A few months ago, I organized a fun-filled and very successful Mozilla Firefox 4 launch party in the Province of Bukidnon, Mindanao. It was the very first one of its kind in the province and I’m mighty proud to say that I helped make it possible. With the generous help of Mozilla, other sponsors and of course, with the very good attendance of nearly 30 participants (Yay! :D), the event was a huge success. Mozilla Philippines even featured the event on their own website.
That Mozilla Firefox launch party proved to be something more than just a tech event. A few months later, I found out that Mozilla was in need of official reps. Mozilla launched the Mozilla Reps program, a program designed to make it easy for passionate Mozillians, all over the world, to organize/attend Mozilla events and activities, to document and share your these activities with the broader community and of course, to inspire new contributors to join the project.
And I’m super proud to let you all know that I was accepted to the program!
I’m now an official Mozilla Representative (or ReMo) here in the Philippines! 😀
I have several duties as official ReMo or Mozilla Rep but here’s one that I want to let you all know — I can help facilitate requests for sponsorship and/or cool swag for local events! 😀 Bet that piqued your curiosity, eh?
Anyways, I still have a long way to go – I still need to educate myself on the new Mozilla programs and collaborate with my mentor and other Mozilla reps around the world. I must say, though, that it’s all been very exciting so far!
