Thanks for the mail, Nicole, and Teele for the post. Two points:

a) It is great to see this kind of chapter interchanges, and I hope to
see more of it. It would be great if more chapters can offer such

b) It is great to see how a generation of young people grows in/into
the Wikimedia movement, who do internships, write their BA thesis on a
Wikimedia topic or travel to conventions. When I started with
Wikipedia, I was already 30, way over the age of secondary

Kind regards

> Teele wrote a blog post on the movement blog, describing her time in
