Kelly S.

United Kingdom

Summary

I have just completed an MSc degree in International Development at the University of Edinburgh. I wrote my dissertation on the topic of labor standards for digital workers in developing countries. For my dissertation, I carried out research in Kampala, Uganda as part of a work-based placement in partnership with Kiteka, the "first all-female, all-mobile digital outsourcing network." I am particularly interested in women's issues, entrepreneurship, and the role of technology and the private sector in economic development. I am excited to be continuing my work with Kiteka as an intern over the next few months. Previously, I have worked in several different fields, gaining valuable professional work experience. These include staffing and recruiting, administrative and financial support, and various internships in legal services, local and federal government, and media production. I decided to change career paths to pursue a field I have always been passionate about, however, and made the decision to obtain an MSc degree. I studied Political Science and Communications Studies as an undergraduate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I graduated Honors Laureate with a 3.92 GPA and as a member of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.
