VOF Week 2: (Through My Eyes).
I like to watch everything. Whenever I get time I look at the street from the balcony. I can spend my all day by looking at people and thinking about them. I have this habit form my childhood. When I started to understand that I am a girl and I have more obstacles than my brother though he is younger than me. I started to change my thinking and looking at to something in two different ways. One way was as a person and another as a woman.
I used to see other girls around me. I has been compared myself with other women in my community. Everyone has a narrow hope for a girl. My grandmother loves his boy grandchildren than me. My mother kept the big pieces of fish for my father. She did not eat without my father. I do not know, has he ever did it or not. My mother has a soft corner for my brother though she loves me and my younger sister. When I saw girls were walking to the garments factory, I started to think about those girls because I knew they had family, they had to cook, fed their family.
At my childhood, I liked to go the big fields to see that boys were playing but I could not because if any girls entered in the field everybody would laugh at her. I wanted to change that but I was too shy to be against my society. I ridded a little cycle but one day my mother did not allow me to use it. That time I did not argue with my mother. When I ridded cycle boys were looking at me so I also did not want to ride it any more. During my school time I used to walk to my school and I saw boys were standing adjacent to my school and teasing at me and my friends.
Whatever I experienced throw my eyes I wanted to change those. I eyes gave me vision and mission to change the way I see. Now I see many girls form many countries have the same mission, many people want same as me. I saw the AUW (Asian University for Women). Many girls from South Asia came here to change the world. Some smart ladies form developed counties to teach them. I see girls are creative they have the ability to get their rights. Those women encourage me to see my path.
One day my teacher announced about Pulse Wire at our assembly. I saw her enthusiasm and other student’s joy. Those moments lead me to watch the website. I saw other new path to see and experienced more. I started to walk on the path with many other women. Thanks God, you have given me the ability to see and find out the path. I am glad to be a women as well as a member of Voices of Our Future.
