who cares anyway

when i came to world pulse i was skeptical, who has time to listen to other people's stories? would people read them and comment? would i make a difference or inspire someone continents away? today i have the answer YES! after posting and getting responses and people sharing I FEEL MY VOICE HAS AT LAST FOUND A VOICE. women, their stories are all different but the same. and if we help each other and speak for each other in unity the world becomes a better place for all women and the statement im my sister's keeper becomes a reality. i speak for myself no one speaks for me. its an empowering statement and sometimes i say it over and over agin those few words have given me power to speak. i have alsways known i wanted to speak out but didnt know it would be this exhilarting proud zimbabwean woman learning to speak and find her voice

    Hello Pelamutunzi,

    I have often felt just like you and doubted that what I felt or what I thought was of interest to no one. And just like you I have found that people do care and are inspired by one person speaking out! I am glad World Pulse is offering all of us a platform to speak up, connect and empower us to lead! Cheers, Delphine
