Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
I'm a 29 year old woman living in Canada and raised in a British-Canadian family. I live, work and love in downtown Winnipeg, in a wonderfully diverse community with people from all walks of life and backgrounds. As a Canadian, I acknowledge that I am exceptionally privileged, and that this privilege allows me to have a voice that is lost to so many. Yet, through this privilege, I have garnered an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, appreciation and understanding of the global community of women, and all human beings.

I began a university education focusing on international politics and human rights which had to be cut short, due to my meeting my spouse. He is a foreign national, so in order to sponsor his move to Canada, I had to leave school and begin work. The challenges facing immigrants and newly landed residents in the Western world is now something I feel exceptionally strongly about. I intend to go back to school and complete my studies, but for now, the world is my classroom.

I so look forward to meeting you all, and learning your experiences and sharing with you.

My Passions:
Politics, human rights, womens' empowerment

My Challenges:
Being far removed from the daily challenges facing the vast majority of people

My Vision for the Future:
Harmony, equity, education, and above all, prosperity

My Areas of Expertise:
Political analysis, empathy, critical thought

Hi Hayley,

So glad to have you with us on WorldPulse! It will be interesting to hear about your perspective in Canada. My husband is also an immigrant here in the U.S. He has had many challenges in the immigration process. Luckily my mother was able to help sponsor him and that eased his move here.

Anyway, to get you started...

I look forward to hearing your voice in the community!
