She is coming ...

“She stands strong and majestic like a baobab tree. Though she is bent she is not broken, though the harsh African sun constantly beats her and threatens to sap her very strength, she remains standing. She never runs dry for her roots are deep and she is securely anchored in the fact that her roots are holding on to what really matters. She knows who she is, for she knows that her strength comes from her soul. Never let her scars fool you; they are not really scars they are deep rivulets of knowledge, ancient wisdom and insight. They tell of a story, her story of hope, strength, revival and resurgence. Whisper it to your neighbors, shout it to your friends, let the whole world know tell them she is rising again. Tell them she is gaining momentum and your all witnesses. .keep watch...Keep listening.. Keep applauding. Her name is woman; her name is you and me. Let us all flourish in what we can best and see the tidal wave of change overtake our communities.”
The desire to right a wrong, the desire to bring a smile to a sad face and the desire to bring hope has always fueled my passion for other people. All people are valuable no matter who they are, or where they are from and as brothers and sisters it is our duty to help others and to use whatever individual gifts we have to enrich the lives of others. It is my personal belief that “I am my brother’s keeper”. Thus my personal vision is to always use my gifts to enrich the lives others. It is my opinion that as human beings if as people we were willing to give to others the world would be a better place. No voice is ever too low to be heard.
It was with this at heart that l decided to start an organization called “No limits breaking the walls”. My desire was to break each and every wall that creates limits in the lives of people, through education and reeducating people’s minds. My personal vision through this organization is to impact the lives of the other women by inspiring them to be the best they can be and to use the gifts they have in their hands for the good of their communities. My dream of influence goes beyond my community; it is a dream to influence and impact the world on the whole. As a woman from a personal level, my personal vision is to rise above all the chains that bind me both emotional and societal just as it is my vision to encourage other women l also face the same problems.
With a mentor to help me express myself better and use the technology at my disposal, I am confident that all my goals that are merely dreams at the moment will become a reality. The mentorship would open doors for me that remain closed at the moment because of my lack of exposure and valuable links with other organizations. Thus it is my hope that each and every woman will learn how valuable they are and how the world is waiting for their input.

Like the tree

Hi myvalentinered,
Like the baobab, you clearly stand tall and proud and complete in your experience and knowledge.
You will no doubt reach break through the walls you see with your "No limits" determination.
