Reason for being a Mozilla Rep
I have been a fan of Mozilla ever since the Milestone Releases in 1999. Having attended the Mozilla 1.0 Release Party in Quito (Ecuador), I decided to host a Firefox 1.0 Release Party in Munich (Germany).
In 2010 I participated in the Drumbeat Festival in Barcelona and am part of the Webmaker community ever since.
My main contribution to Mozilla is in the area of community building with a regional focus German-speaking countries.
I became a Mozilla Rep in June 2011 and am a Reps Mentor since November that year.

A rep, a mentor, a webmaker, a Mozillian, a passionate community builder is what defines best Henrik Mitsch. Sharing his time between the Swiss, Austrian and German communities (all of them are now part of the broader German-speaking community) Henrik has done a stellar job supporting these communities since joining the program two years ago. Lately, he has been doing outstanding work around Firefox OS and supporting local developer communities in the above-mentioned countries to organize several App Days in Vienna and Zurich , successfully spurring local developers to create new web apps for Firefox OS. As if Henrik was not busy enough, he recently participated in Mozilla's Summit 2013 Planning Assembly in Paris as an official delegate, providing valuable insights and input, but also driving a brainstorm to prepare for Mozilla Reps sessions at the Summit. Please join the Council in congratulating Henrik for being Rep of Month for June 2013 !
