As the world is more into diversity and inclusion in the present day world with special emphasis on gender diversity and other forms of diversity such as disability inclusiveness is almost forgot (or more often used like a fad most times than not), as a born disabled person with cerebral palsy to the extent of 75 percent, I would like to present my wonderful journey in the Ubuntu community from the past 15 years.

From an Ubuntu member to an Ubuntu developer to being on the loco council and app review board to being in the outreach (now emeritus). I want to talk about how the Ubuntu community has influenced my daily life which has enabled me to get 4 civilian awards in India to being a private entrepreneur now in Budapest and a book author.

So would love to give an introduction to beginners in the world of open source from a diversity point of view to the Ubuntu community.
