My ongoing journey to World Pulse,
It is surprising for me that even if I was giving interview; I gained more than the interviewer herself.
I was introduced to World Pulse by Sunita Basnet, the World Pulse 2009 correspondent. We both are students of the Asian University for Women. I can remember once she came to me and asked me for an interview. I slightly accepted her request, but inside I had many questions of what she is going to do with my story, and in fact I was not wrong, it was my first time to give an interview and to talk about my past life story. Some days after she had taken my interview, she told me that she had put my story on World Pulse, so that I should read that once. I was really eager, to read my own story, as for the first time I could hear my own voice and could have many other audience who are also eager in my inner life voice.
Once I tried to open “Word Plus”, thought that it would be the place where she put my story. I opened an account in it, but was not able to find my story, so I asked Sunita “how to find my story in Word Plus?” She opened the “World Pulse” log in page, and asked me to type my user name and password, I tried but I was not able to log in and that was in fact because I hadn’t made any account in World Pulse, mistakenly I had made one in Word Plus, so then after talking to each other for a while, we came to realize my mistake and then with the help of Sunita I made my own account, the beginning of my journey.
I started posting my journals in world pulse, and I was indeed really surprised, happy and encouraged to get many comments back on my journal. Honestly, before coming to AUW and joining World Pulse, sharing my thoughts globally with other women was not my vision. I basically didn’t have any vision at all, but after joining the AUW and world pulse, I started to feel sharing with others globally as one of my great visions. Now basically, I am in touch with lots of other women across the globe, and even I am competing with them for the VOF, but still I am not considering as a competition. Because according to social analysis, we all women have somehow same identity, and that makes us together as well as stronger to fight for own rights for our unheard voices to be heard. This would be possible only when we have some delegates to represent us, but in fact the power is with all of us. When the VOF are going to be selected, they will somehow be a source of inspiration for us because we will hear them approaching for many globally occurred problems of women, and so that is not my, but our vision.
