[Wikihi-l] [Featured Wikimedian] April 2018

Krishna Chaitanya Velaga-2
Greetings,

I am happy to introduce you to the Featured Wikimediam for April 2018, Sangram Keshari Senapati (User:Ssgapu22<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:CentralAuth/Ssgapu22>) from Odia Wikimedia community.

Sangram is an active Odia Wikimedian from Bhadrk, Odisha. Sangram was introduced to Wikipedia by his senior at college. He later signed up, and created two articles on English Wikipedia. Upon knowing about Odia Wikipedia, he started contributing to it. But as his writing skills were not good, he used to proofread works on Odia Wikisource, and from that experience he learnt the exact pattern of writing in Odia. He recalls that users MKar and Psubhashish greatly helped him during his initial days.

From his contributions, it can be said that Sangram is an ambassador of #100Wikidays challenge. After having participated in Rathajatra Edit-a-thon, Nabakalebara Edit-a-thon, and Wikipedia Asian Month in 2016 & 2017, he decided to regularly commit himself towards improving the coverage of information on Odia Wikipedia. His first challenge was #100WikiWomanDays<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Ssgapu22/100WikiWomenDays>, which he started on 8 March 2017 i.e. International Women's Day. Having successfully completed it on 15 June, he took up another #100Wikidays<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Ssgapu22/100wikidays(2nd_Challenge)> on 13 July. Immediately after its completion 20 October, he took up his third challenge<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Ssgapu22/100wikidays(3rd_Challenge)> on 21 October, and completed it on 28 January 2018. As this journey continues, he is now amid of his fourth Challenge<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Ssgapu22/100wikidays(4th_Challenge)>, which was started on 29 January. With these, he aspires to complete his WikiYear some day.

Sangram is a graduate in Computer Science and Engineering, and is now working as an editor at an Odia magazine. He also an avid photographer, and maintains a photography club. He advocates that new editors need to focus on learning the rules of Wikipedia, and contribute to good quality articles.

Wishing him all the best to to complete his WikiYear;

Best,
Krishna Chaitanya Velaga
