Thanks World Pulse: I Was Right
Hi Ladies and world pulse team.
I just want to say Thank you, a big Thank you. During my time in this program I 've been empowering myself in a way I never thought I could. During my time in this program I have improved as a person, my communication skills have shaped better than before and my journalistic instinct is highly sharpened. I always wanted to write and I always had faith in the power of words to change the world, but now I'm living in it, breathing it every day.
Before joining this program I wrote in my blog and Web Islam magazine, some articles. I had less than 100 followers on twitter and 12 followers on my blog. Through the Voices of Our Future program, the feedback and wonderful energy I get from you: the other correspondents, team, my mentor and my editor, Thank you all of you because with your feed back, testimonies and support I've gone from a woman who wants the change, to a woman who is part of the change.
Through this program I have gained the necessary confidence in myself to knock on doors and show my writings: Since I started my twitter followers have increased and are deeply related to my issues of interests: writers, life coachers, politics, activists for women rights, muslims feminists, are now part of my world and all have gathered together to move forward to become the change we want to see; subscribers to my blog are now 529 people who receive my vision about gender related topics. I've checked the power of words to change the world, beginning in my own little world. I don't have any secret: Is what happen when you talk with truth, conviction and passion.
Women News Network (WNN) and Nurain Magazine (NM) are names of doors that have opened for my voice during this time. In WNN I collaborate with original articles and I am considered part of the staff of columnists. In NM my OP-ED will be published in Spanish and they asked me if I want to be part of regular staff columnists (of course I want) Today, "Furias" the only paper magazine In Buenos Aires specialized in gender issues and feminism asked me to publish an article I wrote about Political Violence Against Women in muslim countries for the edition of March 8th. (International day of women)
I know this is the beginning of a long way to be made of words. I want only to find my voice and say that each of you has your own. We can bear witness of change and be the change at the same time. When I started this program I said here I had a reason to believe: Yes, I was right, when you find your voice, the universe opens the ears to hear. I am very happy to see my faith wasn't wrong.
