Behind The Scenes at Namlo

Going into the summer, some new faces appeared at Namlo. All were attracted to an organization that held promise of great potential to achieve its mission. Most are are masters candidates, and a few are simply well-qualified individuals. In any case, an experienced team was formed with a strong impetus to create a strong support base for Namlo and its international operations. But who are they?

William Ackerman, Social Media Coordinator

Yours truly. I joined Nalmo in May, and already I love working here. Currently, I am a masters candidate International Administration at the Joseph Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver, and before that I graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder with a bachelors in both Political Science and International Affairs. Namlo, with its passionate mission for international outreach, appealed to me. Since I had previous experience working with social media and blogging for such organizations like New Era Colorado, a similar position with Namlo seemed ideal. I enjoy expanding its image because it means that its mission will likewise be extolled. Every “Like”, post, view, pin, tweet, add, and other increment of social media advancement ultimately benefits Nepalese communities we serve, and I could not be happier to do so.
