I'm Jan Jacob from the Philippines. I started out as a network administrator and then into security compliance. I'm currently a grad student taking up disaster risk and crisis management. I've been with the local NOG (PHNOG) since its inception 7 years ago and just have been exposed to internet governance in 2019 through APIGA. That weeklong event helped me connect the dots which help me advocate for resilient networks and equitable internet access in PH.
