Let us come back a little bit to my past. I feel like my family and I have always lived in a lot of troubles. I was poor and my classmates did not like me. There was a time where my both parents lost their job. As we lived in my grand mother's house, after her death, my aunts and uncles wanted us to leave the house which was their inheritance... The biggest trouble was when my mother was imprisoned for two years for a crime she had nothing to do with. And the saddest was when my mother died two months after her release. Those are just examples of the troubles I have had in my life. I have to admit that sometimes I felt really tired but one thing that my mother taught was never to be discouraged, never to give up. So I believe that “failure is not falling down but refusing to get up.” And here I am today, stronger as either. I believe in a better future. Though I do not know how the future will really be but the thing I am sure of is at any obstacle, I am ready to stand tall.
Concerning my community, I want to believe in the new generation. I want to believe that they will bring change, positive change. I want to believe in peaceful and brillant future for my community. I want to believe in real justice. I want to believe in more women awaken and taking part into all of these great changes.
The first reason I wanted to join Voices of Our Future was my passion of writing, web 2.0 and citizen media. I did not have the opportunity in my life to really learn how to make a good writing and about citizen journalism. The time I have spent here on Voices of Our Future and Pulse Wire made me realize a lot of greater things. I loved the unexplicable nice friendship I have with all the members, the interesting experiences we have shared, the encouragement we have given one another. I have a lot to share to my community. Yet I have a lot to learn. I believe that Voices of Our Future will help me in achieving my goals. My first interest is helping my community to get knowledge and education. One of my concern is also about women in prison and how their rights are respected so no other woman can experience what my mother had. I do not know if I would succeed in this last. I would like to be the voices of my community who is still sleeping, or maybe too much silent. I believe that Voices of Our Future is the greatest way to start.
