Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
I am a student of the world. Professionally, I have worked in marketing and communications on and off for the past twelve years. Intermittently, I have succumbed to my passion to travel and experience the world, with two 2-year stints teaching ESL abroad. At heart, I am communicator and am committed to using my voice and talents to serve the wider community, particularly in highlighting human rights, poverty, inequality, and social justice.

My Passions:
Women's Empowerment, Inequality, Social Justice

My Challenges:
Inadequate support for implementation and funding of empowerment programmes at the grassroots level; myopic view of change-makers in local community; Few opportunities/programmes for people willing to work at social change; limited training in advocacy

My Vision for the Future:
To help empower people in my community to see themselves as agents of change and to help them believe that they can make a difference, reduce the common cycle of inter-generational poverty and state dependency...

My Areas of Expertise:
Writing, Editing, Teaching/Training, Speaking

Thank you for the welcome

Thank you for the welcome Fatima! I'm looking forward to making new friends and new connections through this medium and also really excited about the possibility of developing my writing skills and finding my voice again.

Blessings,

I join you with a passion and gift of communication. And I agree that we need to see ourselves as "agents of change" before we can help bring about that change.

So glad that you have joined this thriving community at WP! Thank you for this first journal entry, as it gives us a peek into your life and who you are. It also gives others a chance to connect and respond, starting good conversation.

I'm happy to join this

I'm happy to join this community of women circling the globe, and I thank you, Michelle, for your post. This is a first for me in that I have never really joined any similar groups before, but, viscerally, I know that we gain strength and energy through our connections and so I'm looking forward to really plugging in to this medium to find and use my voice again in a positive way.

Blessings.

Truth.

I like the "viscerally" part!
