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.

Usually I write articles for UG EZY (Erzya Wikipedia). I am a member of it about 1.5 year. I have taken part in international marathons twice (Wiki Spring 2018-2019). Also I have taken part in CEE-2018 in Lviv, Ukraine. Step by step I am entering into Wikinews "department", writing news in Russian, Erzya and sometimes in English. Recently I have entered into new (still under constraction) "North-West historians in Russia" group. We are interested in old buildings, cemeteries, war period objects, making foto of them.

I was educated as a finno-ugric filololgist. This is my field of interest. I see my role in translating articles from Finnish into Erzya about filologists that did huge job in finno-ugric languages, including Erzya (Mordvin) language. Most of them are unknown for people. Extra laptop is needed because I have the only laptop now in my family: usually we need it in the same time in the evening, children for doing homeworks, me - for Wikipedia. Somebody have to waite always.
Wikipedia itself is a huge challenge for me. I was sure I never teach to use it. Step by step I am involving into it.
