Hi everybody,

my name is Anna. I've been working with Opera's Education program for the  
past year, attempting to improve web education on campuses around the  
world. While I am not a very technical person, I very much enjoy the  
relational and outreach side of things. It's a great feeling to be able to  
empower students and assist professors to make a change on their campus.

I look forward to working with you guys.
