    Dear wikimedian people,

    My real name is my user name : Lionel Scheepmans. I am a French native speaker Belgian guy borns in 1969. I can easely communicate in English and Portuguese and I also have some basic capacities in Spanish, German, Dutch and also Malinké, Tamil and Vietnamese language. Finally, I'm also a good user of Deepl for European languages and Google translate for other one .

    All my background is displayed on my Meta-Wiki user page and all my curriculum and academic works on my French Wikiversity user page. My complete CV is also available on this page. In summary, I am very active on Wikimédia Movement on line since 2011 and off line since 2014. I am one of the founding member of Wikimedia Belgium chapter, and I'm actually in the board since two years with cumulative function of administrator in our wiki-site. I've started to be administrator in fr.wikiversity in 2015 and more recently, I've took back the interface administration. All statistical information about my online activities can be check on the Wikiscan tool.

    Actually PhD student in anthropology making my thesis about Wikimedia movement, I feel very confident about what I can bring to the Wikimedia movement as a steward. If I'm selected, my knowledge of minority cultures and my experience of living in the "Global South" (Africa, India, South America) will certainly help me in my interventions on Wiki projects created in minority languages than we all want, I think, see developing.

    A nice end of the day to all! Lionel
