Click to read Nikita’s Contributor Story about Marie.

I want to use this opportunity to appreciate the exceptional mentorship I received from Marie Nordin, during my Outreachy internship with Fedora. Marie’s patience and working style set an incredible inspiration for me. It is the mentors, the managers and the people with responsibility in an organisation that set the tone of the organisation and Marie raised the bar of my first experience at work and at Fedora so high that I had to keep pinching myself to check if I was dreaming.

I hope I can meet and thank her in-person someday.
