Caught in the web of World Pulse "One man teach Five" workshop. Thank you trainer!!

Today was a wonderful day for me. I found myself in an interesting workshop session organized by Nakinti Besumbu Nofuru. I learnt a lot of things from there.

I learnt about the amazing woman called Jensine lassen who started world pulse at the age of 28 in 2003, beginning with a print media, and then an online media in 2007. My God, where on earth did this amazing woman bring this brilliant idea.

I learnt about the strong bond of sisterhood that exists in this media, high level positivism towards each other. In this training, I came in contact with an interesting discovery, that of knowing that of knowing that I have been a citizen journalist ever since. I discovered that making posts about breaking news on facebook, twitter, and other social media is enough for me to be called a citizen journalist. Bravo to myself!
I couldn’t help being happy when she talked about respecting journalism ethics, values, and being objective in my write-ups.

Wao! Writing a frontline journal was something she dwelt on in-depth; being on the frontline of breaking news. I now know how to begin my journal article with a personal narrative or first person account of events. I think I can confidently write in a more captivating way; drawing my readers to my article. Statistics and background! She told us it is very important to have it in ur article.

I found something interesting about writing for world pulse, SOLUTIONS – ORIENTED pieces. This is the best thing ever of World Pulse.

I am very sure I am going to benefit from World Pulse enormously. I am going to learn a lot from fellow sisters in this forum. I am promising that many will learn from me as well.

I will end by thanking Mme. Nakinti for taking her time off to lecture me about journalism and World Pulse. I love this forum.
