My Journey

Ana MC Budeanu
Posted July 26, 2016 from Romania

I wrote an almost 1500-word document until I verified and saw we should post only 200 words, so I'll attach the longer version as a PDF.

I come from a very poor and dangerous neighbourhood in Bucharest, Romania (Eastern Europe) where everything was scarce, including education. Because I come from a poor background and am part of a minority group, it was difficult for my family to achieve normal levels of education, so education and academic succes are very important to me.

I decided to use my educational background and my knowledge to help bring and raise awareness and create advocacy among women and men for women's rights, and to help women and men in their search for professional succes with my two small and voluntary platforms.

This is done mostly online and by community organizing. I hope to get more input and knowledge from World Pulse and its wonderful team and members.

    Hello ANAB,

    It is really great reading about you on your journey.

    Education is very important in any society. Despite growing up in a dangerous neighborhood you have an educational background, which is a plus on your achievements. It is a tremendous job you are doing by creating a platform where you are able to help both men and women in their search for professional success.

    No doubt you are in the right place, because world pulse is a place to be to voice out and have solutions to issues as it affects us all.

    You inspire me, keep up the good work.

    Dear Anab,it's amazing how you have decided to help men and women in your environment not minding your educational background.Indeed education is the  only way your community can be liberated from the shackles of poverty.

    Dear Anab,

    What a wonderful thing, to want to spread awareness on women's issues through education! I agree that education is the most powerful tool for enacting true, long-lasting change. It is through education that we open minds, allow for new perspectives and do away with mentalities that may be outdated or harmful to women or other oppressed groups. It's great to read about your work online and I hope World Pulse will help to equip you with  the tools you need to keep making a difference in your community!

    All the best,
