Dear APRALO Community,

Greetings to all,

I’m starting this email expressing my interest of self-nomination to APRALO
position as representative of ALAC delegates to the Nomcom.

My path in ICANN started with my first fellowship in ICANN53, 2015, in
those two years, I gone through a discovery mission to familiarize myself
of the work of different entities of ICANN organizational structures and
its cross community interactions, because believe that experience
strengthen the theoretical background and gives depth understanding in
knowledge construction.

When my timeline started with ICANN at Buenos Aires, APRALO LT team gave me
the understanding of what is expected of the role of ALSes and it happened
that ISOC Palestine was a recent accredited  ALS APRALO member.  As the
vice chair of ISOC Palestine, I became a delegate of my ALS, after that the
Chapter carried different outreach activities for ICANN and how to make the
public aware of ICANN. At ICANN55, I was a coach fellow and I focused my
schedule to attend ccNSO sessions.  Where .PS considered me their liaison
in their absence of ICANN public meetings, I even gave presentation about
.PS at the newcomer session of APTLD70.  On April 2015, I became a member
of MEAC-SWG, helped in putting its Charter and the Strategy itself.
Attended APSIG 2016 as a fellow participant to increase my awareness of the
IG issues in the diverse Asia Pacific region and now I’m active in their
fellowship sub-committees. Again I was a coach fellow at ICANN57 which
helped me widen my AP network with ICANN members.  This week I gave a hand
in formulating an IGF2017 workshop proposal initiated by APSIG community
member in cooperation with IG activists from Global South.  As for the
GNSO, last August, I became an individual member of NCUC, an experience
which helped me identify the difference in the missions and affiliations of
At-Large and their focus programs of civil society and end users.  The
closest I could get into the ASO was through my remote attendance to
sessions at MENOG17.

For my ICANN engagement in committees/sub committees, I’m a participant at
the “ALAC Subcommittee on Finance and Budget”, “Cross-Community Working
Group on new gTLD Auction Proceeds” and a member of the NomCom2 Review
Working Party.  The later equipped me with comprehensive understanding of
the role of nomcom members while examining of the  RFP for Review of the
Nominating Committee to the independent examiner.

A brief background of my personal profile, I’m online freelancer in
Capacity Building on IG and certified tutor by Diplo Foundation. Soon to
end, my term as a vice chair of ISOC Palestine and founding member of ISOC
Blockchain Special Interest Group. Graduated from Syracuse University with
double MSc. degrees in Computer Science and Information Resources
Management and have a BSc. in Mathematics/Computer Science from Jordan
University.  Had a 23 years of lecturer experience in Operations Management
courses at the Faculty of Business Administration in Bethlehem University.
Served on the nomination committee presenting Best Bits network on the
Internet Governance Civil Society Coordination Group.  As an member of the
Arab MAG 2015, I coordinated the workshops track for the 4th Arab IGF. Was
among the training consultants for the online track on IG capacity building
program for HIVOS iGmena project.

Having a look at ICANN Bylaws, Article 8: NOMINATING COMMITTEE, section 8.4
Criteria for Selection of Nominating Committee Delegates; with my academic
experience, and the good background that I developed about SO/ACs I can
apply with confidence of my competences that match this position even with
no consideration for gender balance criteria.

Hoping APRALO members will find my bio matches their expectations for this

Best wishes,

Nadira Al-Araj

ISOC Palestine (ALS)
