I recently received a scholarship from Ericsson to attend the United Nations Social Good Summit in New York City. I first heard of this company because they were the company that helped Nobel Peace Prize Winner Muhammad Yunus create a nationwide cellphone network in Bangladesh. It was actually Ericsson's backend systems that have helped me tweet and upload many of my videos while in Bangladesh.

For most people who have heard of Ericsson, we think of their Sony Ericsson cellphones. This, as I found out, is not their main business. Which was great because at no point during my time with them did they ever want me to pitch their cellphones. Their main customer isn't you or I - it's cellphone and telecommunication companies. They believe access to communication is a human right and being connected will help the poor. That's the reason I decided to interview them and make this video.
