I was pleased a few weeks ago to receive the notification that I had
been accepted as a member of the GNOME Foundation. It's an honor and a
privilege to be associated with an organization that has such strong
ideals and great successes. And each day that I work with GNOME, I'm
humbled to be a part of this great organization.
So, who am I? Honestly, there's so many parts to this organization that
I haven't had a chance to meet you all in the various projects. My
primary focus is with GNOME-A11y. And why? Because I'm visually
impaired and want to make sure I can still use the computer as my vision
I'm not a developer by any stretch of the imagination and my focus has
been on advocacy and promotion. I recently travelled with the A11y team
to the CSUN Accessibility Technology Conference/GNOME A11y Hackfest and
truly had a great time getting to know everyone face to face.
Though I've participated in team activities for about 2 years now, I
recently started looking at formalizing the work I've done with the
hopes of expanding advocacy and spreading the word that GNOME is a very
*VIABLE* option for accessibility needs. I hope to interface with
interface with many of you as my efforts begin to solidify.
Outside of GNOME, I also participate in the openSUSE Project as a Board
Member as well as Lead for the openSUSE Marketing Team.
Many thanks again, for allowing me to be a part of this great
