Hi Monica - glad to have you on board :)

A good mentor will help you find places where you can contribute.
> I have read "Bits from Debian Women project" and I am really interested in the IRC training sessions. Moreover, I think I need a mentor to guide me because I am a little bit lost... Debian is huge!!! Maybe it's better I write to email@example.com and explain what I know, isn't it?
Debian is a big project with a huge diversity of people working within
it. I think it does help to have a friendly someone to guide you.
For specifically the Debian Women project please check/view/bookmark
the following :
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianWomen for more info on the DW project
for any mentoring questions.
We're on the usual irc channel, #debian-women on oftc.net, of course.
Likewise please check/view/bookmark http://wiki.debian.org/Teams.
That shows you a useful 'classification' of projects into
infrastructure and core, Debian development and the different
packaging teams so you can see what types of wider projects there are

Your English is streets ahead of my Spanish/Portugese (?)
