Hi, I'm Anna e só!
Quick facts about me:
🔭 I'm a tech generalist passionate about OSS
🌱 I started my career as an Outreachy intern with the Wikimedia community in December 2017. I led a project called Translation outreach: User guides on MediaWiki.org that would change Wikimedia's technical writing culture and inspire new and old technical writers. Here's a report published on the official Wikimedia Foundation blog about my project — I'm really proud of it!
🖼️ I've been described as a "flexible professional that is always open to learn something new". Other tech professionals say that I add a lot of value to diverse teams in many different contexts, which is a quite difficult thing to achieve. Some friends even say that they don't think it's fair that they are nicknamed Google when people like me exist.
💪🏻 Today I am the main maintainer of @OpenCollective's documentation and an @Outreachy organizer.
🎙️ I do a lot of public speaking — from talks to workshops and other interactive sessions. I love connecting with people and helping them discover something new!
🏆 One of my proudest achievements is being the first Brazilian to win a Linux Foundation Training (LiFT) scholarship in the Women in Open Source category.
🧑🦯 I see things from a different point of view
📜 Yes, my name is Anna e só. Yes, it is my real name.

🦯 I'm partially sighted — sometimes I use a white cane and sometimes I don't, but I'm always using some kind of assistive technology.
