Making a difference is what counts
Currenly, my hobby consists of raising awareness among people on how everyday nutrition choices can make a difference of health. To do that I have developed a blog in my native language (Latvian) - http://www.aannija.wordpress.com (facebook.com/annijasvirtuve), I am currently involved in "Eat Smart" project (https://www.facebook.com/edgudri, www.edgudri.lv) and I would also want to keep on developing the concept in an international level - https://www.facebook.com/Eathealthyfood .
Nowadays, heart diseases, obesity, diabetes and other health issues are among the illnesses that are the greatest killers, but very often the main reason of these issues is wrong nutrition. By developing these project I want to raise awareness among people in the society to make a difference in their lives and in the lives of their beloved.
Internet has empowered me to achieve the audience, to be closer to people who are suffering from different health diseases just by making the wrong choices in the shopping mall. Internet has helped me to find inspiration, the right people and even a new job, it has made a great difference in my personal life.
I am absolutely sure that online empowerment can lead to offline empowerment, because the Internet makes the greatest impact on the opinion of the society. By inspiring and educating people online it is possible to encourage them to be active offline.
In my opinion, the Internet is a great instrument for making a change in the way of thinking of the society thus it can make bot - a good impact and bad one as well. Women, in general, are more emotions-related and thus care more about the environment, about the health and future of the children, about diseases and overall wellness. By empowering women to act it is possible to make a change and to be the potential leader of the society's opinion.
