Is it your first Wikimania ?
Have you already received a scholarship from Wikimedia France?
What is your implication on Wikimedia projects? How is it aligned with the theme of the conference? Please describe in details.
I am involved in the projects https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Projet:Les_sans_pagEs and https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Projet:Noircir_Wikip%C3%A9dia.
The project Les Sans Pages aims at increasing the visibility of women on Wikipedia by creating articles about women's biographies and women issues in general. I train other people and contribute to this project during the monthly workshops that are held in Paris at the cultural center La Gaîté-Lyrique.
The other project I'm involved in, Noircir Wikipedia, is trying to resolve the issue of a lack of references and articles about African people and Afro-descendant communities on Wikipedia. I am contributing to this project during my free time but am slowly getting more involved in it and would like to host or help other Wikipedians host workshops in Paris for this specific project.
Although it may seem that these projects are not directly linked to Wikimania's theme "sustainable development", women and minorities issues are closely tied to the topics of education (goal number 4), gender inequality (goal 5) and people's empowerment (goal 10).
I strongly believe that the world will not change until these goals are reached and that women and minorities should not be left out of the debate.
What is your motivation attending Wikimania?
My motivation is to meet the inspiring individuals involved in Wikipedia throughout the world, to learn from them and to try to combine my activities on Wikipedia and my real life activism.
Do you also plan to attend the hackathon or the learning days? (if so, please describe your projects there)
Have you submitted a talk or a workshop for Wikimania 2019? (if so, please add a link)
How good is your English?
I am fluent in English.
