Trixia Apiado, Business Development

Hometown? Manila, Philippines and small-town Kettering. Ohio

Education? Currently working on a B.S. in Foreign Service from Georgetown University

What do you want to be when you grow up? A diplomat for the United States of America. My family immigrated to Ohio 11 years ago. I had to earn the privilege of being an American so I want to give forward and represent the United States around the world.

What do you like best about working with Open Data Nation? Most of my experience thus far has been inside a classroom. With Open Data Nation, I was working in the real world and learning how cities work. Ultimately, I love that I work with such an interesting group of people who all have amazing experiences both personally and professionally.
