Introducing myself and my journal: Bonnie's Journal
Hello. My name is Bonnie Samuel and I'm very glad to be a part of World Pulse. I am an artist, live in the USA midwestern state of Iowa. My involvement in art has been life long and now I am able to devote full time to my creativitiy.
Career wise I've worked in politics (Democrat), for social action causes, been an business adminstrator and even a rancher! My interests and certainly my heart have always been with the issues that affect women and peoples worldwide.
I have a blog on my art website on which I regularly feature stories about the art of indigenous people's today, African Grandmothers using their art to raise funds to support this grandchildren and most recently about the photographic art coming from Tahrir Square in Egypt. I hope to add some of the things I see and learn here on World Pulse as stories to my blog. I believe that building awareness is key to building support and promoting activism.
