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.
Option 2: Learning Pattern: What is one useful learning pattern you can share with the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to a learning pattern - either a new pattern you created with insights from your participation, or an existing pattern to which you added your endorsement and some significant new "considerations" or “examples” from your experience.

Option 3: New Creation: What was one useful outcome that was created at the event for the Wikimedia movement?
  • Grants:PEG/FloNight & Rosiestep/WikiConference North America 2016: Decided during Wikimania, en:user:FloNight, en:user:DrMel and I applied for a grant -- for WikiConference North America. (DrMel subsequently dropped off the grant.) This is my first grant application. There is a wonderful planning committee assembled and we are diligently to towards developing a great conference.
  • en:Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red/Meetup/18: I met May Hashem at Learning Days, she invited me and my team, Women in Red, (WiR) to participate in the Wikipedia and United Nations Women Project in August, and I said yes: 12 July - 12 August, and on 12 August, I'll be at the United Nations Headquarters to facilitate the in-person editathon.
