I have been familiar with the digital world since 2008 during my college period. Back then, we had just started the 1st citizen journalism experience in Côte d’Ivoire with the Avenue225 project. This remarkable initiative earned several local and international awards. In 2010, I became its Chief Editor. 2011, having graduated in Law one year ago, I got involved in digital entrepreneurship along with friends from the Avenue225 experience. 2 years later, my dedication and passion for local digital contents will lead me to being elected, in 2013, as General Secretary of the Bloggers Association of Côte d’Ivoire (ABCI).
Since 2013, I have been in charge of leading Wikimedia Community User Group Côte d’Ivoire (WCUG-CI) first, as chairman of the Coordination Committee back to the time when we were just a Planning Chapter. During the Constituent Assembly of 04th April 2015, I was entrusted with leading the User Group as the first Chairman of WCUG-CI. This heavy mission implies, but is not limited to, defining and deploying the User Group’s objectives as well as being its representative.
