Introducing myself and my journal: Nomadix

About Me:
Hi everyone,

Its been already 5 years since I set myself on the road searching for woman made knowledge. I ended up writing a dissertation about my quest, a quite lengthy paper on feminist epistemology, a piece of work as indecipherable to many as my gesture of leaving my home country was to my family. By the way, I'm Romanian. I was born in a poor country at the periphery of Europe, a place that in spite of its extreme contrasts enjoys some of the benefits ( especially those connected to crossing borders rapidly) of being part of the EU elitist machine.
These days Virigina Wolf' wise words resonate best with my own feelings of belonging " As a woman I have no country. As a woman I want no country. As a woman my country is the whole world". For now Im trying to find a better language in which to express my knowledge as a nomadic woman, a more subtle way in which to talk about the amazing women that I meet all the time and more daring words in which to express injustice and pain.

My Passions:
reading, salsa dance, collecting interviews, hiking, collage

My Challenges:
be a useful and truthful human being

My Vision for the Future:
a joyeous world of independent women

My Areas of Expertise:
feminist philosphy, education. women's rights activism

Hi Irina

Welcome to PulseWire! I think you will enjoy the stories and friendships brought forth by this community, and the borders that are taken down by the format of our communication.

Although I was not born in Romania, I spent over seven years of my youth there--my father is Romanian. My memory of it is very dim, and of course as a child my parents shielded me from many of the difficulties faced. I lived in several different towns and cities though, and am so grateful for the experience of living outside of just one nationality. This world would truly be a better place if we didn't use borders to define and divide ourselves.

I look forward to learning more from you.

Regards,
Daniela
