I am Dorothee's Mentor in the Reps program where I have witnessed her dedication, creativity and drive to help Mozilla's mission in Cameroon. She's designed and is leading a series of events in Cameroon to promote FFOS, community building in her region. I think Dorothee is a great leader, and will influence change for Cameroon and Mozilla in the years go come.
