(visit us at I believe in in the freedom of expressing myself as long as I can proof what I have to say. Working with grassroots communities my organization has served as a conduit to bring out the voices of women to the public as much as possible using the different media we have access to.

My Challenges: lack of access to the mass media where the majority of women can have access

My Vision for the Future: Women and men can confidently debate and accomodate divigent views in a democratic society
