About me

I've been a Wikipedian since 2009. Voluntarily, I edited almost-exclusively in Arabic, focusing on featured content in astronomy, history and languages. I co-founded the user group of Wikimedia Levant, and I was elected as its first chair ("Chief Coordinator") in May 2017 and until 2022. Outside the movement, I was Arabic Language Community Advocate for Khan Academy, and a Program Coordinator for the Jordan Open Source Association.

I wrote for publications like Al-Sabeel Newspaper, Al-Kawn Magazine and the Arabic language versions of Popular Science and MIT Technology Review. I'm the author of two Creative Commons-licensed e-books: Hikayat Wikipedia ("Story of Wikipedia", 2017), and Fann Al-Tarjamah wa Al-Ta'ri ("Art of Translation", 2021).

My work

I have been supporting the knowledge management of Movement Strategy since 2019. Currently, I'm a member of the Movement Strategy & Governance Team. My work focuses on two topics: 1. supporting the Movement Charter Drafting Committee, and 2. setting up an information system to document the implementation of Initiatives.

I try to monitor any pages related to Movement Strategy on Meta, as I'm responsible for the process' information. That is a lot of pages, though, so please feel free to ping me or send a message to my talk page anytime to ensure that I see your message!

Previously, I supported the Working Groups in collecting and integrating feedback to the 2030 Strategic Recommendations. I was also responsible for documenting the Transition Phase of the strategy process, including the Global Conversations.

However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
