Hi there, everyone!
My name is Kimberly and I am from Florida, USA! I am a junior (11th grade).
I think that the Google Code-In is particularly interesting because it is one of the few ways that kids like myself (and everyone else on here!) are able to contribute to open source and the operations of actual organizations and non-profits! I saw OpenMRS as a really great organization for which I could contribute because it looked very open and friendly! I have never seen an open ticket that enabled me a chance to share information about myself and be friendly with my fellow peers--OpenMRS has a uniquely kind community with a great, world-reaching mission, and I believe it's work aligns with what I seek to contribute through my time in the Google Code-In.
I have participated in the Google Code-In in the past--actually last year! Last year was my first year in participating in the program. I really liked doing the few tasks that I did and being help out!
I'd love to learn more about all of you (and be friends, because that's pretty cool, too!).
