Le gain de l'internet, un outil irreversible de plaidoyer

La technologie de l'informatique nous offre des avantages extraordinaire, avec cet outil j'ai ameliorer l'ortographe de plusieurs mots en francais, mes connaissances et relations ce sont elargies d'une maniere incroyable. Je voyage et contacte le monde entier avec cet outil, je m'adresse a des hautes personalites, les chefs de l'Etats et les grands bailleurs de Fonds et encore a un niveau tres eleve. Je parle et hausse ma voix tres haut, je fais de recommandations qui interessent, je parle et je suis ecoute, j'en suis fier et c'est doit etre une femmes activiste , visionnaire et aspirante a un changement. Je partage mes idees avec les femmes et les hommes du monde. Quand je suis devant mon ordinateur personne je pense aux changement mondial , le monde doit etre juste et fournir aux femmes une telle opportunite qui ameliore nos vies. Devant mon ordinateur je n'ai pas de soucis; je sens par contre que les problemes des femmes sont resolus.

The internet advantage, an advocacy tool that's here to stay

Information technology offers us extraordinary advantages; with this tool I improved the spelling of several French words, my knowledge and relationships have grown an incredible amount, I travel and contact the entire world with this tool, and I speak to prominent people, heads of state and large donor institutions and all at a high level. I speak and raise my voice loudly, I make recommendations that others find interesting, and I speak and am listened to. I am proud to be a woman activist, visionary and person who is hopeful that change will occur. I share my ideas with the men and women of the world. When I am in front of my computer, I think of world change, that the world should be fair and give women the opportunity to improve our lives. In front of my computer, I have no worries; instead I feel that women's problems are resolved.

So inspiring!

Hello Ntakebuka Wilhelmine-

Your story is so wonderful because it speaks to the core power of the internet. From basic things such as improving your spelling to having the ability to address heads of state and major donors! I loved your words - "When I'm in front of my computer person I think of global change, the world must be fair and provide women such opportunity that improves our lives. Front of my computer I have no worries; I feel that by against the problems of women are resolved."

Best of luck to you and all women!

In love and peace,
Terry

Hello Ntakebuka Wilhelmine,

I enjoyed reading your story, especially the last part where you talk about sitting in front of your computer and seeing a world that is fair and with women who lead improved lives and their problems are solved. It would truly be a great world if that would come true. Please continue to speak out and share your ideas.

Best wishes,

Kristina
