What do you do in Fedora/how long have you been involved in the project?
I’ve been involved in the Fedora Project since 2014. First only as user and then after a pair of Italian meetings on #fedora-it (with robyduck and mailga), I got involved in the L10n team. A mini-talk from averi helped me to join that team. After a year, I joined the fedora-websites team and followed my mentor-master robyduck.

What attracts you to this type of work or part of the project?
I like development and I’m studying to become a developer to change jobs. I am merging this need with a love for open source and getting more willing volunteers. Furthermore, I like Red Hat, its advocacy for open source and the people involved.
