Hello everyone. I’m User: Alhassan Mohammed Awal from Ghana. Some of the Wikimedia core projects/tools I’m active on are Wikipedia, Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons and Wiktionary.

Oi gente, tudo bem? Já ando por aqui há algum tempo, mas ainda não me apresentei formalmente :wave:

Meu nome é Tila Cappelletto, sou brasileira :brazil: e Wikimedista desde 2015. Embora a minha língua materna seja o português, comecei a fazer parte do movimento editando a Wikipédia em espanhol porque na altura morava em Madrid :es: e minha introdução aconteceu numa editatona incrível liderada pela Patricia Horrillo / Wikiesfera - Meta). (Sempre reconheça aquelas quem vieram antes de você!). Graças a essa experiência, tive a oportunidade de me organizar com outras mulheres e cofundar as Wiki Editoras Lx (coletiva de wikimedistas lusofalantes).

Passei a fazer parte do movimento Wikimedia porque acredito no poder transformador e libertador do conhecimento, e que os projetos Wikimedia têm potencial para serem a ferramenta de todo o conhecimento e de toda humanidade. Contudo, e como sabemos, para isso o movimento precisa de uma estratégia (alguém disse Estratégia do Movimento? :smile:). Caso contrário, nosso destino é a reprodução das estruturas sociais e consequente exclusão de diversas comunidades e saberes. Nesse sentido, meu maior interesse é contribuir para ampliar a participação sustentável de comunidades que ainda não façam parte (ou estejam subrepresentadas) no movimento. E você, sente que contribui individualmente ou como parte de alguma comunidade? Qual a sua motivação? :thinking:

Ps1. No âmbito das recomendações da Estratégia do Movimento, a que mais me interessa é #invest-in-skills-and-leadership-development (Capacitação e Formação de Liderança). A sua também? Vamos conversar! :call_me_hand:
Ps2. Em 2021 comecei a trabalhar para a Fundação Wikimedia como facilitadora da Estratégia do Movimento. Se você estiver se perguntando “Estratégia? Movimento? Recomendação? Iniciativas?”, vamos conversar! :call_me_hand:

(Bom, basicamente é para isso mesmo que temos esta plataforma, não é? Vamos conversar! :laughing:)

Hello,

  • My real name is Emese, just my nickname is Lois (from Lois & Clark). I live in Hungary. My native language is Hungarian, but I speak English, and I’m learning Hebrew and Latin.
  • I translate. Everything that is important or not important, I translate. :rofl:
  • I am autistic. I know this is a disadvantage in many places. That’s why people don’t like me.
  • The tasks I’m given I like to do as quickly as possible. That’s why I thought I would join the team and help with my translations.
  • I often get “translation fever” and I would like to translate from morning till night, from evening till morning. Of course, no one should bother me.
  • I have a Siamese cat called Caesy. She’s 7 years old and a bit hysterical. Sometimes she helps me to translate.
  • I consider myself a funny person. I don’t know what else to write. I’m glad I found this forum :blush:

Hello,
I am Abu Dhorr Ahsan (nickname: Shahajada)
I am from Bangladesh. My native language is Bangla but I am also good at English (have basic knowledge in Hindi).
I am a new contributor to the movement and trying to be more active and help the movement.
Fun fact is that I am not good at any particular thing so I try to contribute everywhere because by contributing everywhere I might not do much in depth but I have knowledge about that which I may use to help in other sector.
Have me in your prayers :innocent:
