I'm an educator writing for Annex Press about topics mostly regarding women's rights in Afghanistan and around the world. I've been traveling extensively throughout the Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe, especially in underdeveloped countries where women are considered second class citizens, and deprived of their most basic rights. Many of the places I've visited are now at war - Yemen, Syria, Kashmir - or suffered from conflicts in their recent history - Egypt, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Peru, Bolivia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Tibet, the Caucasus, Cuba. All are trying to find their true identity and direction. It's in countries like these that women are most repressed, where tradition prevents them from having equal opportunities compared with the male population. Through my work in a school, teaching students with learning disabilities, I've learned how to empower and motivate young individuals to advocate for themselves in a world that is every day more and more competitive. And through my work in fitness, training clients coming from diverse backgrounds, I've learned how to empower and motivate them to achieve their goals no matter how hard they need to work. Now I'm utilizing the strategies provided by current social media to work for the empowerment of women across the globe, and for a global society in which women can finally have a leadership role.
