Biography

Akua Walters (Jamaica) runs a startup called Hacker Hostel. The organization identifies final year Computer Science, Math, Physics and Electrical Engineering students from countries across the Caribbean and pairs them with senior software engineers for four weeks, where they undergo a boot camp that allows them to easily transition into junior software engineering roles. He also advises members of the Government of Jamaica on matters related to innovation and entrepreneurship. His goal for attending the Paris IGF meeting is to further push the dialogue across the Caribbean region around the governance of the Internet, the essence of net neutrality, and the nuance of fostering local talent to ensure a free and open Internet for all.
