Since childhood, writing was a mean to express how I felt and what the world is facing, it was through my poems or essays or stories or diary. Though I studied mass communication and journalism in my college, the regular reporting job never excited me. Instead I wrote articles regarding youth, discrimination, inspirational stories for the local newspapers and some magazines. I wanted to do something better, that wouldn’t only be helpful to my job but something that would represent many, that would inspires many.
After knowing about the blog from a friend, I started blogging. But I was unaware of the term web 2.0. Thank you pulse wire, knowing the term web 2.0., has given me the different powerful view that I had never experienced. It just amazes me how the whole world can come together in one place yet living in the different part of the world. I have read 100s of stories in the pulse wire and 1000s of women issues, and that is heard globally via web 2.0. It has shortened the distance between us. When I receive the comments from Ema from Indonesia with the mother’s love for me and when I get inspiration from a girl from Kenya or when I see a man raising voice for women- this is what web 2.0 excites me about!
We have already seen many women on pulse wire whose voices were heard and many have found the helping hands. Our world actually began when human being started communicating. And after being in pulse wire it has made my belief stronger towards the value of communication on how women can be empowered by it. Many people are inspired to do many things in the world but "to be inspired to actually live valuable life is what very much preciously matters and web 2.0 has done the same thing for me and 1000s of other women around the world". Women were aware of what was happening around them yet they were silent but now women are not only aware but are actually fighting against all the obstacles, all the discrimination and putting their hand together to create the bias free world. Through web 2.0 they are not only empowering themselves but with them they are empowering many women around the world together-like I am.
Before pulse wire, I was only reading how many types of women issues there are in the world but now, it has given me the platform to actually know how these women are suffering and how they are biased or how they are sacrificing themselves in the name of culture or religion and it has also made me realize that yes I’m not only raising the voice but with that I’m inspiring many women to fight with their own weaknesses and giving the power to face those issues. It has enabled me to act locally and think globally through the learning and sharing with the greater knowledge!
I am actually being alive in real now!
