Dear Rachael, Scott and Correspondent friends,

I am still confused between the Front-line journal and Profile, I have already read month 2 assignment material for several times but due to my English limited so I would love to seek help from you all to give me more understanding about Forntline journal is.

1. Can I write Front-line journal about another person else? (I mean can I write about someone else like the last assignment?)

Or

2. Do I have to write My own experience including my childhood, education and work experience?

I am happy and thankful to all your comments! Thank you!

Love,
Sarvina

Dear Sarvina

First and fore most Sarvina you need to understand the world pulse voice.The worl pulse has four unique components.

1. worl pulse voice prioritises the woman 's perspectives - ie it allows you to tell the story of your community,or your family in your own words

2. Also this frontline journal is to be written with the intension not only highlighting problems but also offering solutions.

3. Again you are to write in apersonal way that will connect with human beings across the scope of the the globe ,so that the people who will be reading your work will get motivated and also it should motivate global leaders.

4. Finally your are a leader Sarvina by joining world pulse in this program ,you've proven that you can use your voice to bring change so this is potential change is needed in your community.

Moreover Sarvina i can say this is more like bringing news onto surface,breaking the new stories,check grad Ayobani' s frontline about casting her vote.
Go to your learning materials with Pixtel,Check with Monica for more verifications and explainations.Well this assignment is big,even looking at the suggested words - up to 2000 is not a joke.

I recommend tht youlook at the 4 unique components they are self explainatory,dont worry about structuring,write it now so that you hones can hone your voice well in advance.

All the best

My Thoughts

Hi, Sarvina!

Good job reading the Module 2 assignment materials :) I downloaded the material yesterday and I have only read through the first two sections so far.

From what I understand, the Frontline Journal is a combination of many elements. You decide which important issue or theme in your community that you want to share with the world, then you write about how that issue affects you. What do you see around you? How does it impact you? What do you think about the issue? It is almost like journaling or writing in a diary. So, yes, share some of your experiences that are related to the issue you decide to write about

You may also want to interview other people who are affected by the issue. It is also helpful to talk to people in your community who may be able to provide important information such as statistics, policies, and professional opinions on your issue. You would then incorporate this information into your story.

I hope this helps! This is such a great question and I had to review the reading material again to make sure I understand (I hope I do!). Thanks for asking!

Love,

SLaw

Dear Sarvina and Ruun

Dear Sarvina and Ruun Abdi,

Great questions and it is okay to be confused! The other Correspondents had some great responses to your questions, so I hoped their answers helped a little.

A Frontline journal is an article type that is very specific to World Pulse. It incorporates all the elements of our editorial voice. What we're asking you to do is to write about an issue or event that is important of you, and to filter this through your perspective. You should combine your personal narrative, but also include statistics, background on the issue. We want you to set this issue in a larger global circumstance. And it should be solutions oriented, as always! In the Frontline article, your voice and opinion on the matter should come through, but it should be backed up with plenty of background information.

Does this make sense?

Also, please remember that we will have the Module 2 Q&A calls on January 3 or 4 (7am and 9am PST respectively). You can bring all your questions to the group then!

Kind regards,

rachael

Cheers Sarvina!

Hi Sister Sarvina! I do believe you can expound on your involvement with the Soroptimist International. Your experiences in the SI will give you a platform to reconcile your community's issues with global awareness. Since a front line journal is a personal narrative, I think you have to put yourself in the write-up as the first person. You may refer to others as reference or sources of information, but your piece should say "I was there ...I am here ... and I'm part of this community as we journey towards (goals, objectives) .... "

I hope this helps, sister! We have come this far and we are here for each other.... all the best...

Always,
Emie Zozobrado

Go ahead, sister!

Hi Sarvina! You can make the outline first. You may start with making a list of the issues in your community. From the list find out what interests you most. Then reconcile the issues you have chosen with each other - how are they related? So you have the issues now .... what is your involvement in any or all these issues? How do you look at them, your opinion? What is making these issues the way they are now? How are these issues related to global issues? What do you think should be done or should happen in the future? So on and so forth .... I know you can make it, sister! All the best...

Always,
Emie Zozobrado
