Starting March 2017, we welcomed a new fellow, Åsa Jonnson, assigned particularly to work on the WeatherHYDE project until August 2017.
Åsa is a dedicated, strong-willed and adventurous individual who is also very kind-hearted, caring, and is taking it as her personal mission to use her knowledge, skills and capacity to serve the under-served and vulnerable.
She is currently pursuing her Master of Urban Planning and International Cooperation at Grenoble Institute of Urbanism, Grenoble Alpes University in France. The Fellowship Program at bB will be credited to her Master's program where she is required to realise an Internship.
The Fellowship Program at billionBricks is designed to provide students with a practical and professional learning experience by offering professional content and context, and the opportunity to work closely in shadowing senior leadership. A curated experience will allow the student to develop substantive relevant skills and insights into the specific challenges facing the organisation.
In Åsa's 6 months with bB, she will be spending time working with bB team members and leadership, and working-on ground in Indonesia, Singapore and India.
