I am my voice

My voice is firm yet gentle, truthful and courageous, and ever inspiring.

I want to be a correspondent because I value every woman as I value life. Every woman’s voice is my voice. As a correspondent, I will be able to share my life, struggles, triumphs, and vision as well as trade my country, its people and culture in a loving and fulfilling exchange of ideas, lessons and values with those of my sisters worldwide, and amplify our one voice as we journey towards women empowerment.

Honest, strong, solutions-based journalism will help my community to move forward to progress and empowerment in a well-balanced, well-informed and positively focused pattern, at a pace motivated by fair judgment, with a harmonized relationship strengthened by sensitivity and sensibility, as we reach out and strive to keep pace with the world.

And you are my only one!

Amei, you are my only sister in Maldives! One day we will really share one table ... in your own Maldives or in my own Philippines! We are not just voices, Amei - we share one heart, one soul. All the best ...

Always,

I am so glad...

I am so glad that you are sharing your beautiful voice and strength with this community and eventually the world. I am looking forward to watching even you grow more powerful with your written word and impact this community and beyond.

Thank you, Ruth!

And I'm real honored having you as my mentor, Ruth! It's such a blessing I have someone like you standing by me through this amazing journey ... and, of course, beyond ...

I saw you online today... I said "hi" and you went offline. I've been chatting with William Cleek on reaching out to Sarvina. He said it's bedtime and went offline, too! This is such a funny and thrilling experience - talking to someone 14 hours away from your biological clock!!! Catch up on you some other time ... all the best for all of us...

Always,
Emie Zozobrado

I was so sorry!

Emie....

I was so sorry I missed you on FB chat. I heard a little 'beep' but didn't know where it was coming from. I looked at my Skype, which has been open since my friend showed me how to use it and didn't see you or anyone there. Then later I saw the FB tab flashing 'new message from Emie'! and I missed you!

I am still trying to find my way around in WP..... what I have been doing for the last 2 hours. I finally had to use a link that Rachel sent to find the learning material and am looking at it now. I couldn't find it in the WP site itself at all. So when we talk you can let me know how you have accessed it.

Anyway, I am chatting to you on this reply when I should send you a message instead.

MISS TALKING TO YOU!

Ruth

Ruth, I did have a hard time locating the link to the online classroom. And then I remembered that your first message to me after I was chosen as one of the VOF 2010 correspondents contains the link to the site (that was the message from Rachael introducing us to each other which you forwarded to me. I tracked it down my mails, and lo and behold, I found it! Actually, I have downloaded the materials and printed it into hard copies for easy reference at home. I just visit it on my mails when I'm on my office PC.

Warona has the same problem, too. I think she was not able to access her mails right away because at that time when the mails were sent she was confined in the hospital because she was bitten by a scorpion. I talked with her on Skype after the group call last night on how to find it. Actually, it is embedded in the group account of VOF 2010. I think it can be accessed through the Pulsewire group directory. I will try to check on how it works, but that was how Rachael instructed Warona to find it.

Anyway, we have lots of chances to catch up with each other ... I am right here ...

Always,
Emie Zozobrado

I found it!

Hi Ruth, I found the link! It's embedded in Pulsewire. You just press the Pulsewire button, choose "group directory", then search for 2010 Voices Of Our Future Correspondents, and presto, you will be staring at everything this program is all about. At the bottom of the page there are links that will lead you to whatever you want to know. I have to share this with Warona as well ... all the best for all of us ...

Always,
Emie Zozobrado

thank yoU!

You are wonderful to help with this! I am going there now and hopefully will never have to dig through to that email to find the link The funny thing about the email that Rachael sent is that the link didn't work for me. And when I asked Rachael, it didn't work for her either!!!

Thank you my dear Emie!

Well, it happens all the time! The information technology is like magic, it misses and freaks out at times! Such a good thing Rachael is always there, on the rescue all the time like 911 ... wa ha ha ha...
