French Wikipedian from Wikimedia User Group Community of Côte d'Ivoire
Shared Experience: I participated in Wikimania for the first time. And I come out with a lot of acquired and coonexion with people. Especially with the women of the movement. It was one of my goals. While waiting for the enhancement of achievements with my community, I made a point of my participation on my blog After WikiIndaba and Wikiconvention Francophone, taking part as a contributor to the biggest meeting of wikimedians in the world was for me a great opportunity. I became familiar with all the other communities. And I intend to put the benefits of this participation to the benefit of my community.
