I recently published a piece on World Pulse as a Global Correspondent for the
Voices of Our Future media training program entitled: “A collective unified voice is far more effective”
Writing has always been something that comes natural to me. With words, my freedom of self-expression is pretty much limitless…I enjoy crafting words like a painter uses colors and brush patterns to evoke emotions from stillness.
Every day, I spend many late nights scouring the web seeking for resources targeting recent immigrants. Truth be told, I am more likely to locate resources for refugees with more systematic support compared to resources available for immigrants. As I continue on this amazing and exciting life journey of capturing the voices of African women and girls globally, repeatedly I hear silent, hidden burdens that need a healthy outlet. A need for a safe space just to “be” for a moment. Hearing female survivors of rape turning something that once marred their spirits into fueling embers of strength and hope has been beautifully inspiring. Capturing the voices of women turning passion into a vision and business strategy, encourages me on my path.
Through partnerships with freelance journalists, videos have been completed in Cameroon and are now underway in Kenya! Our theme “What does Africa mean to me?”. ..The response has been enormously humbling. People giving of their time, talents, voices, and input because collectively we recognize that this project is needed.
As women, when we share, we heal…
when we cry, we heal…
when we come together and lift each other,
only then can we overcome.
