Also, I shared my emotions and impressions of the travel and the conference in conversation with journalists.

I was invited as a speaker on October 2018 to 2 libraries of the city of Khmelnitskyi. I'll tell to the librarians and community of our city about Wikimania, Wikipedia and South Africa.

Connections[edit]

I visited Wikimania this year for the first time. It was a great experience for me and I am very grateful to the organizers of the conference for this opportunity. I met other users of Wikimedia projects from Great Britain, Côte d'Ivoire, Republic of Cameroon, Armenia, South Africa, Canada, Egypt, Germany, Bulgaria and Israel. I communicated with May Hachem, Armineaghayan, Eliane Dominique Yao Sigan, women who are actively involved in Wikimedia projects. It was also very interesting to me to attend the African sessions and listen to speeches about Wikipedia in Africa.

Anything else[edit]
