Our Voices Matters

I was Born in République Démocratique Of Congo. South Kivu Uvira City. I never heard the word Equity in my community, we were feed the poison to believe that Women we're Inferior to Men. Yes we grew up with that mindset that we always inferior to Men. We were born to listen to them and do everything they want. At the age of 25 that's where I come to understand Tha we were living in Gender Based Violence. I was very curious to read more on the law of human Rights and all human being are Equal. I realised that I was going through the same abuse in my marriage but I could see it as normal your partner can do anything they please with u. In 2018 I have decided to walkaway from that traumatic relationship and the community sees me as an abomination woman and shameless who was agaisnt her husband he cannot follow what the husband ask her to do and what to not do. But they judgements couldn't influence me to go back to my perpetrator. In some activities in the church I cannot do because I break my marriage yes they still discriminating me because of that. But I just decided to live with my 1 child I have than being influence by the community I have to live for my life not for them. Whenever they see me associate with other women they will tell them I will influence them to break their marriages. Despite that I never stop standing for other women who needs my help of advices and educate them on Mental Health and Human Rights.

My vision is to become an Equality Ambassador, Empower Women and Girls to become independent and follow their Dreams and passion. I want to see myself as a pillar for another women to achieve her dreams. Standing for Equality and promote Equality.

I want to see the law of human Rights Applicable around the World. Women should not left behind anymore because we're Equal to Men and we can do anything that Men Do. I have to much to share on my story and my experiences I hope one day we will meet and disclosed the rest of my story to sisterhood. I want the support to achieve my Humanitarian Music around the world.

Hi Gloria, that is so brave of you to stand up for yourself when everyone else was not supporting you. You are a great example and hope other women in the same situation find strength in your experience.

Hello Gloria,
Thanks for sharing your story. I have always advocated that women should leave any toxic relationship, its not worth it. Once any relationship takes a violent turn it is always better to stay out. I admire your courage and thank you for being an advocate for other women. I pray for strength to continue to move ahead.
Much Love

Greetings Gloria,
It is sad to read the many stories on gender violence, inequality and too many to add here constantly going on in the 21st century worldwide. Until we are educated and then reach out to teach education to boys and girls we all I agree are not moving forward.
I am happy to read your story on your choice to leave what does not benefit your life to create a better on for yourself which is never easy. Keep striving positively forward to achieve your dreams and don't let negatrons stop you.
Congratulations,

Mama Queen
