Welcome to the community!
If there's anything at all we can help with, please ping us on any of
the community channels :)
I made my first steps in the free software movement by setting up
workshops to teach women how to contribute to Wikipedia during a mandate I had from the
University's Diversity and Inclusion office. I still teach this in a 4 year assignment
at the Gender Studies department financed by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
I am very passionate about issues concerning the gender gap and promoting inclusion, as
well as helping newbies to find their own way in complex and sometimes not very friendly
projects. I am very interested in the way Fedora is doing this, with a clear defined
process and very admirative of the Fedora Badges.
I have had a few friends telling me how "fedorable" this community was, but
since I was invited at the Fedora week of diversity last October, I have felt very shy
because I am not a coder. Someone proposed that I translate docs, and I first I thought it
would be pretty boring for an unpaid activity. But then as I do want to use free software
more, and learn Python, I thought I could manage a win win approach by first translating
documents that a newbie would stumble upon when joining your community.
Apart from that I love reading (sci fi and feminist stuff above all), swimming and kayak,
and playing Animal Crossing.
I look forward to knowing more about Fedora!
