Contributing beyond Code: My 6 months review

My Open Source achievement

Starting my contributions as a beginner in tech was an amazing journey and really something worth sharing because I was able to contribute beyond the code by actively helping out other beginners get involved. It took me from submitting talks about including beginners in OSS, making explanatory blog posts, tweeting about OSS, getting involved in onboarding teams to improve the process, and even having one on one calls to help out others get involved. In this talk, I will be sharing my challenges, strategies, and accomplishments so far highlighting my biggest recognitions which is joining the Github Stars program.
