Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:Hi all, I am interested to join this forum to discuss gender, human rights, development and creativity. I have worked in different aspects of both human rights and development for six years and I have also studied a master’s in law and development studies. My work has taken me to many parts of Latin America, and most recently to Egypt where I am currently based, carrying out freelance writing and research. In Egypt at the moment, women's rights issues are critical and that is what brought me to this forum.

I think human rights and development issues are fascinating, because they link so directly to the heart of people’s lives. I am looking forward to sharing ideas with you all.

To know more about me, you can visit my blog: http://writingonrights.wordpress.com/

My Passions:Bringing forward people's voices

My Challenges:Inside my own head and the heads of others.

My Vision for the Future:Writing, rights, awareness and connection.

My Areas of Expertise:Human Rights Law, Social Development, Community Development, Writing.
