@Alphak911 You can learn about the process here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/Participants. We will list project ideas in a few weeks here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/2020.

Thank you mam.
I have gone through the process.
I know writing bots in python will that help in any way…?

It depends on what mentors are available; in some years, but not all, there has been someone interested in mentoring Pywikibot-related projects.

In addition to all the brilliant ideas already shared to you @Alphak911, you can also have a look at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/New_Developers to see which projects interest you the most and those in charge of the projects.

That is a good starting point into picking a project and it has many other useful resources you may need into beginning your journey into GSoC + Wikimedia! Good luck!
