Chris Fabian and Erica Kochi, who have been great mentors to me (and many others getting started in the technology for development world) were listed as Time’s “100 most influential people in the world”. The work I did in Kosovo with UNICEF Innovations was directly enabled by these amazing people, so it feels personally incredible that their work has been recognized as such by the wider world.
