MY PERSONAL VISION AS A FUTURE VOICES OF OUR CORRESPONDENT: Week 4 Assignment

MY PERSONAL VISION AS A FUTURE VOICES OF OUR CORRESPONDENT.

I remember when I wrote about my personal history in the week 2 assignment, I seized the opportunity to thank World Pulse for contributing in transforming my life. Sure, as a change leader and citizen journalist mentee, if I must work in shaping the world, then I must radically empower and transform myself first.
To connect with the Week 4 reflection, I would think loudly that my personal vision for my life, my community and the world are as follows:
- Have experts support me in developing my potentials for a greater insight and foresight
- Gain power from within me, that is, self-assured, self-conscious, self-determined and assertive
- Be apt in using Web 2.0 application tools effectively
- Face/confront my fears
- Learn more, engage in participatory information sharing and collaboration
- Make my voice echo around the globe, as I share my personal/work experiences and visions with others
- Connect with, interact with, support and network with women from all walks of life and status from various global women’s empowerment movements, to scream for social change
- Gather and disseminate personal life stories and news
- Seek new opportunities that will change women’s lives and lift our communities
- Learn, discuss, act and build positively
- Unite outstanding women in my community as catalysts for change
- Acquire and facilitate opportunities for me and my women’s groups to train, manage projects back home and assist others in their projects
- Exploit the World Pulse community as a Vocal Contributor, offering a helping hand, developing strong team skills and critical thinking, for a better future and
- Acquire the skills and knowledge I need to actualize and vocalize my visions for myself, my community and the world.

More so, I want to be a Voices of Our Correspondent, particularly, as it is a leadership programme.
My vision is to become a skillful writer and publisher in the near future. In other words, be engaged more effectively in creative writing; doing something out of the routine. Another dream I have is to create my own women leaders’ support group.
As such, only through this programme can I overcome my fears, interact freely and realize my dream. Most importantly, in this community, I have learnt that all opinions count. It is so interesting to see here that all ideas are heralded. This makes every contributor feel important, and so, can easily overcome.
Belonging to the Voices of Our Correspondent, I hope to develop increased visibility for issues and challenges faced by me and my community, to break down barriers in an emerging world.
When I eventually become a Citizen Journalist, I will gain extraordinary opportunities to access, actively engage with and drive global reflections for my dream world – a women friendly world!

Dear Leader!

I enjoyed reading about your vision. We are glad to have you here at World Pulse! You mentioned creative writing...do you mind if I ask what you hope to write of?

Don't understand

Dear friend,
Hello to you!
Can you be more explicit, please?
Yet, if I can attempt an answer, I wish to remind you that in WP you are your own writer, editor, publisher and distributor.
What an amazing way to develop and perfect one's skills!
Stay online!

Helping women

Dear Marah, what a complete and thoughtful article. Congratulations. If you could accomplish only 10% of your goals you would change the attitudes of everyone in Cameroon. I wish you well in this VOF campaign. Don't hesitate to start working on some of your goals even if you don't happen to be one of the 30 chosen. The competition is very great this year. Blessings,
William

Thank You!

Dear William,
Thank you for the words of encouragement!
I will tell you a story. In the year 1992 when I went in for the competitive exams into the National School of Administration and Magistracy (ENAM) Yaounde, I remember always that beautiful morning as I sat in the auditorium, looked around to read the anxious look on some 1500 faces competing for just 40 places offered my section that year. Foreigners were involved too.
Then, I heard an inner voice say 'Fear not, Marah, you can well be amongst the 40 needed'.
I tell you, it was the first time I wrote and made it in both written and orals.
I am a woman with a difference. I know my potentials.
Well, I must continue working as a WP leader, however...
Thank You!

Marah
