Introducing myself and my journal

Posted May 1, 2013 from Zimbabwe

About Me: I'm a girl/woman with big dreams. I've just come to the realization that i want to start an organization/ program for young girl/women in Zimbabwe. A space where irrespective of background, privilege or status we can support each other as women. We can try and deconstruct what it means to be a woman in Zimbabwe. I feel like at some point in our lives irrespective of where we come from, decisions have been made, are being made and will be made (whether by us or by society) based on the fact that we are women- what does that mean for our present and our future. I believe having choice is the greatest strength and motivator. It's what i strive for my fellow women

My Passions: Infectious Diseases; Women and Gender Issues; Social Justice

My Challenges: where to begin

My Vision for the Future: A world where we all have the choice and opportunity to be whatever we want to be

My Areas of Expertise: Healthcare, Gender studies, a bit of anthropology
