Introducing our team

I have the privilege of working with an awesome team of IBMers from all around the world for this corporate social responsibility program. We’ve had a lot of fun getting to know each other these past few days. As the saying goes a picture tells 1,000 words so I will keep the text brief. Drum roll please for my ten teammates from eight countries…
