My voice is soul-bearing, representative, bold, creative, and unique.

I want to be a correspondent because I have been lucky to evolve into a vocal adult who can speak for the many silent women around me in my country.

Honest, strong, solutions-based journalism will help my community to make up their own minds about how they can embrace positive change and get inspired to take action for the greater good.

    Sapna, the world needs more strong, vocal women like you! I have no doubt that your voice will empower many others in India, and bring about that change that is so needed. You are off to a terrific start! Love, Caitlyn

    I started reading through our citizen journalism learning materials last night and this was the first exercise. I wasn't satisfied with the writing really, but the fireworks made it hard to polish up. I hope to write better in the future :) Sapna.
