I am happy to introduce you to the Featured Wikimedian for March 2018, Nithesh
from the Punjabi Wikimedia community.
*Nitesh Gill* is a young and energetic Punjabi Wikipedian from Moga,
Punjab, and is studying Punjabi literature from University of Delhi. Her
Wikimedia journey started in August 2015, when fellow Wikimedian Satdeep
Gill introduced her to Wikipedia and taught her how to edit.
One of her main focus on Punjabi Wikipedia is the Gender Gap. In her
attempts to bridge the gap, she has been a trainer to BBC 100 Women
Edit-a-Thon and also collaborated with "Feminism in India". She has also
organized many outreach activities & edit-a-thons like Sanjh, Asian Month,
Womens History Month, LGBT Edit-a-thon etc.
Nitesh's another major achievement has been the #WikiYear challenge, which
she completed successfully on 28th February 2018, wherein she has created a
Wikipedia article everyday, continuously for 365 days. The most interesting
part of the story comes to say that all the articles that have been created
are about women. She also contributes to Wiktionary, Wikisource, and
