|Taarifa ya utangulizi / muhtasari wa maombi.
Sehemu hii itatafsiriwa. (Upeo wa maneno 150)
|Ninataka kuleta uzoefu wangu nilioushi kuhusiana na Wikimedia na bodi ya WMF wakati wa mabadiliko, na utekelezaji wa mkakati wa harakati na Baraza la Kimataifa lijalo. Ninataka kuona WMF ikishirikiana zaidi kwenye tovuti za wiki katika 'njia ya wiki', kwa usaidizi bora wa kiufundi na zana za kusaidia maarifa huria ya lugha mbalimbali katika miradi yote ya Wikimedia. Pia nataka WMF ifanye kazi vizuri zaidi na washirika ili kukuza Wikimedia kwa kiasi kikubwa, hasa kusini mwa Dunia.
Nimekuwa mhariri wa Wikimedia tangu 2005, nikiwa na michango kwenye Wikipedia, Wikidata, Commons, Wikisource, na zaidi, vyote kwa mkono na kwa zana za kiotomatiki na nusu-otomatiki. Kwa upande wa shirika, nilianzisha Wikimedia UK na mimi ni mwanachama wa Wiki Movimento Brasil. Nilikuwa katika Kamati ya Usambazaji wa Fedha kwa miaka minne, na kwa sasa ni mwanachama wa kamati ya ruzuku ya mkoa. Mchana mimi ni mwanaanga wa redio, ninayeishi Tenerife, Uhispania (hapo awali nilikuwa nikifanya kazi Uingereza na Brasil).
|Michango kwa miradi ya Wikimedia, uanachama katika mashirika au washirika wa Wikimedia, shughuli kama mratibu wa harakati za Wikimedia, au ushiriki na shirika mshirika la Wikimedia.

|I've made over 400,000 edits, mostly to Wikidata, Commons, and English Wikipedia, as well as to English Wikisource, Meta, and others. I am an admin on the first three. I operate Pi bot, which has made nearly 10 million edits, mostly on Wikidata and Commons. I created the multilingual Wikidata infobox that is used in nearly 4 million Commons categories. I co-founded Wikimedia UK and was a trustee for its first 5 years as it established and became a charity: I am now an honorary member. I have been part of Wiki Movimento Brasil since 2019 (informally since 2016).|
|Utaalamu katika maeneo ya ujuzi yaliyotambuliwa kama mahitaji ya Bodi.

|I have gained a lot of experience with organisational strategy and management work through the Wikimedia movement since 2008. I was a Trustee of Wikimedia UK for 5 years (2008–2013, including as Chair, Secretary, and Membership Secretary), I served on the Funds Dissemination Committee for four years on its inaugural committee in 2012–14, and a returning term in 2015–17. I am currently on the Northern and Western Europe grants committee since 2021. I understand and work to support the governance needs of organisations across the Wikimedia movement, and want to bring this experience and viewpoint to WMF in a time of Wikimedia organisational change with the Global Council.
I am an experienced developer through my day job as a radio astronomer, which includes scientific analysis of large (TB+) datasets through self-written software packages. I understand software development processes at a practical level, focused on implementing them to solve specific problems.
|Uzoefu wa kuishi ulimwenguni. Tunavutiwa sana kusoma kuhusu matukio ya maisha katika maeneo ya Afrika, Asia ya Kusini, Mashariki na Kusini Mashariki mwa Asia na Pasifiki, na Amerika ya Kusini na Visiwa vya Karibi. Tunaamini kuwa uzoefu katika maeneo haya unaweza kusaidia kupanua uwezo wa bodi wa kutimiza lengo la mkakati wa harakati la ushiriki wa usawa zaidi, ingawa tunatambua kuwa uzoefu mwingine unaweza pia kutoa michango muhimu.

|I was lucky enough to be born in the UK, and grew up in the north of England. After studying astronomy up to the PhD level (thanks to a student loan and a PhD studentship), and working in a postdoctoral position in the UK, I moved to São Paulo, Brasil, in 2016 to work on a new telescope project there as a jovem pesquisador. My experiences there included living in one of the largest cities in the world, and one of the most economically divided, as well as visiting remote parts of Paraíba to find a radio quiet zone for a new radio telescope. In 2019 I moved to Tenerife, part of the Canary Islands - a Spanish region off the coast of Africa - to work on telescope projects at Teide Observatory.
Through astronomy, I regularly work with scientists from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds. I also supervise both astronomy and Wikimedia students from across the world, whenever I can. This includes improving both gender and geographical diversity through the students I mentor.
There is a huge opportunity for Wikimedia to grow significantly in the global south, linked to the movement strategy, which requires decentralisation of power from WMF and increased support (resources, growing leadership capacity) through the Wikimedia affiliates. I would like to build on my expertise from the grants committees and lived experience from Brasil to help WMF accomplish this.
|Ufasaha wa kitamaduni na lugha pamoja na maeneo na lugha za ziada kwa eneo lako la asili na lugha. Uelewa wa kitamaduni husaidia kujenga madaraja katika jumuiya yetu ya tamaduni nyingi.

|Learning new languages and cultures is not easy. While in Brasil, I learned some Portuguese, and explored the culture and country, particularly with other Wikimedians from Wiki Movimento Brasil. I've tried to document part of this through the articles on, and tens of thousands of photos of, Brazil that I've shared to the Wikimedia projects. In Tenerife, I am learning Spanish, and also exploring and documenting the local history and culture - although Tenerife has already been quite well documented, particularly on the Spanish Wikipedia, less so on the English Wikipedia. Whenever I have visited another country for work, wiki, or tourism, I always take my camera - not for the usual tourist photos, but to document its history via Wikimedia.
I also try to support multilingual knowledge through Wikidata. This is best demonstrated through the Wikidata Infobox in Commons categories, which I created to be able to better understand the local history in Brasil that I was photographing, and is now one of the biggest multilingual uses of Wikidata in the Wikimedia projects outside of Wikidata itself. I would like to see the WMF make more use of such multilingual opportunities, particularly through the Wikimedia sister projects.
|Uzoefu kama mtetezi wa kuunda nafasi salama na shirikishi kwa wote na/au uzoefu katika hali au miktadha ya udhibiti, ukandamizaji au mashambulizi mengine dhidi ya haki za binadamu.

|Safe and collaborative spaces are really important. While I do not have experience with creating them, I support and encourage them as much as I can. I have also seen the after-effects of dictatorships and censorship in both Brasil and Spain, although I have not experienced it directly: the best I can do is to help document this and hope it doesn't happen again in the future.|
|Uzoefu kuhusiana na (au kama mwanachama wa, kwa kiwango unachochagua kushiriki) kikundi ambacho kimekabiliwa na ubaguzi wa kihistoria na uwakilishi mdogo katika miundo ya mamlaka (pamoja na lakini sio tu kwa tabaka, jamii, kabila, rangi, asili ya kitaifa, utaifa, utambulisho wa kijinsia, kujieleza jinsia, mwelekeo wa kijinsia, umri, dini, lugha, utamaduni, elimu, uwezo, mapato na mazingira).

|I can't claim experience here beyond trying to support such groups and individuals whenever I meet them. Both Wikimedia and astronomy (and physics in general) have huge issues with under-representation, and I try to help improve that through supervising students, doing outreach work, and providing general support wherever I can.|
