Did You Know (DYK?) articles Edit
List of articles I created/co-created/co-improved which appeared at DYK? section of mainpage
DYK A-Z country challenge with user:Dr. Blofeld and user:Nvvchar My love of DYK articles: On September 19, 2007, I created the Kallawaya people article. Another editor noticed it, nominated it at DYK, and a few days later, it appeared in the DYK section of the mainpage; it was my first DYK contribution. On September 18, 2013, Goaribari Island appeared in the DYK section; I was the third person (and first woman) to have 1,000 contributions appear at DYK. It was an important achievement for me; here's what I said about it: Some of you know that I am a cultural anthropologist at heart. I wanted to follow in the footsteps of Margaret Mead and study cultural anthropology at Barnard (my mom's alma mater), like Margaret did. I wanted to travel to Papua New Guinea and do research on its people, like Margaret did. But my dad said 'no' to majoring in anthropology -- he wanted something more practical for my university studies. So now, years later, I get to live the life of an armchair cultural anthropologist, writing articles about Goaribari Island and its cannibals. To all the girls out there with impractical dreams, this article is dedicated to you.
