My journey to Voices of Our Future

Prudence Chinemu Phiri
Posted September 18, 2011 from Zambia

As a journalist I´m always looking out for new platforms to serve my community effectively, to share my ideas, to be part of the solutions to the world´s numerous problems. In my search for new platforms, I landed onto World Pulse. I was searching for new opportunities for Journalists on IJNET when I landed myself onto World Pulse online. I visited the site, I read every bit of it with so much interest. Then I realized it was just the right platform I needed as a woman journalist, to add a solution finding voice to a billion women crying out in the wilderness. I later discovered Voices of Our Future training program, I told myself this could never come at a better time than now. I was inspired to join the Voices of Our Future training program because I realized it would enrich me with so much more knowledge regarding my profession, it would also empower me with leadership skills and enable me network with the rest of purse wire women and men, and in turn become a solid voice to the women and children in need. This was my inspiration to join Voices of Our Future. As a woman journalist I long to see happy women worldwide, women that are empowered with knowledge and empowered economically. I long to see women that will raise their children in the best possible way, with all the basic needs. That is my vision as a journalist, and there is no better platform to be part of the solutions to women´s misery than world pulse.

I can read the article and know about what you are and what you did. Good work. But it let me wondering how come such a beautiful voice, has come to be.

Diamonds need to be polished to shine at their best. What is it that polished you? How did you manage to go through the polishing stage?

Hugs my love!
