My Journey Begins
It has not been long since I have opened my account in World Pulse. I came across this community while surfing in the internet for the first time in 2012. I used to go through some of the stories from brave women from the places that I had never heard before. Seriously, it was more than what I see around and even more than what I have heard. It was more informative and inspiring than the beautiful blogs on how to put make-up on your face. The idea of powerful social media did not only inspire me to become a part of the community, but also made me excited to start raising my voice too.
I think World Pulse has not only provided a platform for women to speak up, but also has helped them improve their communication skills as a communicator. The idea of citizen journalism is completely new to me. I like the idea on how world pulse has managed to train us on the use social media as a medium to raise our voice together. Then, I started my journey as a writer for change. The encouragement that the fellow- members give me provides me strength to share my experience and my ideas. I feel lucky to be a part of this community. And I dare to share not only my voice, but the voice of other women in my parts of my country who are still in dilemma to choose their path of life. Like you, I want to share my ideas to make my dream come true. I feel my journey as a future social activist starts here. I not only share, but I learn and gain too. Thank you.
I have written a sonnet regarding my journey to the World Pulse. I hope you will like it: http://worldpulse.com/node/68943
Is it true that you learn more from your experience than from your book?
How it would be if you could feel being a woman from all the places around the world?
Here, you will learn and hear things that never happened in that nook;
Do you know that ideas and information worth sharing before they die old?
How would it feel to live a world of our own,
Where no one would ask you to keep your ideas to yourself?
Does not matter if you are white, black, or brown.
Speak up rather than keeping your ideas in the book-shelf.
It’s not only about learning, but giving as well;
Because others do care when you share.
If you want others to hear the bell,
You should never refuse a dare.
Lucky that you have now an opportunity to communicate,
Count not only your voice, but also of those who suffocate.
