Meet Crystian Ioppolo, Palisadoes Volunteer

Crystian was our first volunteer based outside Jamaica!

She began working on soliciting grants for our Calico Challenge program. All our Jamaican sponsors are familiar with her work.

In 2020, she submitted our first Google Summer of Code (GSoC) application. We didn’t get selected, but she had faith in our mission and applied again. We were successful! She helped us get selected for the GithHub Externship and Outreachy programs too.

She has been very active in our slack and GitHub communities. She assigns issues, tests out our code and gives advice to our contributors.
