What most excites me about Web 2.0:

Web 2.0 gives me an opportunity to speak for my self, let my voice, ideas and experience be heard worldwide and also gives an opportunity to connect with other women worldwide who inspire and promote empowerment.

Solutions I think Web 2.0 brings to the global women's empowerment movement:

 Emergency of grassroot women leaders  Online and Internet Trainings on journalism and stories writing skills  Promotion of freedom of speech by letting women speak out their minds  Global connection of women which can lead to project(s) formation and developments , business related skills (employment opportunities for women)  Evaluation and track of record of all issues related to women and leadership basing on the facts on the ground (women voices posted here)

How is it already, or how will it be empowering for me:

 It has given me a platform of raising my voice  I have learnt and still learning more of the internet technologies on online trainings and procedure  It will help me connect to other women around the world who will be my first circle of change, I will learn more from them as they learn from me too.  It is my first step to continious women journalism and a member of the women empowering community(ies) at a global view.

Thank you!

Hi there, you really compiled some good thoughts and ideas here. I hope you will very much enjoy connecting with all these amazing women here on PulseWire, learning from them and also making yourself heard. This is a great place to speak your mind! Have a beautiful day, Andrea

Thanks Beatrice

I believe everybody has the potential to live a better life. Given the Opportunity, Education and Motivation ANYONE can become someone admirable. Nobody is a NOBODY, everybody is SOMEBODY.

Thanks for your complement! I am hoping to share more on my life experience, witness on women issues and cultural points of view of women in Africa and lots more. Thanks once again.

Hi Beatrice

This is a really well presented and convincing argument for the possibilities of web 2.0. I agree completely with your observations of web 2.0 being a valuable platform for women's voices and I am excited to see the sparks of motivation and action such a platform can potentially inspire.

I look forward to hearing more of your work and your voice

Many thanks for sharing
