Nominee statement

I'm honored to be nominated for the APNIC EC election. I believe that my long-time experience and multicultural and multi-market knowledge will be very valuable to APNIC as an organization and community.

I am the co-founder and director of LARUS Foundation, where we promote internet education to ensure that the next generation has extensive knowledge of the Internet and how it works.

Since its conception and until today, LARUS Foundation has educated and sponsored thousands of students in developing countries, helping them learn more about the Internet and attending international conferences.

I understand the needs of educating the next generation about the Internet, and I believe that having new blood is essential for the growth and sustainability of this industry, and Internet governance.

As a member of the Advisory Council of Pacific Telecommunications Council, I have hand-on experience with internet development over the world, in both developing and developed countries, especially in the Asia Pacific region.

Beside my long years working in the NGO field, I have worked with a number of universities in the APAC region, launched numerous workshops, seminars, internship to promote Internet governance education in the region, and also partnered with universities to cultivate the next generation about the field.

I fully understand the importance of the work of NGO, and how it can be effectively connected to internet development in the area. I believe in an internet that is free and accessible for all people, including those in developing countries that are not doing economically well.

By being the EC of APNIC, I will leverage my experience in the NGO field and internet development and contribute with the community members into creating a better internet in the region.
