Feedback for My Module 2 Story Angle

Hey, ladies,
The core of my passion as a community leader is anchored in women empowerment through education, I therefore aim to take this as my story angle and warmly welcome your views on the same. I want to write about my personal experience in pursuit of education in Kenya. Am interviewing an educationist in my community to get his views about educating women, and also parents who are for or against education as a human right for girls. I have also lined up girls who support or oppose the necessity of their own education.
What's your take on this? Thanks in advance.

Empowerment through education

That's very important issue, Phionah! Education makes girls more confident and gives many ways for self-realization. If you want to narrow a little bit the angle, maybe you can speak about some obstacles that you or others face in Kenya, maybe some cultural prejudices or other. And you are always the best example how to overcome them.
Good luck, Phionah! Looking forward your post!

Hello Phionah,

I appreciate that this is always a personally important issue. I like the idea of including those opposed to girls education. It is important to ascertain the opposing viewpoints arguments as this supports us in formulating a tenacious debate when presented with it in the future.

I am SUPER curious to read the opposition. I would do some research that supports the economic value add to educating a girl. This will add more substance to your story.

Best of Luck!
