Reason for being involved in workshop: I believe that we all benefit from a diversity of voices speaking at technical conferences and events. This project is closely aligned with the work of Mozilla Tech Speakers, and the goal of empowering more people to speak to more audiences about open web technologies. I like to help people with wordsmithing and self-expression.
