Here we go time to fly with my new wings me and world pulse

Well my story with world pulse is kind of nice and short I came to know about it through (AWID).
I checked it quickly but in that moment I loved it bookmark it and thought I will come back for me it seemed a nice community working for women empowerment.
When I return and for the record it was in the same day when I got home I then heard "Unita Basnet" telling her story and introducing herself in that moment I make my mind that I want to be part of this community and then I came cross voice of our future I knew then it can be my opportunity to speak up and let my voice heard.
Since I am working with women I always coming cross stories and life experience that I fell a shamed that no one will know that those women ever exist and because I have the knowledge and skills of ICT and web 2.0 I am always thinking how can I help in making different.
So for me learning how to express my thoughts and knowing how to reflect what I see and what is going on around me to the global community.
I know I have my own very unique voice all I have to do is to learn how to use it because I believe that working with other to do things the final result can always be better and different.
In my work as information office in a Sudanese Women Center and mainly working with women and their rights as human rights and working with women from Sudanese Women Empowerment for Peace (SuWEP) it's great honor for me to work with such women movement stand for peace and say no more for war.
World pulse gave me a chance to view the world from different angle.
I used to introduce myself as a Sudanese girl, a girl from one of the biggest countries in Africa now I am not sure if I will be able to say the same in the future.
For me the coming phase of my country is challenging and I expect that we will be facing a difficult phase in our history and I am wondering will women have impact on this.

Hi Ola, I really like your

Hi Ola,

I really like your reflection.

In response to your conclusion, "For me the coming phase of my country is challenging and I expect that we will be facing a difficult phase in our history and I am wondering will women have impact on this.," I think you are already having an impact by being a part of VOF 2010 and also by expressing your unique voice.

I'd be interested to hear what some of the current challenges are for women in Sudan. I have some knowledge of the country, but not enough to know.

Beautiful to meet you,

Claudia

Hi ola.mahadi,

I don't think it can be very easy to stay positive given what you hear about and face every day, but you have done it! I love the story of your finding World Pulse and being so inspired. Keep on talking - you are great!

Hello

Hi Ola,

It's great that you have the opportunity to represent the women in your community and tell their stories as well as your own.

I checked out AWID website you've mentioned in your article. Looks like a good website. I think I will use it for my research papers.

Thanks for sharing your story. And thanks for fighting for women's rights.

Cheers,
Jenn
