Introducing myself and my journal

Posted March 25, 2009 from United States

About Me: I work for Camfed, an organization that works to end poverty in rural Africa by educating girls and investing in economic and leadership opportunities for them once they graduate. Prior to joining Camfed, I was a social issues journalist, and I focused primarily on women's issues. As a former member of the media, I'm well aware that there are a limited number of platforms open to diverse voices, so I'm very excited about the potential of Pulsewire.

My Passions: nature, music, dancing, beautiful writing

My Challenges: accepting uncertainty

My Vision for the Future: A world where community, equality and justice are givens--everywhere

My Areas of Expertise: girls' education, Africa, creative nonfiction

    It really is amazing how we can all share ideas, dreams and stories, connecting across borders and cultures. I am so happy that you are a part of this wave and please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions, or particular interests that I can steer you towards. We have amazing groups and members in our community.

Like me, you also work with young women i presume.But my work focuses mainly on Leadership and politics training to young women in Africa.I would reallyappreciate it if you would let me know if you hear anything about Leadership and politics seminars and trainings anywhere in the world. I would love to attend. I hope to chat with you more on this wonderful site which i have just discovered and am very excited about.
