Silent Voices - The journey to trauma

Hawwah
Posted August 17, 2019 from Nigeria

Sometimes earlier on in the year, I signed on world pulse after meeting OluwaTosin.

I shared my story and how it has changed  and motivated me to do something, not just cry and whine.

And as a journalist, I figured the best way to do something is to speak up, not just to those who are willing to listen but even those who are not.

I realised that our voices together uunited for a common purpose is the only thing that will bring the change we desire.

I am honored to present the first in the silent voices series.

My name is Hawwah Abdullahi Gambo, and this is the silent voices.

Hello, Hawwah,

Welcome to World Pulse! You're in the right place to speak up. This statement resonates with me, " the best way to do something is to speak up, not just to those who are willing to listen but even those who are not". Very powerful.

Congratulations on starting this Silent Voices series! I agree with Hannah. Your work is very important. It's about time that silent voices should be heard. Thank you for sharing!

I am indeed humbled.
It would be my great pleasure to work with you.
I am of the firm belief that we women are the ones to bring about the most important change we need to see in our societies.
And we are better together not apart.
