I’m an open source evangelist and lover of this philosophy and Mozilla is a perfect community for the involvement of people like me.
I’ve started as a KDE supporter in his community but the relationship with the users was poor for introduce a new user in the development of the softwares.
I’m vouched as Mozillian, before my really trip in the Mozilla World, by a friend and I was following the news closely in the area of Mozilla and when I found a Mozilla event in my country I decided to participate even if the subject Firefox OS I not know much.
So in January 2013 I attended to Firefox OS App Days Rome and I won a Geeksphone Keon.
After this spectacular event I decided that I would become a volunteer Mozilla really active in more areas possible.
