What is your background in Fedora? What have you worked on and what are you doing now?

I’ve worked on Fedora wallpapers as a designer since Fedora 33 to varying degrees, with Fedora 36 and 37 wallpapers discussions led between me and Mo Duffy. I’ve been taking courses in html to try and increase my skills to contribute towards some of the Fedora websites.

Please elaborate on the personal “Why” which motivates you to be a candidate for Mindshare.

Two years ago I was only aware of Fedora in the most basic sense, and wasn’t aware that I could contribute to the community. Helping others become aware of Fedora and how they can contribute and use it is a big motivator to be a part of Mindshare. In the 21st century we can encourage people to accept open source as a standard, and being in Mindshare will help.

Is there a specific task or issue you think that Mindshare should address this term and how would you contribute to that effort?

Nothing off the top of my head but I’m excited to potentially be a part of Mindshare and contribute a new perspective and lots of energy to efforts.
