That huge novel took me forever to finish, but I fell in love. In fifth grade, we were assigned to teach our classmates about any subject we chose. I lectured on nineteenth century literature.

Today, as you probably guessed, I’m an English professor. I also contribute to Wikipedia, editing articles about writers like Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein, and Jane Austen, who wrote Pride and Prejudice.

When I think of my work on Wikipedia, I don't just think of myself as someone who adds information; I think of myself as a teacher. Through Wikipedia, my reach extends far beyond any classroom. In the past month alone, Wikipedia's article on Jane Austen has been viewed more than 115,000 times.

At my university, I have access to many quality resources. But most people can't access these sources; they’re hidden behind a paywall. By editing Wikipedia, I can help fix this injustice.

I love learning. I always have. Which is why I believe so strongly that it should be available to everyone.

Oletko samaa mieltä? Sitten pyydän sinua tukemaan kanssani Wikipediaa.
