World pulse: My answer!

I encountered World Pulse at a time I was searching for answers. Answers to different questions juggling in my mind. Most paramount of these questions was what my purpose really was, what my calling was and how do I go about achieving it? Being a Lawyer by profession and just finishing from the law schoool here in my country, I searched my heart for meaning, for purpose, passion and I couldn’t find any.

In my search, I resorted to writing. I wrote down my thoughts, my fears, questions and axieties. Words came pouring out from my head, my heart onto paper. I woud write effortlessly about my feelings and everything going on around me and would feel so much ease and joy afterwards.

Gradually I started finding answers to my questions. My words started carrying power. They started inspiring people and even inspiring me the writer. I saw an avenue to unleash pent up emotions whilst making a difference and inspiring others. I discovered my words were powerful and it fast became my new effective tool.

In the midst of all these, I came across Worldpulse through a friend’s blog. First was the standing up competition which I decided to enter for and share my story of standing up for my dream against all odds. I enjoyed every aspect of writing, posting and responding to fellow women’s comments and encouragements.

I thereafter realised that this could be my calling afterall. This could be the answer to my confusions and uncertainties. This could be my assignment; writing to make a change, writing to make a difference so I didn’t hesitate to enter for the Voice of the Future program. To go all out to join several women to put critical issues out there into the world.
I have decided to employ my God given skills to make a difference and better a life, a community one article at a time. I have decided to employ my pen and paper, my most veritable tools and make my voice heard.

Good choice

You chose the right place to go to, the place where women are agents of change in their communities through the power of the pen or should I say the power of fingers on keyboards.

@ EKG.. Thanks so much. I'm

@ EKG.. Thanks so much. I'm glad you enjoyed reading this. I hope to address issues as it affects women one article at a time.(As said in the piece). Perhaps I have started as I really hope some woman would read this and recognise her own potentials too. I hope a woman would look inwards and realise she has much more on her inside and stand up to pursue her dreams to better herself and in turn her community. The time for change is now and I'm so glad I'm on this path. You would sure read more from me. Thanks once again.
