For a computer scientist like me, the most striking technical aspect in Mali is the extensive use of the radio frequency spectrum as the main support for communication. This is visible in the number of local and regional radio stations and the size of their audiences, the fierce competition between the historical mobile telephone operator and the new private operator, and the number of Internet Service Providers sharing their satellite connections to broadband subscribers via radio local loops and microwave links.

I am a motivated and enthusiastic individual with a passion for language, culture and translation. I have recently graduated from a four-year degree in French and Spanish at the University of Kent, including a year abroad studying at the Universities of Avignon, France and Cordoba, Spain. I have previously volunteered for several non-profit organizations, including El Centro de la NiÃ±a Trabajadora in Ecuador, South America where I helped to teach and organize activities for disadvantaged children on a street outreach project. In my spare time, I enjoy taking part in dance, drama and music productions, many in aid of local charities such as Breast Cancer Awareness. I am hoping to study an MA in Translation in September and so I aspire to find future volunteer positions where I can gain translation experience or utilize my language skills, take on new challenges, meet new people and contribute to the invaluable and inspiring work of non-profit organizations.
