Web 2.0 is empowering me in countless ways In Quetta, Pakistan we do not have any institutions that can provide any latest journalistic tact’s, in my masters I was only taught the obsolete journalism course. By being a participant in pulse wire I will be the only one from my city getting this training and enhancing my journalistic abilities. On Saturday here in Quetta four female teachers were burned by acid attack and before any other media channel I posted it on my facebook wall. Now I am mailing NGOs and human rights to get help for the victims. I have also written a blog about it and I am trying to highlight the issue.
Spread the word out ladies and show the world that we can speak four ourselves and our helpless victimized sisters all around the world.
