A Louder Voice

As a global citizen and a practicing journalist, I endeavor to become the voice of the voiceless, the downtrodden, the marginalized and the discriminated against in our society. I stand as their bridge to communicate their sufferings and pain to the world and expose their adversaries' criminal acts to push government to eliminate gender based violence. I have meticulously worked on this direction by writing GBV stories in print, online and advocating for these works even to the extent of face to face engagements with people whom I know can help in pursuing equal rights for all. I work for this cause simply because I myself am a victim of sexual violence, and right to the core, i understand the pain and suffering and the discrimination that similar women face. I am their own voice but I dared to speak louder.

This is the prime reason that I pursue to become a "voice of our correspondent" in Worldpulse. The platform that wordpulse use allows me to connect to a wider network, pushing me to speak louder and assuring me that there is a strong support, love and kindness from people out there. I can draw strength from them. I can draw strength from you. And in unity and strength, our stories can send positive ripples of change around the world.

Daring to speak louder

Dear cscabrido:

Your words are so clear and so strong, and the role you have chosen for yourself - to be a voice and advocate for the voiceless - is so vitally important.
Every word and phrase in your story was so vibrant - I can see that you are a gifted journalist, and one who also has the gift of 'speaking truth to power'.
I wish you strength as you continue your important work. I know that your words will become ever more powerful as you continue this work.

Best wishes,
Rosemary

Voice of the Voiceless

This is a very courageous role you have taken on and I wish you all the strength to follow through as it is an important role. Pursuing equal rights for all is so important and the more you can share with others, will only open up the awareness. Thank you for sharing your personal story, I feel that in doing so, it makes you even a more powerful journalist.

Kind regards,
