May Hachem, I got my B.A in English and Spanish Languages in 2015. I am a Wikipedia editor and a Wikipedia Education Program Leader. Wikipedia Education program is a program that started in 2010 in the United States of America and in 2012 in Egypt. In Egypt, It aims at enriching the Arabic content on internet through Wikipedia. I have joined the program in 2013 as a student who translates articles from English to Arabic. Few months later, I was chosen to be a Campus Ambassador for the program in Ain Shams University. I created the first WikiWomen course in MENA in 2014, inspired by a global initiative then to narrow the gender gap on Wikipedia. With my students we translated articles about female figures from 6 languages into Arabic: English, Spanish, Persian, Turkish, Russian, Chinese. I have expanded the program in Al- Azhar university, and recently in Alexandria University. My students translate articles about female figures in all fields and medical articles related to women.
