Introducing myself and my journal: Daughter of Destiny

About Me:
I am a Daughter of Destiny, who strongly believes in restoring the lives of the woman and children in our land.lUnearthing the potential that they have within.I am a living example of a woman who has endured the most amount to abuse,rejection,torment and everything that we will not wish upon our worst enemy.I remained a broken vessel who had the task of raising a child on my own.I felt as if the world was high above me and I couldnt even reach the surface to see the light.Until I started realizing the amount of potential and selfworth I have,it was then that I took a leap of faith and came out of my shell.I vowed that I would make a differance in someone elses lives.Discrimination,abuse,manipulation,is and will be a thing of the past when we extend our hands and lives to helping people around the world,take back what is theres.I will not and cannot sit back and watch people suffer,child trafficking,domestic violence,etc etc - an absolute halt on that one.We are woman who should speak one language.Lets take on the world Woman Of Virtue.

My Passions:
peacemaking,unearthing the potential of people.Reading,researching

My Challenges:
Language barriers have posed a problem in more of the rural areas,it has been indeed a challenge to win trust of woman and children who have been abused in the very rural areas.b

My Vision for the Future:
Open the eyes of the stranger to see that there is no condemnation to see that woman and children get what belongs to them and that is dignity and pride

My Areas of Expertise:
communications,excellent people skills,training on service excellence,ability to relate to all people of differant cultures,

Wecome to the community!

Dear Jehovahjirah,

Hello and welcome to the community! It sounds like you have overcome many obstacles in life, and I am so glad you are part of this community to share your experience and knowledge, and encourage others as well.

It looks like you have a passion for researching. What kind of things do you like to research?

Language barrier is definitely a challenge! On the bright side, I've seen art and music break that barrier and bring people together. How many languages are there in South Africa?

There are plenty of women here from South Africa in particular that you might be interested in connecting with, and they're listed here: http://worldpulse.com/user/directory?country=36

If you would like some additional tips on making the most of what our site has to offer I encourage you to look through our Getting Started Guide, available here: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/about/guide

I look forward to connecting with you in the future.

Warm wishes,

Jennifer

GOOD TO BE BACK

Hi Jennifer

It has been very long since I have been on site. Much has happened. I am particularly interested in young marriages,,,, this must stop, my signiture which I hope is displayed is..young girls see themselves through our eyes.. it starts with you...i hope one could look at it and have a strong conviction. I have been dealing with a group of young rather mature group of girls that have started off a club, uniquekidsunited... i think it is amazing, there has been poetry as well as a lovely short story that was written. I would appreciate it if yo could channel me in the direction for making major contributions towards this fight against child marriages......

if you like i can share their club message...

awaiting a reply
