At Wikimedia Summit 2019.

Hi! I am Abbad Diraneyya. I have been contributing to Wikipedia since 2007, and have been an admin on the Arabic version for three years, until I requested my resignation (for personal issues). I mostly write long and extensively researched featured content on Arabic Wikipedia, I carefully choose its subjects from stuff that I feel interesting: mostly, it is about astronomy, wildlife or history. I also do a great deal of organizational work in the 'places' where I live. I have been a co-founder of Wikimedia Levant, co-organizer of four versions of Wiki Loves Monuments in two Arab countries, and vice director of WikiArabia 2016 event in Amman. I also had the great pleasure of attending three Wikimanias. Currently, I am serving as the Chief Coordinator of Wikimedia Levant, studying a bachelor of English Literature and learning my way through German.

Sadly, I do not own a good camera; so you are not going to see me around here much, even though I wish I did.
