WEB 2.0 THROUGH MY EYES

The first time I logged into the World Pulse website, I knew I had found a home, a community I had been wondering if it ever existed, a community where girls and women interact and share issues about their work, culture, challenges, how to cope with these challenges and over all agree that women and girls all over the world have a voice that needs to be heard.
I am truly excited about all the tools in Web 2.0 but the fact that I will be a Citizen Journalist really is interesting to me as I have always longed to write about girls and women issues in Nigeria through our experiences and this training will set a good foundation for me to use the internet, circulate and build a community that I will feel comfortable to interact with.
Web 2.0 contributes immensely to giving girls and women a platform to interact, share experiences and learn from each other ways to build/improve the Global Women’s Empowerment Movement, it has given girls and women a voice where their achievements and challenges are hardly documented for people to read and over all it empowers girls and women with fantastic writing skills which is a powerful tool to create change in any community.
Web 2.0 provides fantastic tools for girls and women to write and circulate stories that represent their voices, who we truly are; Advocates for Positive Change, The Violences that Women and Girls face in our countries, our Achievements, Challenges and how we strategies to support each other through it all and this inturn strengthens the Global Women’s Empowerment Movement. It serves as a platform to mentor young women who are eager to be part of the Global Women’s Empowerment Movement.
Web 2.0 empowers me with skills to create articles of my choice and the feeling of being heard and having a safe space to interact comfortably talking about who I am, my experiences, my ideas without fear knowing I have sisters who understand makes me feel empowered.

Hi Emyeyo!

When I saw the World Pulse program I have the same sentiment as yours.Am really interested to join and what i say to myself Wow! it may be the answer to my long wish where i can share my ups and more down experiences and reaching what i am now- a Wounded healer.It is the venue where I can express my views on what women should be upon the wrong and unfairly tag/dictate by the society.What hesitates me at first is that am not that good in english for me to communicate well., but of course in our own native language Filipino a big YES I can.

KUDOS !

Hi Adelma

Hi, luvly to hear from you and good to know we share similar feelings. In Nigeria, girls and women are the least educated and having a group of educated women around that are willing to share their skills to enhance our ability to Roar About Ourselves Loud is fantastic and WorldPulse has given us that platform and the opportunity to do so; I am more than grateful. Though I may not understand your langauge to read it but the most important thing is.....we are able to say it the way we felt in English, Philipino, Spanish, etc and there will be no more criticising, no silencing and no backing down. We move, We change the world and We conquer. Go get it Sister!!!!
