Introducing myself and my journal

My Passions:Immersing myself in the places I live and work. Writing, photography, film, dance.. any way to find and share stories. Freedom.

I am a researcher at an international research organisation based in Malaysia. The main focus of the organisation is fisheries and aquaculture research for poverty reduction and food security. The work is more diverse than it sounds, dealing with issues as wide ranging as human rights, health, good governance and empowerment of women, aswell as environmenta and sustainability. Through my work I have been fortunate enough to work in many countries in Asia, and also in Africa, and I have learned so much from the people I have encountered. The more I travel, the more I want to share the stories of the incredible people I meet who are invariably just going on with their daily lives, but so often with so much dignity and humility, often in the face of hardship.

I'm excited to be a part of Pulse Wire, as I'm bowled over by the contributions I've read so far, and hope I can also bring something to this global community.

I'm looking forward to reading more of your stories, and hope I might also share some of my stories with you.

Hi Natasja,

We are thrilled to have you as a new member in our thriving community of women who are lifting their voices in the name of empowerment and connecting across borders to make positive change for women everywhere!

I am interested to hear more about your work and the specific project that you're working on in Malaysia. It sounds like an incredible organization that is changing lives on all levels of needs. We would love to hear your stories!

I encourage you to use your journal as a place to further introduce yourself, your work and your passions to the PulseWire community. Think of your journal as a blog, where you can speak your mind and reach an audience of over 3000 women and supporters of women's initiatives. I think that you will find PulseWire to be an exciting place to garner support, make connections and share your story!

Also, I'd like to invite you to participate in a new writing opportunity to be published in World Pulse Magazine. We are asking women around the world to tell us what Land means to them.
