I'm very glad to be a part of World Pulse.
I am an artist, living in the USA midwestern state of Iowa. The medium I create with is relief printmaking using techniques of woodcut and linocut to make original prints.
I blog and write about numerous human right issues that effect women, including wrestling with my own faith in God and the patriarchy/misogyny and cultural harms I see within the religious culture and how to reconcile both without compromising truth or my values.
I just finished reading "Half the Sky" by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn and I have been so moved by this novel. I recently graduated from college and have found myself unemployed, not accepted into grad school and struggling to find a job. But this book has truly been one of the only things that keeps me going.
I am a dreamcatcher...sometimes I catch the dreams sometimes I don't. But I still run after them because they are worth that effort. I am a shetizen journalist - sometimes my voice is heard, sometimes not but I still continue to speak because I believe in my words and their power to bring about change.
Though proud of her Maasai heritage, Carol Nangeya knew that certain traditional practices in Masailand needed to change. For long she travelled on foot from village to village teaching on the dangers of female genital mutilation/cutting to anyone who would listen. In Maasai culture, genital cutting is an initiation into adulthood.
I'm a Japanese speaking, African drumming, zen meditating American gardener. I am devoted to awakening to full, unobstructed consciousness in this very body during this precious lifetime.

Hello my name is Shristi Bajracharya from Nepal. I just finished my bachelors in Architecture and currently that leaves me being a yet another job hunter in the capital of Nepal. Writing has been a passion for me since the time I can remember. My ambition was to keep writing and it didn't matter if I was to write for others or write for myself.
After living 18 years of my life in Cambodia, I am now based in New York City where I attend Columbia University. My upbringing in Southeast Asia has exposed me to the harsh realities of poverty and political instability. Additionally, as a woman, I am particularly considerate of the burdens that women bear in the context of such social turmoil.
