internship: week 1

Internship has started and also the work :).

I asked to Shaun, my mentor, what can I do for helping him, and after a introductory conversation he told me to order the little mess in Gnome Help (on Gnome User Docs). So I added a couple of guide pages, re order the topic pages according to the main theme and edited the existing guide pages to order the topic pages on it.

And after a few changes (done by Tiffany) it looks so much better and according to how we want Gnome3 to be.

There's still so much work to do and so many pages to write.
I hope to do a great job.
Thanks for reading :).

GNOME Outreach Program for Women !!

I would be lying if I say I'm not happy about it. I would be lying if I say I'm not nervous at all because of this.

At first, I was really hesitant about applying to this Program (not because I didn't wanted to, but I thought I couldn't make it). Even when my available time was  limited,  I made a contribution to the Rhythmbox's user help.

And finally I was accepted on the GNOME Outreach Program for Women, and I could'nt be much more excited about this!
I'll be working in Documentation Project, with Shaun McCance as my mentor :).
This is a great chance in my life and I'm gonna take advantage of this... I'll do my best to learn and help from GNOME!

I want to give thanks to Marina Zhurakhinskaya and to Paul Cutler, for helping me through all the application process. And also give thanks to Shaun McCance for being my mentor :).

Regards to Gnome Planet!
