Introducing myself and my journal

Posted December 9, 2010 from Uganda

About Me:Am a 25 year old female ugandan with a bachelors degree in Industrial and organizational Psychology from the prestigious makerere university, kampala, am not ashamed to speak out, not embarrased to share any personal experience, empathetic about fellow women that have faced violence in all forms. i can talk, i really do! but am a good listener - a counselor. Am a poet - although i have not published my collection. i hope to do a masters in gender and development once my son is old enough.

I am married with a wonderful 5months old son and i believe women are the backbone of this world. Men might be big achievers but its the women that bring them up that make them who they are...its the women that they fall in love with that change their lives, its the women that they give birth to that bring that humility and joy to their hearts - its the women!!

My Passions:poetry, essay writing, nature, travelling

My Challenges:having to work, study, take care of my son, and make my husband happy all at once

My Vision for the Future:to become a women activist

My Areas of Expertise:Industrial and Organizational Psychology - Human Resource

    Dear Amanya,

    We are thrilled to have you as a new member in our thriving community of women who are lifting their voices in the name of empowerment and connecting across borders to make positive change for women everywhere!

    I encourage you to take a look at the PulseWire Getting Started Guide to learn how to dive into the community, begin sharing your voice, and connect with like-minded women worldwide.

    This is a safe space for women to share, connect, learn, support and grow in the empowerment process together.

    In friendship, Jade

    Hello from World Pulse, Amanya.

    I act as a volunteer World Pulse welcomer for new WP members and listener for other journal entries. This is some of the most exciting and rewarding work I've ever done.

    I am wondering whether you have found any World Pulse efforts that really stir you to action. Our searchable site has so many examples of females empowering each other through education and encouragement, that there is bound to be inspiration for all.

    We'd love to hear from you again.

    From New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
