Come to America House and chat with Thomas Hill! Here is some interesting information about Thomas:
Thomas Hill wanted to be an English teacher when he was growing up. As a Peace Corps volunteer in Russia he learned that he was not a very good teacher, but is pretty good at writing grants. Thankful to have learned this early in his professional life, he switched his career focus to work with nonprofits and non-governmental organizations.
Thomas comes to Ukraine from Jerusalem, serving as Head of Programs for the Norwegian Refugee Council. Born and raised in California (mostly), Thomas studied American literature and nonprofit management in San Francisco and Santa Cruz. He met his wife in Hollywood and they were married on the beach in Malibu. Over the past 18 years, Thomas has worked in much of the former Soviet Union, in the Middle East, and the US. Almost all of his career has focused on supporting IDPs and refugees.
When not working he enjoys reading, cooking, chess, playing ukulele and teaching his toddler son new things. His favorite Ted Talk is Taiye Selasi’s “Don’t ask me where I’m from, ask me where I’m a local”. He believes that the cognitive dissonance many expats and international travelers feel is a result of focusing on the differences between the places they’ve been, instead of the similarities. Thomas will visit his 40th country in January, and loves eating fish in the Gaza Strip. He currently lives in Kyiv and Severodonetsk.
