How did you discover CCT?
I googled volunteer opportunities and a volunteer I knew from Tech Goes Home mentioned it.

Describe your CCT experience:
Great :) It’s the opportunity to do something outside of my regular life/work and apply my skills and knowledge to helping out. It’s also fun because you are working with likeminded people focused on the same goals.

What does CCT offer that all the other activities which vie for your limited free time do not?
It offers project-based volunteering that gives me an opportunity to learn about different nonprofits while providing an impactful result. It leads to meeting new people on project and client teams and getting to know them too.

What don’t we know about you? 
I have a particular personal interest in addressing social inequity, including the application of Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) principles in corporate direction and governance. At a personal level, I am an advocate of life hacks.
