I am grateful to have gotten the opportunity to collaborate with accomplished individuals and work on innovative projects at the University of Washington (UW).

Third Hindi Wikipedia conference organized by the Hindi Wikipedia community.

This January, I got the opportunity to attend Hindi Wikipedia Conference held in Delhi, India. I even got a chance to meet Wikipedians from Odia and Maithili community.
