Introductory statement / Application summary.
This section to be translated. (150 word maximum)
Djelovao sam kao mentor, moderator i voditelj zajednice te sam pružao tehničku podršku za više nedovoljno zastupljenih Wikimedijinih zajednica i volontera, pogotovo u Africi. Iskreno se radujem mogućnosti pružanja pomoći drugim nedovoljno zastupljenim zajednicama i suradnicima diljem svijeta.

U proteklih nekoliko mjeseci moj je glavni fokus bio na lokalizaciji Wikimedijinih alata i projekata radi rješavanja nekih zahtjevnih problema povezanih s nedovoljno zastupljenim zajednicama diljem svijeta. Jedan je od mojih ciljeva i suradnja s Wikimedijinim podružnicama i zajednicama kako bismo zajedno pronašli bolje alate za podršku višejezičnim bazama slobodnog znanja u svim projektima Wikimedije i doprinijeli rješenju globalnih problema Wikimedije.

Na temelju mog prošlog iskustva u javnim politikama, želim doprinijeti implementiranju politika koje su u skladu s implementiranjem strategije pokreta i Globalnim vijećem kako bi se osigurala ravnopravnost za sve.

Doprinosi Wikimedia projektima, članstvo u Wikimedia organizacijama ili podružnicama, aktivnosti u ulozi organizatora Wikimedia pokreta ili učestvovanje sa organizacijom koja je saveznik pokreta Wikimedia.

Proživljena iskustva u svetu. Posebno smo zainteresovani da pročitamo o proživljenim iskustvima u regionima Afrike, Južne Azije, Istočne i Jugoistočne Azije i Pacifika i Latinske Amerike i Kariba. Verujemo da bi iskustvo u ovim regionima moglo da pomogne da se proširi sposobnost odbora da ispuni cilj strategije pokreta, a to je pravičnije učešće. Naravno, svesni smo da i druga iskustva takođe mogu dati važan doprinos.

I am a Ghanaian Wikimedian, born, raised, working and currently living in Ghana in the African Region. One of my experiences is about "Open the Knowledge." For many years, foreign media and tourists have provided insufficient content about Africa to the world, which paints a negative picture of the African region. So far I have seen Wiki-in-Africa and some other African affiliates of the Wikimedia Foundation putting in some work with regards to the Open Knowledge initiative in order to raise awareness of the biases, under-representation, and inequities in our movement that continue to close Wikimedia projects to much of the world’s people and knowledge. I do have the motive of collaborating with African Wikimedians to change the narrative or perception when it comes to the African Continent as a whole.
Odlično poznavanje drugih kultura i regiona, i jezika koji nije vaš maternji. Interkulturalna svest pomaže u izgradnji mostova u našoj multikulturalnoj zajednici.

I grew up learning multiple languages in school and in my local community due to the diverse people I stayed with and schooled with. I was able to learn how to read and write some languages such as Afrikaans, Asante Twi, Fanti, Akan, Akuapem Twi, English and some basic French and Spanish. I have worked on multiple contractual translation jobs remotely and voluntary. Some of the organisations I have done translations for are; RightsCon and the Ghana Bible Society. Aside from my external translation jobs, I have contributed massively when it comes to translating pages on Wikimedia projects, tools and other softwares. I am currently in the process of creating a translation tool to help contributors in Africa to translate Wikimedia Projects from English into their local languages specifically for Afrikaans, Twi, Akan, Ewe, Dagbani, Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo, and Swahili. One of my translation projects was for the Kiwix Andriod app on playstore. I am currently also collaborating with some Nigerian Wikimedians to come up with a tool and a Wikimedia Education Program to help the blind and visually impaired people to be able to read and contribute to Wikimedia Projects. Through my previous Wikimedia Projects and events, I have collaborated and worked with people from diverse backgrounds based on countries, ethnicities, religions and tribes to have successful events and projects. Which has contributed a lot to my life in terms of knowledge.

As a citizen of the global village, I am an advocate for human rights, specifically in the area of silent threats against the safety of journalists around the world with regard to freedom of expression and media development. In recent years, I have advocated with UNESCO to help protect the rights of journalists around the world and to provide safe spaces for them. Looking at the global and regional killings of journalists around the world from 2016 to 2020, the impunity of crimes against journalists and other attacks and threats, such as enforced disappearance, kidnapping, and arbitrary detention, is what motivates me to advocate for the human rights of journalists not only in Africa but the world at large.
Iskustvo u vezi sa grupom (ili iskustvo člana grupe, u meri u kojoj želite to da podelite) koja se suočila sa istorijskom diskriminacijom i nedovoljnom zastupljenošću u strukturama moći (uključujući, ali ne ograničavajući se na kastu, rasu, etničku pripadnost, boju kože, nacionalno poreklo, nacionalnost , rodni identitet, rodno izražavanje, seksualnu orijentaciju, godine, religiju, jezik, kulturu, obrazovanje, sposobnosti, prihode i okruženje).

I do come from a smaller ethnic group in Ghana, which is underrepresented when it comes to power and influence. In terms of population, we are about 1.4% of the total population of Ghana. I would prefer not to share further details at the moment.
