Dear Documentation team,
My name is Adam Lax.
I'm very interested in getting involved as a volunteer to help with open
source projects. I come from the higher education/ non profit sector with
over 4 years of experience teaching college level writing to ESL
I'm looking to transition into technical writing and would like to get
direct experience with the documentation process by volunteering on a
project.I believe my extensive writing, editing, and proofreading
experience can be quite helpful.
As an educator, I have also honed a strong ability to explain orally and
written form concepts, ideas, and tasks in a thorough and step-by-step
manner for those who are not familiar with them or even speak English as
I would appreciate any guidance you all can give me in just starting out.
I'm eager to learn and apply my writing skills to this team!
