I’m not one for industry hot air blowing and bro-butt-slapping (which tech has a lot of) but it’s something special when the work you do makes you feel something deeply. I am so proud to have had Facebook’s Founder Mark Zuckerberg highlight Girl Effect Mobile today with a touching video about the impact Internet.org has had in Africa. It was also how Facebook chose to launch its global incubator for Free Basics project (which is also coincidentally being lead by the amazing South Africa team at my employer Praekelt Foundation).
The moral of this story though is that when your work gives you warm, fuzzy and inspired feelings you know you’re on to something good, and the Girl Effect has been that and so much more to date. #Grateful to get paid to do what I love AND be able to do my bit to change the world in the process.
