About Me: I'm a mother a wife and a sister to many. Currently I am studying at Egerton university. I'm an activist who believes in raising her voice when anyone is going through any form of oppression. I am one of the founders of mydressmychoice campaign in Nairobi Kenya and I'm very passionate about matters that are affecting women from all walks of life . I believe in equality and above all believe that women can do much more when empowered in our communities. I fight for justice today tomorrow and for the future generations .

My Passions: women and children issues

My Challenges: Recourses and the will of women who are suffering to come out

My Vision for the Future: That no woman will be judged and violated because of their dressing . That women one day will take up leadeship roles in plenty

    Dear Diana Rose,

    Welcome to the World Pulse community of women from around the world! What an inspiration it is to read your profile. I commend you for being one of the founders of such an awesome campaign--My Dress, My Choice. I read about your campaign online and watched a news story about it, enjoying the uplifting photos of women--and men--marching in the streets to demand their right to dress as they choose. Bravo to you!!!

    You are so right that we have to speak out against injustice where we find it, not only for people who suffer from injustice today, but for our children and children's children as well. I honor your vision, your commitment, and your activism!!

    Thank you for joining World Pulse and sharing your story with us. I look forward to reading more about your campaign and seeing the fruits of its success. Keep it up!!
