Introducing myself and my journal: Restorate tranquility by storm

About Me:
I am a 19-year-old ambitious lady and eager to make change even in the smallest way. I finished high school from Precious Blood Riruta, where I was the school captain, in 2011. I co-founded AZMA in 2011 for mobilization of the youth for community outreach. I was an intern with Akili Dada in 2012. I was a team coordinator with Be The Change-Kenya in 2012.I am currently a volunteer at Haki Water for water and sanitation as I wait to join university this year study either InternationaL Relations or Law. I sing in Jubilee Chorale and Covenant Choir as well as play piano to satisfy my love for music. I read widely to increase my knowledge and t enjoy each writer's style.

I like working with the underpriviledged as I can resonate with them having grown up in Mukuru slums in Nairobi. I offer the resources at my disposal; time, hope and energy. I believe that our small acts make a world of difference. The equalizer in every society is knowledge and I am passionate about getting to as many people as possible especially women and girls.

My Passions:
Community outreach, women and girls empowerment, music, sports, reading and languages

My Challenges:
Lack of finances to pursue most of the things I would like to do.

My Vision for the Future:
To be in a policy making position in the world so as to make policies that affect the African woman and girl child positively

My Areas of Expertise:
Community organizing

Ambition is good and we need

Ambition is good and we need more young women like you to dream of big things. To move things forward to transform this patriarchal world. Keep on moving towards a positive direction. You have sisters all over the world to think through with you, feel with you and cheer for you every step of the way.

Go..go..go Faith!

I am so happy you have joined us.

Your voice is vital to raising awareness of what is happening in Kenya. I encourage to apply for the World Pulse VOF Program. It will enhance your skills as an activist but more importantly, will connect you with other women around the world demanding women and girls have the same rights as men. It becomes an amazing support network of sisters, mentors and supporters.

I have seen first-hand how much each person's writing skills develop, their confidence grows, how they garner support for their personal projects, and how many went on to have their articles picked up by international media such as the BBC, CNN, and the New York Times.

I hope you will consider applying. The world needs to hear your voice.

In peace and with best wishes,
Janice
