Short Profile (including past involvement in Wikimedia activities in not more than 100 words)

I have been editing on kn.wiki and contributing to commons since last one year actively. I have also participated in many of the Kannada as well as Bangalore monthly wiki meetups. I have been participating in Academies out reach programs as well as the recent event WLM2012 covering most of the monuments in and around Bangalore, Karnataka. I have been finding some niche areas around Kannada Wikipedia and Wiktionary projects where in I could help the existing admins and special interest group through my development skills. I could attend DevCamp 2012 conducted at IIMB, Bangalore and got a chance to introduce myself to the area of PyWiktionary modules, Andriod Development and other Wikimedia projects. Here I got a chance to develop customized modules to import words and meanings via python or other scripts. Since we have a wonderful set of Frequently used terms in Kannada standardized under fuleproject.org recently by a group of enthusiasts, these new modules will be useful in handy. Also got a chance to develop a prototype for the simple mobile application to manage Wiki Events which is still in the inception stages. I have been the in-charge of upcoming Wiki Women's worshop in Bangalore happeninng on 9th of March, 2012.


Position Statement/Letter of intent (in not more than 200 words):

To seek, strive and succeed in achieving greater heights contributing my very best to the world of Wikipedia especially in the area of bridging gender gap and to make every opportunity a learning and successful experience by applying innovative ideas, intellectual thoughts with determination, making a difference at large.

I, Pavithra H solemnly affirm to hold the aims and objectives of Wikimedia Chapter in highest esteem and strive to the best of my ability in serving the cause of Wikimedia Chapter.
