Braden, welcome to the Fedora Project! It was great to see that you're
also from Kitchener, where I am from too! I've lived in the US for
about 15 years now, but get back there a couple times a year.
You might also be interested in joining the Fedora Ambassadors team
). Its good to see more
folks from Canada joining. We're trying to grow the presence in Canada,
so there is lots of opportunity if you want to get more involved.

My goals in the Fedora Project are to join the marketing team, help
spread the word and promote fedora and advertise so, the general public

I have slightly more than basic knowledge or marketing but not quite
advanced knowledge. However, I have a enormous interest in marketing and
would like to learn more and grow my knowledge, although I am actively
working to do so, by taking some more advanced courses.
Other skills that might be applicable are my sense of humor (Could make
for some creative and entertaining ads) and my creative way of thinking.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I wish you and the Fedora
Community the best.
