Hello everybody,

my name is Ragni, and I'd like to contribute to the Ubuntu project. So 
far I haven't, but I'd like to give something back to a project that has 
changed and improved my life in so many ways.

During my theoretical and practical education as a journalist, a friend 
introduced me to Ubuntu in 2005, when I was sick of an 
almost-monopoly-OS we all know. It opened a whole new world to me, 
giving me real and easier accessible control to my computer. Some 
misconfiguring and X11-trashing was involved, of course. But I started 
to understand more about how things work, and found this to be 
encouraging. After finishing my journalism studies I started to take 
courses in Computer Science at a distance teaching university in Germany.

Being a queer feminist activist and a tech interested person at the same 
time, I hope to learn from the Ubuntu Women Mentoring, and give 
something back.

My personal strengths:
- Journalism, PR and Teaching
- Organizing events
- Writing, Video and Audio planning, editing and producing
- German (native), English, Norwegian

What I want to learn/ am learning:
- Technical Editing
- Programming

It would be great, if you had some advice for me, where to start, whom 
to contact, how to get involved and what standards to follow.

Thank you for your attention!

Best regards,
