Activism

Dear bloggers,
Online activism isn't a waste of time. Through out the year I have spent doing this, I can state that online activism really works. Let us look at *ahem* my experience...
I have gained much from being online, checking orgs and meeting people who thrive to make a difference. I have learned so much about so much... I managed to learn how to shape steady and reasonable opinions. I am more aware on what is happening around the globe. I met people who are very motivating. We are changing the world. We are rocking the world. We are pushing each other forward since it is as much we can do for each other. We teach each other what we know. I believe that you do not need a crowd, you just need to believe that you can make it and you are able to make a difference. You can use one person who shares your views or let me say your desire to create a difference.
I hold a position in YFCI!! I have some space to voice my views. I have great friends who are very motivating.
And just recently I received 50$ for posting in a focus site. It was about digital media and I am the last person on this earth who has a clue on these things but we actually got along really well. And it was the perfect place to gain more information about it. It is nearly 20 rials and hey, it can serve me very well...
Let us never give up, the world may not be walking in the same path with us but it is not against us as well. Online activism really works! You should give it a try sometime...
Thank you everyone...

Thank you for your comment in my blog :)
And by the way, I'm new in YFCI and I hope it will be nice! I saw there is cool people on that forum and I'm really interested about activism - even if people around me thinks I don't care about the others. But really they see myself like I'm an aphatic person, and I'm not :)
Hope we can talk someday!
Your blog is interesting, when I finish with my TCH's Project I'll read more!

I absolutely agree with you, Noor. Online activism helps youth make a change, indeed. In the scarce 3 months I have been involved with YFCI, TIG and VOY I've grown so much as a person and have had the opportunity to show this world to other people (like Andrea and takako), that I could not be more grateful! And you'll indeed make a change, and probably nail a spokeswoman role.
In a not so distant future, we will rock the world: promise? :)

Whoever said online activism is a waste of time should be stoned :) Nah, that's what my dad says as well, but he doesn't understand that its hard for us kids to do stuff, and we aren't waiting till we're 'old enough' right? If there was no VOY or anything, we'd be just as iggerant as the rest, which is even worse than trying to do stuff online..

You go girl!!
