Dear all,

I would like to nominate myself for EURALO ALAC position to replace
Veronica Cretu from Moldova. I think Internet users of Eastern Europe are
underrepresented in ALAC and ICANN, and gender and regional balance is
extremely important for effective functioning of global multistakeholder
On other side, Eastern European users lack knowledge and understanding of
ICANN activity and concept of multistakeholderism, and I and my
organization do our best to fill this gap.

I am founder and director of iNGO “European Media Platform” with
head-quarter in Kyiv, Ukraine (since 2010).

As a journalist and media expert in the past, I covered activity of the
Council of Europe and was the member of the Group of Specialists on Human
Rights in the Information Society (MC-S-IS) of the Council of Europe
Steering Committee on the media and new communication services (CDMC). In
2006 I was invited by the Council of Europe as a journalist to cover first
Internet Governance Forum in Athens, and saw huge potential of new (for me)
domain – Internet Governance and multistakeholderism. And in 2010 I
initiated  IGF-UA and since that time I am a member of IGF-UA Steering
Committee (in 2016 we had IGF-UA VII with ICANN as co-organizer). Actively
participate in Southern-Eastern Dialogue on Internet Governance (SEEDIG)
and EuroDIG, organized several workshops at global IGF. Member of Working
Group on National and Regional Initiatives on Internet Governance (NRIs).

In 2010 my organization became At-Large structure, and I was elected as
EURALO Secretary (for two years).

Actively participated in ICANN IDN Variant TLD Group of Experts (Cyrillic
script), now member of ALAC Board Member Selection Process Committee (BMSPC),
EURALO Bylaws Taskforce WG and EURALO Task Force on ALS engagement.

Organizer of numerous remote hubs in Ukraine for ICANN meeting, EuroDIG and
IGF. Organizer of Safer Internet Days in Ukraine.

Participant of NetMundial.

Member of At-Large Councils at two Ukrainian governmental structures (State
Service of Special Communication and Protection of Information and State
Agency on e-government, which is responsible for Internet governance issues
in Ukraine). It was our achievement to activate Ukraine representation in
GAC (our official representative in GAC will participate for the first time
in ICANN meeting in person in Copenhagen).

Founder and organizer of international Forum “Media for Information
Society”, initiator of multistakeholder Working Group on cybersecurity.

In 2009 I graduated European Summer School on Internet Governance in
Meissen, in 2010 participated in ICANN Fellowship Program. Graduated Diplo
Foundation Courses on Internet Governance.

We pioneered to use the term of multistakeholderism in Ukrainian, and
translated a lot of materials on Internet Governance into Ukrainian and
Russian (among them - Olivier's analyses of WCIT and some articles of
Wolfgang Kleinwachter).

My priority in At-Large - to help post-soviet communities to understand
multistakeholderism and ICANN and to help ICANN to understand us.

Hoping for your support,

Best regards,

Oksana Prykhodko
