A Renewed Hope
Writing my first assignment feels like a déjavu. It was a year ago when I first joined World Pulse and applied for the 2010 Voices of Our Future. Though I have not been chosen among the 30 applicants to take part on the training, I still feel blessed and honored to be a part of this community. I know there are still more to learn.
Honestly, when I learned about the opening of 2011 Voices of Our Future, I felt so excited to be a part of it once again – an applicant who is willing to learn, discover and improve. Web 2.0 motivates me to continue on my blogging and utilize social networking to interact with people all over the world on matters of intelligent discourse.
Through this medium I am able to tell stories of my country, the everyday crises, the struggles of the people living in our society, the fight against corruption, clamors of my Muslim brothers and Sisters for self-governance, the most debated reproductive health bill in the Senate, and many others.
I believe that the people I am going to interact with in this site will give me broader perspectives on the possible solutions I can contribute to my country. By sharing my stories and making a difference would make me an empowered woman.
