Rahid Hasan Nagarjuna Kalidindi

It brings us great sadness to share with you the recent news about two of our dear Reps we will so fondly remember. Nagarjuna Verma and Rahid Hasan of the Mozilla South Asia community are no longer with us.

Both passings are extremely sad, for it was not their time. They had so much to contribute to the world, to the society, and to the Web – as they so passionately continued to do. They’ve inspired many Mozillians, and even though we have a heavy heart, we know that their inspiration, legacy and memory will sustain us moving forward.

Nino Vranesic

When Nino joined the Mozilla community, he didn't spend much time talking, asking questions and thinking about how he could start contributing. Instead, he already applied for Mozilla Student Reps (today known as Firefox Student Ambassadors) and started acting by organising a local Open Source conference, with strong presence from Mozilla.

Passionate about free and open technologies, Nino continues to be the driving force behind the event (Open Way), which is growing every year and has just completed its 4th incarnation. As the main community builder of the Mozilla Slovenija community, he made sure Firefox release party was part of the conference, too.

Nino is a kind of a person you want on yor team: he gets things done.

Michael Kohler

This month's Rep is Michael Kohler from Berne in Switzerland. He started contributing Firefox patches as a teenager in 2008. Four years later he became a Mozilla Rep. Michael is continuously firing up the Swiss community. Most recently he organized swag for an event in Zurich which was all about Rust. Since Michael is super-charged with organization superpowers, he also started to set up events in Germany and Austria. Among his 2014 achievements is the successful organization of the German-speaking Community Meeting in Berlin in early February. This makes Michael one of the few people who manage to pull off events in three different countries within a couple of months. Further broadening our community growth Michael is reaching out a wide range of Mozillians covering areas such as L10N, hacking and Webmaker. Please join us in wishing Michael all the best for his future Mozilla endeavors!

Umesh Agarwal

A Computer Science student pursuing B.tech from Dr.B.C.Roy Engineering College in Durgapur, India, Umesh was accepted into the Mozilla Reps program just six months back. However, his exceptional contributions to the program in the last few months, along with his polite and helpful character nature, has made him a very recognized name in the community already.

From organizing over 6 major events, participating in more the 12 events in all and recruiting 6+ Mozillians within his short tenure of becoming a rep, he's been an absolute trailblazer from the Mozilla India community. With a particular knack for Webmaking, he has been actively collaborating with schools and libraries to teach the Web to all kids in his region.

Congratulations Umesh on doing such a phenomenal work as a Rep! Here's to the awesomeness that you will bring to the program in the days ahead! Keep rocking! :-)

He is also part of the Greek Firefox OS Launch Team. Christos has been voted as the awesomest Rep of the Month for October 2013. Congratulations!
