I have been a member of the Wikimedia community since 2015, contributing content and organizing events. I have also served in several roles within the Wikimedia ecosystem including: executive director of the Global Open Initiative Foundation, anglophone regional ambassador for Art and Feminism, Board Governance facilitator and Movement Strategy and Governance facilitator with the Wikimedia Foundation.
In 2020, participated in Global Voices Rising Voices’ digital security + languages project as a workshop facilitator. And now, I am currently the Anglophone Africa Regional Editor.
I find satisfaction in using freedom of information to build stronger and more resilient communities, especially underrepresented ones globally, and to empower people to raise their voices more effectively to obtain the rights, goods, and services they need and deserve.
