My name is Petronella, I reside in Lusaka Zambia. I am a journalist by profession. I have practiced my profession mainly in the print media, I have written stories for both newspapers and magazines. Which is not easy because the print media in our country is not very well developed, we mainly have three major newspapers and of the three, two are owned by the state and one is privately owned. And most of the other publications that come up usually fold up within a space of time. I am currently writing for Africa Development Magazine. Coming from a developing country you can�t help but write about developmental issues but my passion lies with gender based issues, especially the empowerment of women. I also feel in my own way I can contribute to the fight against HIV and AIDS through my profession thus I try as much to write articles on the subject. This is the first time I am joining such a site and I am really looking forward to interacting with different kind of people. I am an easy going person who is always ready to take any challenge, professionally of course. In conclusion I would like to thank you for giving me this opportunity to express myself, looking forward to hearing from everyone at writers.net Thanks again.
