Outcome[edit]

Option 1: Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?
Add a link here to a blog post or newsletter you wrote about your participation afterwards, or to a meet-up you organized to share your experience with your local community.

I wrote a report in Turkish which includes summaries of all speeches and discussions that I attended and it was published on Wikimedia Community User Group Turkey website.

Connections[edit]

I made some very important connections within both the Foundation and the broader community. One of the most notable was with the WMF's Executive Director Katherine Maher and General Counsel Eileen Hershenov which was about the block on Wikimedia from Turkey.

I also met up with Turkic speaking Wikimedians from Azerbaijan, Iran, Russia, and Turkey. Meeting new people was the best part of Wikimania!

Anything else[edit]

This was my first Wikimania and it was an incredible experience. I am so grateful for the opportunity to attend. Thank you to WMF!
