Introducing myself and my journal: EMPOWERMENT

About Me:
I hold a bachelor's degree, majoring in Economics and Management from September 2000 to December 2003. During my three-year study, I showed great academic attitude and intense interest in my major. I also hold a Master degree in Intellectual Property from August 2008 to June 2010 from Africa University in Zimbabwe. This program was jointly offered by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the African Regional Property Organization (ARIPO). I have also done so many professional and online courses which include; Internet Society (ISOC) Next Generation Leaders (NGL) e-learning training program with specialization in Copyrights and Intellectual Property Rights; WIPO/KIPO/KAIST- Korea Certificate in Intellectual Property Management for SMEs; Internet Governance Capacity Building Program specializing in IPRs and Access to knowledge with DiploFoundation.

Presently, I am a volunteer with Taking IT Global (http://www.tigweb.org). I am the Online Issue Editor for LGBT. TakingITGlobal's mission is to empower youth to understand and act on the world's greatest challenges. We use the power of online community to facilitate global education, social entrepreneurship, and civic engagement for millions of youth worldwide. TakingITGlobal also works with global partners – from UN agencies, to major companies, and especially youth organizations – in order to build the capacity of youth for development, support youth artistic and media expression, make education more engaging, and involve young people in global decision-making.

My Passions:
Traveling and working for underpreviledge communities

My Challenges:
Always does not have the menns to realise my passion

My Vision for the Future:
An equal society for both sexes

Women Weave the Web Campaign

Dear Aminout,

I was so fascinated to read about your volunteer work with Taking IT Global. I wonder if you would be willing to compose a piece about digital issues for our Women Weave the Web Campaign? I'd love to hear your thoughts about how technology affects your life and the lives of women around you. And your ICT work would be a perfect subject! You can find out more information about the campaign here, http://worldpulse.com/campaigns/www/how-to-participate It would be fabulous to have your voice join others as we think through issues around digital access in all its complexity.

By participating, you will be joining a global community of women speaking out on the importance of digital inclusion and empowerment for women. Your voice will be delivered to powerful decision makers such as government officials, leaders in the technology industry, and policy makers at international organizations. In addition to influencing global agendas, your submission to the campaign will open the door to incredible opportunities such as:

· Being selected to represent World Pulse at influential international forums. This is your chance to meet key players and make your voice count!

· Connecting and building relationships with grassroots women leaders around the world. Be part of a community of thousands of women speaking out on this issue!

· Exploring and sharing resources for your work on our Campaign Resources page. Find support for your initiatives from funding to volunteers and supporters!

· Getting your voice heard on a global scale! World Pulse will analyze and collate your stories to deliver recommendations to influencers and decision makers on a global scale.

· Getting visibility and support for your work. Your story could be featured on our site, included in an e-magazine, or even published by well-known media outlets!

And the 2014 Lynn Syms Prize will be awarded to an outstanding grassroots woman and visionary voice using digital tools to effect change and advance her community work. The prize will include a $20,000 monetary prize to be paid out over two years to support her community based work, a feature profile on WorldPulse.com, and an all-expense paid trip to speak her message in New York City. You can find more on the website, http://worldpulse.com/campaigns/www/www-women-weave-the-web-campaign-prizes

Welcome to World Pulse,

Welcome to World Pulse, Aminout.
I have great hope that the youth of today, with their access to and ability to use technology, will lead our earth out of the many messes they are encountering. It is a blessing that you are working to improve the educational efforts that enable empowerment.

You are now a part of a thriving grassroots network of women leaders and supporters from more than 190 countries. See the Getting Started Guide to learn more about networking in our community: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/about/guide

I look forward to hearing more of your voice in WorldPulse.

Blessings.
