presentation (Re: hello everyone)

Hello! im a debian's user and programmer from Uruguay, living now (for
the summer) at North California (mountains in trinity county). I was
reading about other mailings list (other than debian-user-spanish) in
lists.debian.org and i found debian-women. I find great to have a space
to encourage women to participate in free software and in debian
projects. I hope i can help in this community.
