  • What are your best contributions to Wikimedia projects till date and why do you want to become a coordinator?
    • I have contributed to Wikidata, English Wikipedia, Telugu Wikipedia and Wikimedia commons. I have published two Did you knows in English Wikipedia. I have participated in various campaigns of Wikimedia foundation conducted by VVIT WikiConnect. I like the concept of Jimmy Wales imagining a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge. As a coordinator I would like to promote this concept among my college students and make my friends to take part in Wikimedia movement.

    • Some of my contributions are to Wikidata, English Wikipedia and I participated in edit-a-thons like Hockey edit-a-thon, WWWW etc. I want to become a coordinator because I want to create more awareness about Wikimedia projects in our college and community. Thereby encouraging students to participate in club activities and improve club performance.

    • I made several contributions to SVG Translation Campaign 2019 in India in regional language Telugu.

    • I've been involved in edit-a-thons when the club was formed in 2017, photo walk where we've shot many photos of the ancient sculptures in Vijayawada and surrounding places. I also helped to dub the Wikimedia Tales video into Telugu. I'd like to be elected as the coordinator for 2019 because I like Wiki and I'll have better scope to contribute
