Introducing myself and my journal: The Doors of Perception

About Me:
Hello! My name is Eileen but people close to me call me Candy. I've developed a passion for writing and even more so if what I'm writing has a purpose. I'm currently a soon-to-be 3rd year college student majoring in Journalism. I wish to help my community, country, and fellow women by bringing light to the truth. I live in the Philippines in a tiny little city called Cagayan de Oro city.

Aside from writing stories I also love capturing moments of serendipity through my camera. There's something magical about capturing a moment and keeping it forever. I love discovering new things and seeing the world I live in through my camera lens. I want to discover things, people, and events that I'd probably never notice with my naked eye.

So I guess those are the two things that I love doing - writing and mastering the art of capturing moments. The rest is me living a teenage life in a developing country. I have high hopes and dreams for my country to rise and I want to help through this. It's not only my country but other developing countries too.

My Passions:
Writing and Photography

My Challenges:
Overcoming my fear of speaking up.

My Vision for the Future:

My Areas of Expertise:
Feature writing.

Hello Eileen,

Welcome to World Pulse online community!
It is great to have you with us! Thanks for this very thorough description of your passions. I guess we share a passion for photography. Just like you I love capturing moments with my camera. I also like to challenge myself by writing something about the moment which will be as powerful as a photograph. I am still working on that!
Here you will find many women who have similar passions as you so start networking!
I hope to read you soon,

Delphine Criscenzo
