I'm Ruth, from Cape Town, originally from Devon, UK.
I first got into EA at Oxford, hearing a Peter Singer lecture and meeting the guys from 80,000 Hours in their early days. I then worked in management consulting until I got fed up of big city/corporate life and moved to Cape Town to run an incubator.
After working in a few startups, I re-engaged with EA through Magnify Mentoring and a job search, ultimately getting a job which I love at an EA-backed global health NGO (not named since I'm writing in my personal capacity and not representing the organisation in any way )
I'm going to try posting about this - basically still figuring out how to get the best out of the forum and also looking to connect with those keen to prioritize those helping people today, especially the worst off.
Reach out to me if there's any questions you want answering or help you need. If I'm not busy then I'm likely to be happy to help.
