Explain your plan[edit]

Tell us about how you contribute currently, and how you would contribute if WMF were to gift a used laptop to you.

My name's Rownak Shahriar Ruhan. I'm a Student of Notre Dame College, Dhaka, Bangladesh. I am involved with Wikimedia for 2 years and 6 months with about 10,000 Global edits. I don't have any laptop or desktop now rather a mobile which is also old modeled. Contributing from mobile sometimes causes problems and those problems create many complications and hinders me to edit Wikipedia properly. I need a laptop to contribute to Wikipedia more effectively. But for some financial issues it's not possible right now. So I am requesting a laptop donation if possible.
