The reason I have to be chosen
I never got up one morning to decide that I am a journalist. I think I have followed a path intended to advance.
I started in 2004 effect in my school as a presenter of cultural evenings. At the end of the year and after getting my degree, several senior principals came to court me so that I frequent at home. But my aunt with whom I lived at the time I was almost convinced that there was no future in communication and enrolled me in first year of management at the University of Douala. But I do not feel my heart beat for this track so I dropped back to 2 years later, on my own studies in communication at the same university.
Meanwhile, I could move on. Trained facilitator and the RTM radio journalist, a local station, manage a program of youth in that station. Attended a workshop with RFI in the festival MASSAO female voices, one with a BBC journalist, a workshop for young journalists with the Francophonie, animated programs, held blogs on the culture ... Anyway, so much which allowed me to believe that this path was mine.
While visiting the site www.tig.com I came across the announcement of training. I naturally followed the link and I came across this wonder, a community for women journalists and animated by hundreds of women worldwide. I was amazed. And when I learned he had to go through the selections for the training on web2.0, I thought I give myself fully to benefit from this training. My biggest dream is to own my own cyberpresse and I know that through training, I could improve some data that I would not necessarily with the eyes of the uninitiated.
But above all, I was amazed because with a click, I could talk with the great names in journalism female that I had the opportunity either to read or listen. May well benefit from their expertise.
The discovery of the community has changed my way of seeing and understanding the future. Now I know that I can achieve my dreams as a woman but also as a woman journalist. And although I'm not selected for training, I gained a lot because I expanded my circle of acquaintances.
