Writing about Liberia

Tags:

As I continue to set-up my profile, I wanted to share some of the posts and articles that I have been writing about my experience and research of Liberia, West Africa. Below are the links to my blog and two published articles about various topics.

"Climate Change: Focus Liberia, West Africa" http://www.liberianforum.com/Articles/Climate-Change-Focus-Liberia-West-...

"Liberia: What happens to the Child When Adoption Fails?" http://www.theliberianjournal.com/index.php?st=news&sbst=details&rid=1198

Thank you,

Heather

giving a voice to Liberians

Hi Heather,

We are thrilled to have you as a new member on PulseWire, especially as a woman in Liberia who is speaking up for the people there who have no audience, who have no voice at the table. You are an incredible writer and I enjoyed reading parts of your blog, as well as articles you linked to in your journal.

I encourage you to use PulseWire as a place to gain worldwide exposure for your writing. PulseWire is the newswire of World Pulse and stories here have been picked up by leading news agencies. We have African members who write breaking news as well as opinion articles on what's happening in their countries, but we currently have no member reporting on Liberia to our community - so your voice is urgent!

I encourage you to utilize your PulseWire journal as a blog to address our growing community of nearly 3000 women who are lifting their voices in the name of empowerment and connecting across borders to make positive change for women everywhere. We are happy you're here!

Below is another Liberian member that you might like to connect with.

Mrs.Oliver Johnson
Executive Director, Woman and Youth Empowerment (LUYCD)
