Arabic Language Specialist Strategy Coordinator, Wikimedia Foundation

About me

I study English Literature at the University of Jordan. I like to spend my time writing, volunteering and, most of all, learning new things. These were all reasons that encouraged me to start editing Wikipedia in 2009, and on a daily basis ever since. I have had a part in organizing Wikipedia's Education Program, Wiki Loves Monuments and plenty of other events in several countries of my region. In 2015, I helped in founding Wikimedians of the Levant user group, and I later contributed as the vice director of its first major event WikiArabia 2016. I am also the Project Manager of Scientific Saudi (a large Arabic-focused voluntary organization), and the Arabic language translators advocate of Khan Academy.

My work

My role is focused on involving the local community of Arabic language WikiProjects in Wikimedia strategy plan for the upcoming 15 years. I will be helping in conducting discussions, coordinating with my community and writing reports in order to communicate the Foundation's strategy to Arabic Wikimedians and to help them understand why and how they should participate in planning the Movement's next steps.
