Nitesh Gill (User:Nitesh Gill) is a young and energetic Punjabi Wikipedian from Moga, Punjab, and is studying Punjabi literature from University of Delhi. Her Wikimedia journey started in August 2015, when fellow Wikimedian Satdeep Gill introduced her to Wikipedia and taught her how to edit.

One of her main focus on Punjabi Wikipedia is the Gender Gap. In her attempts to bridge the gap, she has been a trainer to BBC 100 Women Edit-a-Thon and also collaborated with "Feminism in India". She has also organized many outreach activities & edit-a-thons like Sanjh, Asian Month, Womens History Month, LGBT Edit-a-thon etc.

Nitesh's another major achievement has been the #WikiYear challenge, which she completed successfully on 28th February 2018, wherein she has created a Wikipedia article everyday, continuously for 365 days. The most interesting part of the story comes to say that all the articles that have been created are about women. She also contributes to Wiktionary, Wikisource, and Wikimedia Commons.
