Pamela Ofori-Boateng, a young Ghanaian lady who started editing Wikipedia in 2017/2018 has become renowned in the skill and using it to impart positive change in society.
In a narration sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghnkomo.com, Pamela Ofori-Boateng, who is also a digital media practitioner with about 6 years’ experience states that her inspiration in life is to cause a change in society.
According to the proud product of Ghana Institute of Journalism who studied BA in Communication Studies with Journalism as an option, she uses her skills in Wikipedia to highlight more on the achievements of women in business.
Interestingly, she only learned the skill in 2017-2018 from a man called Felix Nartey after she attended a training in Accra.
Fast forward from the training, she signed up on Wikipedia and within few days, became an editor for Wikipedia based on her enthusiasm and dexterity on the job.
Currently, Pamela also works as the editor for Business World Ghana which is an online platform for business stories as being a Wikipedian doesn’t pay and is just done to create a positive impact.
It would be recalled how YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Pamela personally sacrificed several sleeping hours to programme information about Veronica Buckets on Wikipedia.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on Pamela's personal account, the brilliant lady narrated how she spent an entire night on the task of preserving the origin of the Veronica Buckets.
The idea alone to even embark on such a voluntary task for Ghana without necessarily getting anything in return makes her effort worth celebrating.
