Checking the last e-mail Amber Graner sent today, I noticed that I've been
part of Ubuntu Woman Team since 2009-02-19 but I wasn't part of the list. I
joined the list today and one of the suggestions talks about introduce
myself to the team.
Well I guess I don't have too much to say about me, I can tell you I'm from
Colombia but I had been living in Central America for 8 years, first being
in Costa Rica, then Guatemala and now in Honduras. I Knew about Ubuntu
because an old classmate Fabián Rodríguez (MagicFab) told me and encouraged
me to join the community when I was in Guatemala. I was just getting ready
to make contact with the team in Guatemala when I had to move to Honduras.

Fabián told me the Ubuntu Honduras community was completely inactive for a
while ago and that it could be a nice opportunity to start working and make
know  Ubuntu here.
So I decided to give me the opportunity and we "re-open" the team on
2008-09-13. The first person to appear was Diego Turcios who some of you
already know and then more and more people followed joining the team. Today
we have 51 members and we hope more people come to join us. Not all of them
are very active but we have a nice group of 5 people that believe we can do
it and hope we will find more Ubuntu fan/lovers that help us to continue.
Honduras is a country that has little or wrong knowledge about Free Software
so we have a lot of opportunities ;)

Show romanization
I am not a computer expert and that's why I'm encouraged by two things, one
that is easy to learn with Ubuntu and two that without too much experience I
had been learning every day throughout the community.

I spend my time between my family, the Ubuntu community and helping a place
for disabled children in the city called Hogar el Buen Samaritano.

To know more about me and my relationship with Ubuntu Community
I've been writing in my blog in spanish, because most of my friends doesn't
speak english but I have a few things in english, the most important, my
story with Ubuntu

My blog

Look forward to help the Ubuntu Women community and also feel supported by
