Ladies Lounge, Whatsapp group to gather Ladies: Ladies Lounge (1/3)

Ahan! So some people can get confused by looking at Whatsapp group and Blog Page Screen Shots. Here, let me elaborate the logic behind posting these two photos.

Whatsapp group is representing my asset, my mobile; I have made Ladies Lounge group for Ladies where they do talk relaxing and fun but also well-acquainted with my street harassment campaign. Whatsapp being a popular mobile application for immediate text messages can be used effectively for conveying messages. I am also a member of many groups on Whatsapp where I keep on posting my campaign, So, my mobile is a resource which I am using to step forward my campaign.

Secondly, the Blog page, yes, online webpage and social media are the tools to spread message rapidly and remotely. Blog page posted here referring to my Laptop, which is my asset. True that, blog page can be accessed by mobile but blogger.com web interface is not mobile friendly due to which I have to use my laptop to login in to my blogger account to make posts. Furthermore, it is a tool on which we have open hands of writing big stories and articles and then posting it easily by just click of seconds.

The third is my Communication skills, confident communication skills. Yes, one need to be well-equipped with guts of communicating message. Blogs, Social Media, Communities and Groups can be just channels for sending the message but the important and core resource is to have the skills to create a message to be sent on communication channels. I am blessed with good and confident communication skills and good interpretation skills as well which help as two hands to provide advocacy in the community.

I hope, I have written it in easy words and am successful in selecting my best personal assets and resources for facilitating social campaigns.

Hello,

Your work with the ladies lounge has similarities to what We do with girls voices, we create a safe space for girls to feel free and share their stories. Your use of whatsapp is encouraging and very thoughtful. well done on your achievements and wishing you the best in those ahead.

Dear Shumaila,

Thank you for sharing your learning from your experience mapping your assets. It is amazing how you use various digital communication platforms to advance your work. And reading your post, I could feel your passion for this in every expression.

Your 'Street Harassment' Campaign is very creative and addresses an issue that is very important in our societies, yet overlooked. And digital media is such a creative and effective medium to communicate your work and reach a wide audience. I commend you for all the amazing work that you do and I celebrate your unique passion.

Love,

One thing I seem to have trouble with is hearing my own voice played back to me or even seeing pictures of myself because I always find something wrong with it. But here you are bravely choosing photos of yourself and finding great examples of what a GOOD job you are doing. We could all learn from you about how to examine our own strengths, own them, and stand in our own power. I'm glad you have found so many ways of broadcasting your voice!
