No woman should fear that she is alone. Even if you are in a dark place fighting against violence, hunger, poverty, addiction and illness, at least, you should know you are not alone. Pulse Wire provides this wonderful network that connects women around the globe and make us feel that we are part of something bigger than our everyday struggles. Reading about other women experiences and efforts to make this world a better place makes me feel whole again and encourages me to join them in this fight. I don’t face poverty, I am not a victm of violence. But I witness this in my homecountry and I know I can help. How? By sharing our stories and experiences, by providing information and helping to connect people.
I particularly have a strong bond with mothers. I am a mother myself and I carry along the job of raising a human being. I do not question myself only about the world I will leave to my children, but the children I will leave to the world. It does not matter who you are or where you are, we have a job to do: raising citizens. In this journey we would fell like we are alone and incapable, but we are not. My goal as mother and journalist is to provide reliable information about motherhood, education, women health, children rights, women rights and culture to, little by little, start encouraging other women and, specially, to make them feel important and confident about this huge responsibility that is raising another person.
My goal is to spread the word as far as I can to and inspire other women to do the same: share their stories to become part of this big worldwide community that wants to empower women. I don’t want to be just a mother or just to be a woman. I want to be a citizen and, like many women out there, help to end violence, poverty, abuse and the feeling that there is no hope for for me, for you. Together we are strong, we become one.
