Before writing this article I wanted to take some time, because writing this small article concerning the MozFest it is an hard work. Hard work because the MozFest is more then one human could imagine.
For a volunteer at MozFest, this experience was not only an exercise to open the mind and heart at the OpenSource, and in general, a innovative ways to make technologies in a Open way. For a Volunteer is make and help the people to have a great experience in all these. This is my first MozFest and have the opportunity to help, to know and to make a session is in real awesome for me!!!
In general during the Festival, I was be involved in the promotion of the Mozilla Campus Club Program (Campus Program Homepage), I had a session, named Open Project – hackaton: campus campaing edition, with Christos Bacharakis & Faye Tandong to make a round table concerning the Students and their necessity & to work all togheter at the project OpenStudentBook, I helped in the MakerParty ChangeCopyright Table and in the Mentorship Program helpdesk too. The Open Student Book is a project that have the goal to make a little guide readable and editable to try to understand how the students of differents Faculties could be involved in Open Communities and, morevoer, how they could find interesting to contribute in Open Project. This project is born, this August, when I started a Mentorship Program with the Mozilla Foundation. Moreover I’m really happy to see that my Poster Design for the Campus Club be liked at some people at the mozFest 🙂
My personal first experience at the MozFest2016 was Awesome!!! Awesome because I meet more of all the people who constantly I meet and with which I persecute my goals how Mozillians. Awesome because there, we have made all things in a Open Cooperation and including all the participants. The last but not the least, Awesome, because this festival isn’t a place where you see only something but you can make an experience where all people are equal.
I wish at all people to have the opportunity to go at the MozFest the next year and I want to say thank you at all people who given me the opportunity to help, to have a session and to make this awesome Experience! Especially thanks at Abigail, Christos, Lucy, Brian, Faye & Mayur to support me, at Geraldo, Julia and Amira to insipre me with the Mozilla Club!!!
