The Project Haiku and CD Metrics Team would like to thank Manel Rhaeim for her contributions over the past summer.
Manel Rhaiem was an Outreachy intern in Summer 2016 who worked on Connected Devices. During Manel’s internship, she made contributions to both the Project Haiku team and the CD Metrics team. In Project Haiku, she worked on doing data analysis for our second user research experiment. She also made contributions to a web-based prototype for the ongoing user testing and experiments.
Manel Rhaiem has been involved with the Mozilla project since 2012. She is a member of the Mozilla Tunisian community. Manel has participated in every single Mozilla Work Week since Portland. She has contributed to a variety of areas including QA and l10n, and has lent her expertise to various projects which have included Firefox OS and l10n. At the 2014 Mozilla Festival, Manel helped flash some of the thousands of Firefox OS phones that were distributed at that event. At the Mozilla Work Week in 2014, she participated in the right-to-left (RTL) language pattern decision-making meetings and was also instrumental in testing RTL localization on Firefox OS. She was a dedicated Firefox OS tester and never hesitated when asked to help with testing. She also worked alongside the Firefox OS team and learned how to write Firefox OS automation.
Thank you, Manel!

Manel has been a community member of Mozilla for a while, but this summer as an Outreachy intern, she jumped in and made a big impact on the projects she was working on during the wild ride that is the prototyping/experimentation process of Connected Devices. Manel did a great job staying positive and optimistic in the face of uncertainty and the unknown, and was not one to back down from a challenge. She would go out of her way to attend and participate in meetings with her teammates in a timezone different from hers and showed consistent passion for the projects and people she worked with. Thank you for being a great intern and Mozillian, Manel!
