Another important assignment completed!
On July 14th, 2015 I had the distinction of interpreting at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs during a conference on Technology and Innovation in the Public Service.
Working at such a prestigious institution and having the opportunity to sit on a panel next to some very distinguished guests, should be enough to make any professional in my position feel nervous. However, since the guests were as affable and gracious as they were intelligent, everyone made me feel like an important piece of this star-studded mosaic.
At this event I helped Dr. Edval Novaes make a presentation on the use of Big Data for the service of the Public of Rio de Janeiro, and also helped him to participate in a technical discussion of the ways Big Data is leading us into a brighter future.
Learning while I work, that is just one of the reasons I am passionate about my job.
