a born leader; she would take control of the IG (Internet Governance) association which was essentially a cornerstone of Social Science Research in Berlin. During the years of 1995-2000, Dr. Hoffman (As she earned her Doctorate) would work on a project called the “The Internet Cultural Area” going into in-depth details of the Internet and how it has effected our cultural as a whole since it was brought into existence and how it has changed over the years and how it will continue to change as the years go on, paving way for even more ideas to come.
