Hello, my name is Andrew Sherman.
I worked at the Wikimedia Foundation from February 2015 to May 2016. I was the Digital Communications Intern on the Foundation’s Communications team and helped co-lead the Wikimedia Foundation’s blog. I managed and created content and media assets as well as captioned and helped to produce videos with our videographer.
My primary responsibility was the Wikimedia Highlights. I created the blog post each month and facilitated translations from the fantastic Wikimedia translation community. With the community’s help, the Highlights were translated into nearly 25 different languages and reached thousands of readers worldwide.
The community’s support also played a role in the videos created by the Communications team. I captioned many of our videos allowing for translation and engagement from community members around the movement. I am very appreciative of the community’s support, engagement and wonderful work on all these projects.
My internship was amazing. I am very grateful and thankful to all the community members and Foundation staff that I had the pleasure of working with over the past year. I have learned so much and gained so much knowledge from this opportunity. I hope to stay engaged with the Foundation as a volunteer member of the Wikimedia community as my time permits.
