About Me: I am a trained broadcaster by profession and an Activist by choice. I have worked with the National broadcaster in my country for 23 years and now work as Programme Coordinator IEC with a leading Women's Rights Organization in the Gambia - GAMCOTRAP. (visit us at www.gamcotrap.gm) 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. I hope I would learn to use new forms of media to enhance my journalistic skills and promote the voices calling for justice and peace to enhance the promotion of women's human rights in the development agenda.
