Introducing myself and my journal: Search for my inner peace

About Me:
i was born 25 years ago in a small dusty villlage in the sourthern part of kenya- former Machakos district. this is one of the semi arid areas of our country and erking out a living is quite hard. a large population of my community rely on relief food because rains are hardly enough.i remember the days when we would line up at lunch time in the village school to receive our portion of yellow maize meal without anything else.as young as we were, we knew that our fate had already been predetermined by the condition we found ourselves in,we had no hopes, no aspirations,nothing,as children would joke that we were consuming food (corn) mearnt for horses. that what we were consuming as our only food for the day was animal-food on the other side of the world, where that world was we had no idea.it is from this background that i have risen from. it has shaped me to be who i am today.i am the third born and the last of the girls in a family of six children. my mother is my inspirition by the meare fact that she was and still is the sole bread winner for the family.between my elder sister amd me there is a gap of six years.i grew up alone.by the time i was 8 my sister was already 14 and starting her secondary school education in a boarding school.mother worked fulltime as a school teacher and of course father was never present. i grew up being taken care by stranges.i cannot in any way blame my mother because as a woman she had to work. it is within this background the story of my life emerges.

My Passions:
travelling reading, warching doccumentaries and children

My Challenges:
growing up as an abused child and rising above the stigma attached to it.

My Vision for the Future:
to change the world in the minutest way by disseminating information that will ensure that there is no more abuse of women under whatever name

YOU ARE WELCOME!

Hi my dear friend,

I will really say I thank God for bringing you into our midst, this is where we learn to know more about our rights and are empowered to believe in ourselves. The power lies within us, to say NO or YES and to stand absolutely fro what we believe in, yes we believe in ourselves and the right to be who we want to be, the right to be touched by who we want and never to say NO when we ought to say YES.

We are here to assist one another and to be a source of encouragement to one another, feel free to pour out your mind, we are here for one another. One thing is certain, WORLDPULSE is the place to be, to speak without any inhibition, no fear no foe, we are one.
Love you Dannie
