One voice , first week assignment .

As applicant i d like to know more on web 2. 0 , also on social media ,
it is first time i use world pulse even i am a member since 2010 as a friend journalist introduced it to me and told me to get registered and write my thoughts ,
he was very empowering himself and i might write about him in further journals .
Now that i am getting more involved and reading other women speaking their lives , their approaches , their struggles , meeting them online from around the globe i think it is a factor for spreeding knowledge .
Thinking the words : distance , communication , space and connection is an adventure , one can never know who / what is on the other side .
we want to walk toward it , and walking is a travel , and travel isnt only a feet movement .
it is a challenge to advance communication and dialogue toward openess ,
various voices are seeking spaces they want to be heard and recognised in their existence and being ;
Trying being informative , reporting stories , it is the right tool to create space for that and for communities seeking knowledge , recognition , solidarity , empowerment , and also leadership and self organisation (including me!),
i wish to learn more and getting the right skills to be an effective rising voice toward change and peace making and i think i can do that throught web 2.0 and looking forward for coming weeks classes with '2011 Voices of Our Future Applicants' .

Hi Maria

You are right. It isn´t just a feet movement. It is the movement of your spirit, that needs to shine a bit more through your words, like the first sunrays warming up in the early morning.

Good first article

Dear Maria,
I can't wait to see what you post in future assignments and what you learn through this experience. I think you are very brave for launching into this new experience and you will only get better at it with time. Just keep at it!

Your article is short, but it expresses a lot. Looking forward to reading more!
