VISUAL PERCEPTION.....What Do I See?

VISUAL PERCEPTION.....What Do I See?

As a woman who enjoys and appreciates every seconds of her life, my personal vision is to make every seconds count and meaningful to me and those around me, my life vision is to make life better for other people through knowledge sharing, lending a helping hand to the needy, advocating for the cause of less priviledged women and youths etc.

My daily life activities revolve having positive impact on every person with whom I come in contact with; counseling and spending more time with young people, listening to their pains and gains, sharing knowledge with other women, especially with the disadvantaged women, mothers around me, valuing, maintaining successful relationships with my family, friends and Mentors, valuing my marriage and living a life dedicated to honesty, integrity, commitment and joy

To my community, I hope to be an Advocate on related maternal health issue. To be the voice of CHANGE for the disadvantaged women.

Presently, in my dear nation, we have got some crisis in the Education sector and this has grossly affected the performances of high students who annually write the West African Examination termed “WAEC”. Recent statistics shows that since 2008, there has been a huge decline in the rate at which students pass this compulsory examination. Hence, as a concerned citizen, I did initiate school-based mentoring concept wherewith young people are paired with young professionals within their communities with the sole aim of improving on their academic performances and morals. And, with the help of committed volunteers, we have been able to effectively reach out to some of these youths. My vision for my community and nation at large is to lead a National Mentoring organization to be reckoned with and a Force set up to inspire, empower and to raise cadre of purpose-driven young people.

I want to be a Voices of Our Correspondent because I know it is going to afford me the rare priviledge of reaching out to a wider range of women. Moreso, it is going to afford me the opportunity to meet with, interact and learn from women from all spheres of life and from different countries. I have got an open mind to learn from experienced personnel and I hope that this unique placement would afford me that priviledge too.

As an Advocate of Maternal Health and Youth Development Issues, being a Voices of Our Correspondent would help me achieve my dream of knowledge sharing with other women, and mothers. It is going to be a good platform for me to discuss issues affecting common women on the streets and most importantly, how the Anti-Rhd drugs for Rhesus Negative mothers could be made affordable for the less priviledged women.

If Vision implies “Visual perception” and interpreting what is seen. Then, I see generations of healthy women who are empowered and raised by WorldPULSE to effect positive changes in their communities and WORLD. -It's the WorldPULSE.
