Samita joined TechChange last summer and has returned this year as an EGLI – Atlas Corps Fellow. As a Communications Associate, she assists in the daily communications with TechChange’s domestic and international clients and marketing of TechChange courses, as well as maintaining the TechChange blog.

She holds a B.A. in History with minors in Social Policy and Global Economics from Goshen College.
