Gnome and I

The first day I was told that I was awarded Gnome internship I knew that my life will never be the same again in the career field that I chose to pursue. On the 24 of February 2012 I got recognition from Translate.org.za for being one of the people who showed initiative and willingness in developing their mother tongue language, mentioning that I have become the second South African woman to be awarded a GNOME internship. Being a Gnome Intern also granted me an opportunity to have my career profile reviewed on the UNISA Radio Station on the 24th of February 2012. The importance of having Gnome apps available in the IsiXhosa language, for me it is to share exciting and interesting news to the public. I can say so far the journey with Gnome has been bliss and exciting all the way. Thank you Gnome!
