I believe in taking or creating new opportunities a good example of this is my involvement in the WordPress community.
Although, I have been using WordPress since 2007. I started out from a place of naïvety within the WordPress community, not really knowing that much about their events until I volunteered to be an organiser of Manchester WordCamp 2015. I have since gradually grew to understand the community so much so that I became the lead organiser of WordCamp Manchester 2018.
My experience of the online community has grown over the past 5 years and I have contributed policy and advice locally and internationally on forums and slack since getting involved.
I am a member, speaker and organiser for the local Manchester WordPress community (MWUG) too.
