Asking for feedback on story idea

Hi all correspondent friends and WP teams,

I really need your help as it is so hard for me to decide between the two women activists whom I have planned to interview for my assignment month 1. Would you mind giving me some ideas?

1. School Director & Human Right Activist in Cambodia - She is so amazing, I love her work. She has opened school for poor young people for studying and she has spent most of her life to help Cambodian women youth.

2. NGO Facility - She is a young talented lady who is from the poor rural area in Cambodia. She has helped many young and old women how to help their lives. She has tried with effort to empower Cambodian women and girl..Her work is inspiring me much.

I'm waiting to see your comments and feedback!

With all my love,
Sarvina

Difficult

Wow Sarvina, it is a difficult decision, now I see why you ask for help. From the outside I can see the young talented woman could be a good interview as she is young and has already as you said helped young and old woman. That is amazing indeed...

Oh wow!

I totally agree with Vivian and Martha. You have a tough decision to make indeed. Both women are empowering, powerful and inspiration so you need to find the one you can relate to? Ask yourself which job is the most difficult through your eyes and which one would you take and why then start raising that voice. Whatever you decide, we will all be happy to read about each of the two women. All the best and I am looking forward to reading your post.

great...

Hi Rudzanimbilu,

Of course it is hard for me to decide coz they are so amzaing and their jobs are the most interested work which I love and always wish to do it. But it is really sorry coz I don't have enough time to interview both of them but I hope I could interview two of them then post in my PulseWire journal. Yeah that's really true as I need to find the one whom I can relate to as soon as possible, so it will be easy for me to decide to start writing my assignment before due date.

Really thanks for your ideas! I'm also looking forward to reading your post too....

Best,

You're so lucky, sister!

Wow, that's truly an amazing luck, Sarvina! I think you don't have to choose because you can actually write on both of them, in separate entries. Remember we have 4 writing assignments and the profile is just the first one. You can pick one now and then the other one in succeeding works (Module 2 is a frontline journal and Module 3 an Op-Ed). Maybe one for the profile and the other one for the feature story (Module 4). If I may suggest, the young talented lady from a poor rural community in your country would present a very interesting profile on her struggles and feats, while the School Director and Human Rights Activist will be a good subject for a feature story, highlighting the impact of her work, achievements and vision on women empowerment.

Go go girl ... you're an amazing young woman and there's no stopping you now! All the best ...

Always,
Emie Zozobrado

Sarvina's picture

Yeah i'm lucky!

Hi sister Emie,

Thank you so much for your idea!!! Yeah I will do interview them both as you said we still have other assignments so now since the young talented lady is much suggested from the others so I decide to write her profile first. How are you sister?

Cheers!

I'm real fine, Sarvina! I'm also working on our Module 1 writing assignment for now. I have a long list of women who are so far away from where I am! You see, I'm in the "big city" and the women of substance are out there where they are most needed ... 500 miles away, in my own impoverished and war-torn homeland down south! Anyway, I have sent e-mails and the one considered the busiest of all already said Yes! I'm thrilled, because the only problem now is to schedule an interview ... All the best ...

Always,
Emie Zozobrado

Let's go

Yeah that is really good that we should start our Module 1 writing assignment from now coz not too long, it will be the due day. Well sister, I called the one (Young Lady) whom I have planned to interview and now yes she said Okay so I have to wait till next week coz she works in the province. I'm so happy that she agreed to let me interview. Wish you best of luck with your interview!!!

If I were you

Hi my dear sister
It was a good question and hard to choose since both are truly recommended. For me , I would liker to hear more from the second one . She might have challenges and success at the same time. So if I were you I would choose NGO FACILITY though I feel sorry to lose the first wonderful one.Good Luck!

Hi sister NI NI AYE!

I hope you are fine these days. Yeah it is hard for me to choose for my 1st assginment while I'm thinking both. But now I know whom I should interview for this module 1. As your suggestion and other friends are NGO Facility so I have already contacted her and she said Yes and she will be available for me next week.

Thank you so much for your idea in choosing the writing angels! Wish you all the best for your 1 writing assignment!!!

follow your heart

Dear Sarvina,

After reading those two ladies' brief profile, I remained understanding very well the reason why you reveal your uncertainty for your assignment interview. As both of them are very impressible, it is not easy for me to give a clear judgment. Just follow your heart! I believe you could manage the best.

If you have time and possible, I think you can interview both of them and one is for this time and the other is for your next assignments or separate post. I am interested to read about both.

With Love,

Yeah follow my heart

Dear Shwe,

Thank so much for your comment and idea! Yeah it makes me feel hard to decide to choose to be my assignment angel while I am thing both are good. After I posted to seek some ideas so now I have decided whom I should interview first. And yes I will interview both of them as they are always in my mind..and I will find another time to interview another one for my next assignment. Really thanks for your idea Shwe!!!

Wish you best of luck with your 1st assignment...

They are both great! Play the game and choose one! have a little fun through your journey. "Never lose your childish enthusiasm and things will come your way." (Movie quote from Under the Tuscan Sun) ... This was the first thing that came to my mind when I read your post.

Follow your intuition. There is nothing to loose and there is everything to gain.

I agree with Emie, Use both

All the best Sarvina :-)

Dear Sarvina,

It's really a difficult decision to take, as Emie and most of the team suggested take advantage by interviewing both and use one of them for this assignment as you keep the other for the upcoming assignments.

Best of luck my dear,
