Welcome Nichole :)
On Wednesday 26 October 2016, Tighe Flanagan <tflanagan(a)wikimedia.org>
I'm excited to announce the newest addition to the education team here at
the Foundation, Nichole Saad. Nichole started last week, and going forward
will be the team's main point of contact for the Asia region as well as
managing our team's communications work.
Here's a snippet about Nichole
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:NSaad_(WMF)> in her own words:
Hello! I'm excited to meet you all! As an educator, I'm thrilled to be
part of the Wikimedia Foundation, whose work has
contributed to improving
access to knowledge worldwide. My own work is fueled by the theory that
improving the access to and quality of education globally is the key to a
more prosperous and peaceful world, and I'm eager to begin work as the new
Program Manager on the Education Team!
Before joining the Wikimedia Foundation, I worked as an education
professional in seven countries in diverse roles. Most recently I was based
in Jordan as an Associate Project Officer with UNESCO, working on the
educational response to the Syrian refugee crisis. Throughout these
experiences I’ve been very interested in how innovative technological
solutions can be used to provide quality education to the most
marginalized, and can’t wait to explore this further here!
Please join me in welcoming Nichole to the foundation. Feel free to reach
out here, directly over email (nsaad(a)wikimedia.org
