de moi[edit]

Hi, I'm Wilsn and I currently live in Abuja, Nigeria.

I'm a Wikimedian in Residence at The Honoris United Universities.

I have a main Wikipedia account (OtuNwachinemere) which I use for my editing purposes. This account is for training and project purposes.

If you ever feel like getting involved in some of our projects or training sessions then message me, by all means. I'd be glad to hear from you.

The project page for the residency is located here: W:Wikipedia:Honoris United Universities and my blog is here: http://thinking..

About me[edit]

I have a B.Tech in Information and Media Technology from FUTMinna.

Currently, I am studying preparing for a project management certification as well as courses on Information Management MSc, Journalistic photography and DELF/DALF. I am also very interested in the following courses:

  • An Introduction to Screenwriting
  • Unlocking Film Rights: Understanding UK Copyright - Bafta Research & Creative Skillset (Futurelearn).
  • Introduction to Computer Science (CS50) - Harvard University (edX)
  • The Complete Web Developer Course: Build 14 websites (Udemy)

Things I like[edit]

I love cycling, traveling, music, history, TED ed., cinema, cycling and literature. I'm interested in all kinds of stories and events with a potential to make history. Above all, I'm passionate about the idea of lifelong learning and broadening your horizons. Hence why I am here.
