Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
I am Wasana Bandara, a Buddhist girl from Sri Lanka who is thinking of making change of the community by raising voice by writing. Writing is an art of flowing words for me and is like a making a necklace using pearls. Combination of all the pearls give the beauty to necklace and so do the words gives value to writing. Then, start changing the word using pearls. It's hidden inside your mind!

My Passions:
Writing, and Reading

My Challenges:
Learning new languages

My Vision for the Future:
To go back to my community and retreat them for what I learnt from them.

My Areas of Expertise:
Biology, Nutrition, Literature

Hello Wasana,

Welcome to World Pulse online community and thank you so much for the poetic introduction!
I love how you compare words with beads. I love doing bead work and making jewelry out of beads and your comparison resonated with me! When you write, you are looking for the exact word to fit the bigger picture and make your piece look beautiful and perfect!
I am sure you will find many other women on World Pulse online community who would feel like you about words and pearls!
Start networking!
