Introducing myself and my journal: My Sistas' Voice ( Her voice My Voice)!

About Me:
Hello everyone,

I am a 23 year old teacher of Mathematics , who is a young and energetic. I believe in the dignity of simplicity and the integrity of morality. My very colourful philosophy sates “give to others the best of you”. I live my philosophy on a daily basis as I am currently a teacher of Mathematics and the co-coordinator of the I'm Glad I'm a Girl Foundation. In our foundation we offers sessions which facilitates teen mentorship for teenage girls, ages 13-17 years from at-risk, depressed and/or marginalized urban and rural communities. Programmes include sporting activities, creative sessions, excursions, expos, large and small group sessions that are centred on effective career planning, financial education, technological advancement,sexual and reproductive health rights and economic empowerment that encourages the holistic development of a girl to ensure a valuable contribution to her family, community and society.

My Passions:
I have a passion for volunteering and learning new things.

My Challenges:
my challenge is to give girls in my country a positive public platform to express themselves.

My Vision for the Future:
Girls’ voices included at institutions, in media, at events and in campaigns. Provide girls with a platform to voice their opinions, and work with them to strengthen and amplify their voices

My Areas of Expertise:
mathematics, teaching, creating, and organizing

Welcome

Your "I'm Glad I'm a Girl Foundation" sounds wonderful. I am so happy you have joined us.

Your voice is vital to raising awareness of the challenges young women are facing in Jamaica. I encourage you and your students to apply for the World Pulse Voices of Our Future Program. It will enhance your skills as an activist but more importantly, will connect you with other women around the world. It becomes an amazing support network of sisters, mentors and supporters.

I hope you and your students will consider applying. The world is waiting to hear your voices.
