It is important to go to places where you are rare so that you can help your colleagues with your unique skills ~ Megan Smith

About me

I originally hail from [1]. Before joining the Khowar Wikipedia, I was a student researcher at the Academy exploring how online platforms for learning could be made more peer-led, engaging, participatory and accessible to diverse populations. At the Media Lab, I contributed to the design, development, and research of [Khowar Language], a platform for running large-scale unconference style events online.

Before KAC, I was working with a five star Hotel in Karachi Pakistan. As an undergrad, I was involved with the linguistic community of Pakistan.

My work

I support the efforts of the organization to engage volunteer developers in Khowar Wikipedia Translation projects and to grow our technical community.

My work involves coordinating Khowar Wikipedia's participation in the mentoring programs such as Khowar edit drive, researching new developers experiences in our community and ways to improve outreach and retention, promoting developer projects through various venues.
