Throughout 2015, Wikimedia Argentina conducted a series of interviews to meet the Wikimedia community in Argentina. What was the first article they wrote? What problems did they have? How was your approach to Wikimedia Argentina? These are just some of the questions this document tries to explain. The documentary premiered on January 15 as part of the celebrations of 15 years of Wikipedia.

As the Education Manager for Wikimedia Sverige (WMSE), the Swedish Wikimedia chapter, Sara is responsible for training and encouraging educators and students on how best to incorporate Wikipedia into the learning process.
