YOUNG ACTIVISTS

Olutosin
Posted June 23, 2009 from Nigeria

Friends,

There are two young women I will love to interview. One is a lawyer while the other one is an accountant turned activist working for women and youth.

The lawyer is a petite lady working as a pro bono legas service provider for the pulic defender, she strike me so wel on occassions when she had been assigned to follow up cases of sexual violence on kids.

The accountan turned activist is a lady from the Eastern part of Nigeria who works tirelessly on women and youths, she is undeteered in her efforts, though these ladies are not rich, they are spending there meagre resources on the society.

I have boked an interview appointment wih the lawyer for Thursday 25, of June and the activist who is the Director of Eagle Eye for Saturday 27th of June.

I welcome comments from you all.

Thanks!

Hi dear Olutosin!!

I would love to read about the first one! It would be interesting to know her motivations to give this service... that's at least, my humble point of view

Let's see the other girls opinion! Regards from Mexico ! Xs

Are you going to interview both?!?! Even better!!

And yes ... I am online ... its 6am in the morning in Mexico and I still without any sleep.... I have to finish a text for a magazine, I am writing a long (and interesting article) about the women in Mexican kitchen and their magic power of tradition in our ancient gastronomy

I just wrote a general msg for all of you (few minutes ago) because I have been not so much in touch ... I hope to come back to the group properly in the next weeks ahead.

And FOR SURE!! I would love to talk to you in Skype soon ... really!! We can try to work toward something good together, don’t you think so?!

Love. Xs

Olutosin, this is not easy as I believe that they would both provide compelling interviews. I am fascinated by the first one as she can provide her all of her services for payment yet chooses to donate some of her time to help the silent victims of sexual abuse. She obviously is very passionate about this cause and has a strong belief in not only speaking out for these children who cannot speak for themselves but to also prevent their abusers from abusing again. I would love to read her story as it is obviously not enough to help the victims; she is also a fierce advocate for justice.

The accountant's story would be one of compassion and self-sacrifice which I also believe could be a strong interview. What motivates people to give everything they have, to help others?

Whichever you choose, I am sure it will be a wonderful read. Best wishes, Janice

Hey there,

They are both interesting!

I really like the lawyer. It's really wonderful of her to provide pro-bono services, only a few lawyers do so. I also think that sexual violence/abuse of kids goes unnoticed and is usually underreported. It's also more common than we think and it's damaging to all societies. I would love to know more about the kinds of cases she gets and how she helps out.

I'm also interested in the account. Ask her about her career shift. How did it feel? Why did she switch job? What inspired her to do so? They seem like great women! Good luck:)

I like how they contribute so much even though they lack resources, they are a living proof that we can all make a difference even if we lack the resources. Mabye they can give us tips!

Olutosin, you have no need to pray that the interviews will turn out well as you are such a beautiful and articulate writer. Your "best" has provided us with such interesting and compelling insight into your world, and it is always a joy to read your journal. I can't wait to read your next interviews. Best wishes, Janice

My Dear Friend,

There is one thing I have learnt to understand, here no one flatters and I am used to you all. I love your comments and will always work harder to show the stuff World Pulse is made off.

Love You Friend
