Welcome back from Wikimania 2018!

Participant[edit]

Flixtey

English Wikipedia

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.
When I got back I had a chance to share my experience in 2 offline meetings organised as well as shared a brief story of what ensued at the conference through a newsletter. In the newsletter, I shared several interviews I granted on the importance of Wikimedia to Africans and how to make the best out of the first Wikimania in Sub-sahara Africa.


Connections[edit]

I co-facilitated the lightning talks and gave a talk at the lightning talk on the first day of the pre-conference. There were about 30 people in attendance. I also led a pre-conference for librarians and there were about 30 in attendance. I had a chance to meet with lots of librarians who were interested in exploring the Wikipedia space even after the conference, and I have pledged my support to them.

Anything else[edit]

I also gave a closing speech as the Wikipedian of the year (link to video).
