My name is Jordana Fung and I am an Engagement Manager for the Professional Services team at Pantheon. I am working on the Managed Updates team and work on client communications and process and project management.
I live in Paramaribo, Suriname - a country on the Northern coast of South America where we speak Dutch. We identify as Caribbean and have a multicultural population of 500K or so.
I have been on Drupal.org for almost 12 years(!) but started being more active in the community around 2015 when I went to my first drupal event, DrupalCamp Florida. This was especially important to me as before I loved Drupal but this is when I fell in love with the community.
Since then I’ve enjoyed mentoring, speaking, volunteering and helping organize events.
I am also a volunteer member of the Drupal Community Working Group.
Going to events and engaging with the community have only added to my passion for communication and community relations and for helping people do well and the sharing of knowledge and ideas. I try to read and learn about communication and self development and have had some talks about it at Drupal events.
This year will be my first time going to a WordCamp in Miami, so I am very much looking forward to that and any tips are very much welcome.
I also very much enjoy good food, good wine and beer, traveling and meeting new people and enjoying new experiences. I’ve met wonderful people that have helped push me out of my comfort zone and I have always been grateful for the experiences.
I love adventuring!
