Nothing Perfect and Nothing Impossible

This quote has always been kept in my mind since I was 13 years old. Many classmates always insulted me with the worst words and another bad memory is they said I couldn’t study high neither get a good job in the future. All these insult words came into my mind which I have never forgotten and my tear was flowing on my checks when I ran back home so fast. I didn’t even know that my foot got injure by the bubbled wire because it wasn’t so painful like a human’s insulting speech.

My mother said to me “You aren’t perfect but you are possible”. Since that I start to use the quote “Nothing Perfect and Nothing Impossible” to inspire me. From day to day I always try to study very hard to discover my life either avoid of being illiterate. Now I have a good job and I’m continuing my scholar Master in Development Management in one of Private Universities in my country, Cambodia, and I’m sure I will gain more knowledge to develop myself either my community or country.

I’m so excited to join PulseWire because I have never imagined that I feel so familiar with this community. After I got an email from Jade asking me to volunteer as PulseWire welcoming team, I immediately agreed and felt so warm to be connected with the women around the globe to share my own story as well as learn from them. It seems the first time for me to open my eyes to see the beautiful world where many women are making the world be the change. Until the VOF 2010 opened for the applicants, I was still not so confident to apply but I used my quote to encourage myself that “Nothing Perfect and Nothing Impossible” as this platform is also empowering me much to be braver and stronger to give my voice heard globally so I decided to apply for this wonderful jorney on PulseWire.

I’m just a normal ambitious lady who wishes to achieve many dreams and I’m now heading to my dreams. I feel that a good role model is sometime not only required to someone who has high education, thus she should be the one who has a talent and thought to help the others in humanity and now I’m a leader in my whole family with 35 members so the first stage that I want to develop is to help the young generation of my family to be literate. My second stage is to develop my village which has 72 families and poor rural areas by giving them loan with the smallest interest or the poorest people without interest; moreover, I want to stop the violent in their family (my village) where the gender is not equal.

So be it!

You were complaining of your Grammar, what if you are hundred percent, nobody on Pulsewire would have been able to read and understand your English Grammar then! PULSEWIRE IS ABOUT PASSION AND NOT GRAMMAR!
My dear sister, you cannot stop amazing me, if we are to be perfect we may not do anything but if we are just to believe that nothing is impossible, we can just start and everything will fall in place, that is just it. I wish you well dear sister and will love to read more from you....

Yeh so be it!

Dear Olutosin!

Thanks so much dear sister for your inspired comment! I just complained while my brain was wondering how to be a good writer. Thus I got an answer from you cos you encouraged me to forget about the grammar points as it is not so important like the passion. Sure I just think as the way my mother encourage me to try with effect to do s.th even I cannot do it perfect but I can do it a little is better than nothing.

Thanks again for your wish! You too....Good luck!

Thanks & Regards,
Sarvina

You are Perfect because GOD created you!

Dear Sarvina

I like your passion towards helping and changing your community . I like the numbers that you set your mind to target them in your life journey as numbers that you are concerned about as family and your village. However , within those numbers , you indicated gender inequality as important as you put it in the last line to emphasize more on its role that affect the latter numbers.

wish you best of all in all what you do !

Sincerely

Thanks Sahar!

Hi Sahar,

Thanks so much for taking time to read my articles either giving me a nice comment! Yeah everything I have tried so hard just because I want to help my family and my village. Not many people in my family are educated so now I just help to motivate my relatives to send their children to school even my cousins boy or girls. For the villagers in the my hometown, they are so poor and most of their children cannot go to school and if go, only son who can go to school because the school is so far from the village so they cannot allow their daughter go to school as they afraid of the gang harms their daughter. It is the reason it is so! And for my emphasize about the gender is unequal in my last line just because i want to motivate or educate the villagers about the gender. Some families always harm to their wives and some families they don't allow their daughters go to study at school cos they think daughters shouldn't study a lot, it is only son who should study as he will have a big responsibility in family. (That's why I want to mention about Gender is not equal in my village.)

Best Regards,
Sarvina

Nothing Perfect and Nothing Impossible

Greetings Sarvina, It was refreshing to read your story, and to get to know about your goals and dreams. They are very important to clarify in order to understand what you want to do in life. Let me encourage you to continue to build your network and press forward to achieve your goals.

I would also encourage you to read the statements in the round-table discussions at the UN Summit, as well as the Asian Development Bank last week in New York related to achieving the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. http://www.un.org/en/mdg/summit2010/debate/22092010.shtml

best wishes
