"VOF Week 2:(Journey To My Dream World)".

Do you think every person has stories in their life to share? I don't think so. I believe I don't have such special stories which I can share with everyone.

I am a simple girl with lots of dreams. Although people have the scope to fulfill their dreams. It is different with me. This believe was stuck in my mind before coming to the Access Academy of Asian University for Women. From my childhood I have desire to learn many things, but it was tough for me to find that chance. It doesn't mean I didn't get help from my parents or others. They have helped me in every possible way. It was quite different in connection with my wishes and dreams. When all those things were happening beside me I didn't look behind, I bear all my aspirations with great care inside me. I always prayed to God to get a single chance, so that I can accomplish some of my hope. My present life story is totally different from my childhood story. It is changing all the time. I like these changes. It give me strength to move forward.

When I was in High School, most the time I traveled by bus. In our country there are less buses which are only for women. It is rare to have seperate sits for women in every bus. Sometimes this situation make women uncomfortable inside the bus and it is really a problem specially for old and sick women. My thought is different in this case. I think if it is a problem for women in the same way it can be problem for sick and old man also. It is true that women need to think about their security. I accept it as truth, similarly I also believe that if a person herself is fair from his/her own side then it is easy for them to cope with everything beside them. They should be careful from their side. During that time I saw many women to complain if they do not have seperate sits in the bus. All the time they willingly show their incapability infront of everyone. Women, themselves make them weak. I don't know why they do like that.

At that time there were many questions in my mind. I feel to ask those to everyone, but I didn't get any specific one to give answer for those. I asked my mother, but she was also confused in some cases. From that moment I think that I need to do something to bring at least a little change considering this matter, but I had no idea what and how to do? My little mind can't think of anything how to start?

Even though I had all those difficulties still now I am trying my best to made some of my desire true.

As these entire ideas were moving around in my mind, I was looking for this type of program like "World Pulse". The first day when my teachers told us about this site I became so excited. I was waiting when I am going to join in this community. After joining in this team I am so happy. Works of women around the world inspire me a lot and I wish it will help me to come up with proper solution for the problems I saw in my country. Hope one day I will be able to spread this idea into the mind of every single women in my country.

This site is encourging me a lot to work for women in the world and also to help them in order to solve those unexpected problems they are facing in their life.

I hope to get all of your full support to fulfill my dream.

Are all of you with me? I hope you are.

Thank you

Hello Farah,

Thanks for sharing with us this week. I am glad to hear that you are able to reflect further on some of your thoughts and ideas through the PulseWire community. Sometimes, clear and satisfying answers to our questions can be very hard to find, and the path to women's empowerment is not a straight forward one. Only through working together, sharing knowledge, and believing that there are better ways for us to be as people, can we start to find solutions.

And in answer to your question,"Do you think every person has stories in their life to share?", yes, I believe each piece of the puzzle is as important as any other. And in reading your story I have been able think about some of the questiosn that you have raised.

Thank you,

Katie
