Be that Voice

Women traders

A man dream is his greatest potential if well utilised, as child growing in a nation comprising people with over 250 languages and various religious beliefs, blessed with vast resources but marred by administrative problems.
Growing up a Nigerian is a great experience and I always love my nation, especially the region which I came from the South-western part of Nigeria (Oyo State).
I have always hope to be a renowned person, whose name will stand to be remembered when I exist no more, that was my vision as a child though I never know the journey of life that will make me realise this goal but yet I still feel like I'm going to succeed someday.
I really wish to be an agent of change to my Family, Community, Society, my country and the world at large.
by age my age and status today, my vision and mission is to be a voice for the Nigerian women who across Africa and ages of existence have been seen as one that must serve a man for the whole of her life without rights or option as to wants and desires. I want to be a human activist, a freedom fighter or peacemaker by empowering the powerless socially and economically because "it is only a stable mind that cares to know his rights"
I really want to be a voice of our Correspondent on this Website because I will have the opportunity to tell the story of a Nigerian women especially those at the rural community, where most women are the practicing farmers producing most farm produce but yet do not even have rights to own a land in some customs, while some others will have to hand over the profit of their sole labour to their husbands who drink all days without going to the farm to help them or take care of their babies while they are at work.
I really want to be a voice because there will be a change on the way global women are suffering when they know their rights, speak out for it and know when and how to find succor. Being a voice will give the opportunity to get to women and encourage them to speak for themselves by educating women on how to use the media, community radio, interactions, the internet, meetings and other social community meeting and network channels to discuss on issues affecting women and find ways to press home for them.
Being A Voice Correspondent will enable me achieve my dream by empowerment through education, resources access, interaction with women from other parts of the world and seek solutions to issues similar and those of diverse situations respectively.
The duty of being a correspondent is not just about reporting but also entails the ability to widen ones scope, knowledge, understanding and acquisition of more skills in all spheres of human life.

Wanna be A Voice that makes the Voiceless speak for themselves,
Not just a voice of the Voiceless

Thank you for sharing

Ennygirl,

Thank you so much for sharing your vision. I hope you are able to find ways to be a voice for the voiceless either through this program or other means. You've made a great step by articulating that aim and letting your voice be heard here on Pulse Wire.

In friendship,
Jasmine

Hi Ennygirl, I hope that you

Hi Ennygirl,
I hope that you are able to realize your vision and I'm sure that participating in this program is one step closer in that direction. I especially liked when you said this:
"Wanna be A Voice that makes the Voiceless speak for themselves,
Not just a voice of the Voiceless"
This is very empowering, not just for you but for everyone who's voice remains unheard.
Best wishes!
Stephanie

You are that voice

Ennygirl,

Your passion to help others by serving as a voice, will do more wonders than you could imagine. Your words and actions will serve as motivation and inspiration. Please keep up the good work, by being a voice for yourself and others. You are surrounded by good women and you experiences of women’s struggles are sure to lead others to create change.

Blessings to you and those you help!
