To live a satisfying life is a big task and to be an agent of change is a real challenge. I don’t want to live a routine life; I want to do something so that even if I die I will be remembered forever. Being mortal I want to be an immortal. These words might seem utopia to some people but this is true that I want to serve humanity in a way that tomorrow when I die, I shouldn’t regret that my life wasn’t worth it and whatever time Almighty gave to me, went in vain. I don’t want to disarray myself in past or keep thinking about my failures and hurdles; rather I want to think ahead of future as an agent of change and a revolutionary so that the bottlenecks I faced during my journey, no one else can face ever in life. Surely, in future I would like to see many women coming out of their cocoons, speaking up for their rights and voicing for other women so that together we can magnify the chances of success. I have made up my mind of being a citizen journalist and report women rights in my area, share their stories and look for remedial measures. Change is slow but not impossible and I can predict I can be a social justice leader in future for sure because I have larger welfare of people at heart. My future is quite clear. I want to be an active journalist with a mission to work for the marginalized and downtrodden community in my area or elsewhere in the world with a vision to bring in a colossal change in their outlook about their lives. As a journalist, I want to sow the seeds of change so that I could anticipate women empowerment at a major scale. As an agent of change I want to leave a trail behind me before I die. My aim is to see women on the forefront and their larger participation in decision making at home or at the work place. I could foresee my future as a revolutionary and an instrument of change for women all over the world, especially in Kashmir. I, as women could feel the pain of those who have been raped emotionally as well as physically. I want to heal their wounds, strap up their bruises, give them a pat, extend my hand and offer my shoulder at the hour of need because I was all alone in my journey when I started my march towards my own empowerment. As a matter of fact my future vision coincides with my reason why I want to be a Voices of Our Correspondent. Women Rights is the area where I want to specialize and work on in future, and my raisen detra for joining Voices of Our Correspondents is to hone my skills so that I can bring forth women issues before the world, share the stories with the women the world around and then seek measures to bring in relief to those who need my help in future. This program will help me to get expert advice on how to use social media in amplifying women issues around the world. In a way this program will empower me first and then I can utilize my expertise in raising my voice for my community. I believe that together, we, through this program can bind with each other globally; share our mutual concerns and then work together to overcome problems. Through social networking I can form a global chain with the women of all shades, extend my reach and seek their help in resolving problems o women in my area. I am sure once I and other like minded women succeed in doing so, later we can help each in all possible ways. We can form a viable platform for future.
