Explain your planEdit

Tell us about how you contribute currently, and how you would contribute if WMF were to gift a used laptop to you. I am a active contributor of the English Wikipedia and have grown to become one of the key members of Wikimedia Ghana User Group. I also contribute a lot towards Wikimedia commons and Meta Wikimedia. I also manage the social media pages of Wikimedia Ghana User Group from 2016 to date. I currently volunteer as a Strategy Liaison for Wikimedia Ghana User Group during the current strategy discussions going on in the movement. I occasionally volunteer as a photographer and take photo's for Wikimedia Ghana User Group for it's media work.

I have had my current laptop for 4 years now and it currently suffers from occassional freezing because of it's heavy use as such makes it difficult for me to do work on time in my volunteer capacity. I also have difficulties using my current laptop to lead presentations during editathons and workshops. A new laptop would make it possible for me to be more effective with my work as a volunteer for Wikimedia Ghana User Group and in effect the Wikimedia Foundation.
