Thank you!

Hi Lanja,

Thank you for writing! I really like when you say, "Women make half part of society and they are a very important element their voice matters and their voice makes a change", and later, "if we cannot be professional writers we can be a voice in new media". While women continue to be underrepresented and misrepresented in traditional media, with new media we can each set the record straight and tell our own stories for we are all important. Great job and keep writing!

Warmly,

Emily
