Dara Adib is the GNU Generation member of the month!
Dara started a group at his school called the CHSN Tech Club that not only educates other students about free software, but also educates the school district about the problems with proprietary software. He has been successful in helping his school district break free of the chains of proprietary software by explaining the benefits and assisting in the installation of multiple pieces of free software on all school district computers. Along with another student from the tech club, Dara is a member of his district's technology committee, which helps him influence decisions and advance the cause locally. He is also leading his school club in a project to use free software to help other students review for courses. They are creating freely licensed course review material to help other students study for classes.
Bravo to Dara! If everyone took steps like Dara's, in no time, we would have the world's scientists, business leaders, politicians, programmers, and more advocating for and supporting free software.
If you (or someone you know) is approx. aged 13-18 and would like to be a part of a great community of free software advocates, check out GNU Generation!
