From Wikimania 2012 • Washington, D.C., USA
That's me!

Greetings! I'm Sarah Stierch, a 2012 Community Fellow at the Wikimedia Foundation. My work focuses around improving Wikipedia contributor's experiences, specifically female contributors, and exploring ways to encourage stronger women's participation in Wikipedia and related projects. For example: my recent blog post for the Huffington Post about Why Wikipedia Needs Women.

I sit on the presentation review committee for Wikimania 2012.

I've been editing since 2004, and I love it. I have the opportunity to share amazing knowledge with the world, for free. It's an empowering experience that has allowed me to not only share free knowledge and media with the international community, but has brought amazing people in to my life. Wikipedia changed my life, no joke!

I hope you'll join me in this global movement: make an account today!

You can always drop by my page on Wikipedia and say hi, and learn more about the contributions I make as an editor. Thanks again for stopping by, see ya on Wiki!
