I am very lucky to have been using linux while growing up since my father was a developer. I have to credit him with introducing me to Free and Open Source software at a very young age, (younger than I can remember).

I do at the moment;
 +
* provide support in #fedora
 +
* I edit the wiki, so if there is a page that needs care, drop a note on the disscussion page. :)
 +
* Introduce FOSS to high-school students.
 +
* provide support for people who have recieved the gift of FOSS from me.
 +
* spend tireless hours waiting for the next version of fedora to download.

Yes, i know i get that alot. I am a person who is mature, i am in year 9* advanced class. I am an honest responible person.

I strongly believe that people should not be judged on their age, they should be judged on their maturity. As an example i know a certain 12 year old who can code in python, javascript, css, html, jquery etc. Yet he can not get a fedoraproject.org account. How sad.
