I have been contributing to Drupal in a few different ways for a few years now. I started off by participating in meetups, and then contributing to Drupal core whenever I found time. Eventually, I was even contributing full-time courtesy of Axelerant, my employer. At the same time, I started participating in events outside my city and eventually in other countries as well. I was speaking at most of the events I attended and mentored at sprints in many of these events.
