As a young girl many thought I was too opinionated, I guess because I was always very quick to speak when I saw or experienced anything that threatened my person hood and reduced the value of life placed on others. Because I lived and grew up in a society that did not recognize women with voices I had a lot of challenges with a lot of people especially males.
As a young adult female who just graduated I came in contact with an opportunity that afforded me the platform and space to use my voice effectively. I was given room to make changes in the society through the power of communication and no one was going to still my voice again.
Ever since I discovered that I could access platforms that inspire and lead to change by the power of voice I have never let go of any opportunity to create change on any platform where my voice can be heard.
I joined this group having identified this space as another platform and avenue to speak up against all forms of Sexual and Gender Based Violence against women on a bigger scale and with a larger community and audience. I see this as an opportunity to gather more knowledge build stronger networks and share experiences with other individuals who connect with my own aspirations and vision.
I believe the opportunity here would lead to life changing course and dirrection for me.
