“Real joy comes not from ease or riches or from the praise of men but from doing something worthwhile. - Wilfred T. Grenfell”
I am Tanweer, currently an undergraduate student, studying architecture at Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology. I reside in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh - a country in South Asia - nestled by the Bay of Bengal in the south and Himalaya in the north. And I'm from Bangladesh, Earth, Solar System, Local Fluff, Local Bubble, Gould Belt, Orion Arm, Milky Way galaxy, Milky Way Subgroup, Local Group, Virgo Supercluster, Local Filament, Universe. Got it?
I discovered Wikipedia in early 2007 but started contributing in May 2009. Since then, I've been an active editor in multiple Wikimedia projects, but predominantly in the Bangla Wikipedia. With a view to expanding the Wikimedia movement in my home country, I - along with several other Wikimedians - co-founded the chapter Wikimedia Bangladesh. Over the years, I've co-organized numerous programs and events to disseminate the Wikimedia projects. I am or have been in the following positions in the broader Wikimedia movement:
- Administrator, Bangla Wikipedia (January, 2015 - present)
- Treasurer, Wikimedia Bangladesh (January, 2016 - present)
- Member of the Programme Team, Wikimedia Conference 2015
- Member, Affiliations Committee (January, 2016 - present)
