raising my voice, finally

Isaura Diniz
Posted July 8, 2020 from Portugal

Hello, my name is Isaura Diniz, I am a 17 year old student from Portugal, following humanities studies (everything that has to do with languages, literature and I am feminist.

To be very honest, I am not here to share a life story regarding my experience as a woman in our society (at least for now), I am here to share my thoughts and dreams with you, because until now, I never found a commmunity like this one and I really hope I can connect to amazing people here, on "World Pulse". 

As a young person, starting to understand myself better everyday, I become aware of the issues that bore me the most on this day and age and I am completely sure that my path in life is staying connected to feminism and I feel free to say that my biggest dream is to one day be apart of a women´s rights organization and give speeches on this topic (at the moment I love to turn my school presentations to that side of myself, always educating my colleagues and close friends on gender equality, toxic masculinity, sexual violence and so on...)

I am looking forward to associate myself with all of you, I still do not know how will I be able to have an impactful voice on my professional career, but I believe that just by sharing some words today, was a big step.

And to you, thank you for sparing some time reading this, I hope you are staying safe and happy.

Hello Isaura,

Welcome! You are definitely in the right place, and you have made a big step. I wish World Pulse was around when I was your age:-) I can't wait to see more posts from you, and to learn more about your big dream(s).

In the interim, you may want to follow, and even reach out to, other young World Pulse trailblazers who will help you feel right at home, and inspired, too. Here are a couple that I thought of off the top of my head:

I hope you'll bring even more young women, and all women from Portugal, for that matter, that would love to be heard and inspired, too, to World Pulse!

Dear Isaura,
World Pulse welcomes you with open arms. We are safe here and the sisterhood is amazing. Have you found an organization to join in your area? I wish I can invite you to WEAVERS, our women's organization in the Philippines. We are very far, though. Hope you can find one in your area.

Keep writing!

In sisterhood,
Paulina from the Philippines

Isaura, Hello:)
Firstly, at only 17 you write very well in English, a second language in your country. Good on you!
I think it is wonderful that you are quite young and tuned into issues in your world, and have a dream to work towards. I look forward to how much you will grow as you continue to educate yourself on the things that you care about in the coming years.

Well done for taking the initiative to look for a place you can belong. I hope that you will feel that you belong:)
Cheers x
