Susanna Mkrtchyan is a grandmother on a mission: She’s working to give Armenian students the same educational opportunities as students who live in the United States—and she’s using Wikipedia to do it.

Susanna is a professor in the field of database and system research. Two years ago, she started using the English she learned as a student to translate English Wikipedia into Armenian and Russian. On the Armenian Wikipedia, she focuses on Armenian history and education.

From the capital city Yerevan, Susanna incorporates editing Wikipedia into her life, finding time between her professional life and taking care of her family. “When I’m not stirring the soup, I’m working on Wikipedia.”

Her twin grandsons used to bring her articles about basketball to edit on Wikipedia, so she told them, “Create an account and edit yourself.” And grandma was the perfect teacher to show them the ropes of editing.

If grandmothers, mothers edit Wikipedia, they feel how important the work is that they do, and how important is to make a heritage for future generations.

“I want that our young people to have high education because, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, our education collapsed, too, a little,” she says. “That’s why I want to take Wiki projects into universities and schools.”

Susanna was busy in her field of governance of science when she realized Wikipedia could create an environment for scientists inside Armenia and abroad to collaborate and resolve problems. She attended Wikimania 2011 in Haifa, Israel, and talked with Wikimedia Foundation representatives about starting a chapter in Armenia.

Soon after, Susanna began organizing activities to meet with Armenian Wikipedia administrators and editors. Not only did she help found the Wikimedia Armenia chapter, she is its first president. “Now we have a more or less active group and we all help each other to make Armenian Wikipedia better.”

她希望更多人能够考虑对亚美尼亚维基百科贡献他(她)们的才能。

“在维基百科上进行编辑有助于你更好地整理你的演讲,”苏珊娜说。她同时认为这也教会人们如何对他人保持宽容。

“If grandmothers, mothers edit Wikipedia, they feel how important the work is that they do, and how important is to make a heritage for future generations,” she said.
