My name is Vibhanshu Chaudhary , student of Computer Science & Engineering and Club Lead (CL) at NIET Firefox Club.
I can never forget the date on which I applied to become a member of FSA program. Yes , It was 25th April, 2014. Before it , I did not know about this program. When I read about the FSA program , Mozilla Manifesto and story , I got excited to join this program and contribute to it. So , My journey towards Mozilla started with this day.
Now , You can also call me an Mozillan and Firefox Student Ambassador too. Unfortunately , I had some tough and unfavorable time in my life during those days , due to which I couldn’t contributed to FSA program. But everyone knows tough time does not last long. So , I again thought to do something for Mozilla. In this time , I came to know about Club Lead examination. I applied to become CL and gave the CLT exam. After a long duration of more than one month , I got mail from the FSA Eboard that I have been selected as a CL and I may carry my role as a CL officially. That day was an awesome for me. But there was no Firefox Club in my college , so I made my club registered on Mozilla wiki and named it as “NIET Firefox Club“. In parallel to this , I recruited about 70+ FSAs in my club and organized various events in college regarding FSA program. Meanwhile , I started contributing to MLS and MDN.
Being a FSA , It helped me to develop social relationships and leadership skills , got an insight about open web and open source , came in touch with other awesome Mozillians like me and got a social identity.
In whole , my experience as a FSA is just awesome and I love Mozilla. I also wish that other open web enthusiasts like me should also join the FSA program and get a golden opportunity to uplift themselves in every context of life.
There are many such moments in this journey which I cherished and enjoyed the most which I will express in my next post.
