Introducing myself and my journal: Life within a woman's heart.
I have been familar with World Pulse since it first made its online appearance. I was excited to see an organization that focused on the needs of women worldwide. I am slow to the task. I am a trained journalist, now freelancer, as well as former human services worker. I think the two areas fit neatly together. I have also worked in US and international not-for-profit organizations. I am also a Christian who believes that demonstrating advocacy for women who suffer oppression in the world is more than just a wish. I have a lot to learn about the complicated systems in which women are born into. But through the information, resources and stories provided by World Pulse, I believe that I can learn and grow in my understanding as well as discover the best way that I can be advocate.
