Why should we choose you over other applicants?

I love open source, as for me it's not just about software, it's also about community. I willing to contribute open source and GSOC is a good opportunity to get involved in new projects. I understand what open source is and have enough technical background to get the job done. I have been interacting with potential mentor(Tim Flink) to consider which features are most important and which features would be implemented in accordance to the time left after completing all the features.
