my fight

fatma maleta
Posted October 23, 2019 from Tanzania

hi im fatma maleta from Dar es salaam Tanzania. I am second born and i come from a community where there is lots of limitations , rules , everything feels like its set for you from your birth , people think they know what you want , how everything is supposed to be for you.Turns out i hate following what those rules are so i just started speaking out more .Girls cant do this , cant do that i bet everyone has heard that .I believe that girls and woman are magical, beautiful , and full of dreams and things to explore.We have been tolerating for years starting from my grandmothers , everything has been set for us , the cultures , laws ,rules  everything but i refuse to accept cause i know what i want , my hopes ,dreams , no one knows me better than myself and there is no limitations for success.The only limitation we all have is ourselves . I have found my purpose and it has led to unimaginable destinations at a very young age , i am doing things not even elders have achieved and if someone is going to stop me i just have to fight back.We do not need empowerment cause we already have it within,we are the so called empowerment  , use your voice , your strength , your journey and darling you will see how you can fly .Women are the world, beautiful, precious and rare .We are the foundation of life itself so dont sit around while there is so much in you.Its actually a sin not to use what we have been given and settling for less than we deserve .Hope my story inspires you , thank you

Hello, Fatma,

Welcome to World Pulse! It's a joy to know that another voice form Tanzania is rising up!

You are such a strong, smart, and determined woman. You know what you want, where to go, and how to get there. Truly, a force to reckon with.

I love what you said that the only limitations we have are ourselves, and empowerment is already inside us. Truly motivating. Thank you for sharing.

I hope you can form connections with our sisters here. Please continue to write your stories here. I'm curious to know what is the purpose you mention in your post. Looking forward to reading more from you!

Have a great day!

Hi Fatma,
I am inspired by your comment that "We do not need empowerment cause we already have it within, we are the so called empowerment." That is a profound perspective and one worth considering. You clearly have a strong vision for you life, and I wish you all the best as you continue to navigate your way through society and life.
