This iReport is part of an assignment:
iReport Awards weekend
Freed by the Freedom Project
I joined the CNN iReport Community last year because of the CNN Freedom Project.That was 2 days before my birthday.
I've always known that slavery has many forms, it exists and is not immediately discernible in this modern world we live in. I wanted to help and give myself a challenge.
Since I've always wanted to write, which was something I've adjourned for too long, I took the challenge as a gift for myself. I know I'll be learning something from it in the end.
The first report I wrote was vetted and approved the next day. I felt freedom. I was able to express myself and someone acknowledged what was within me.
August came and I met the Manila CNN iReporters during the 5th birthday of the iReport Community. Once again, I was liberated. I was released into a world of reason, opinions, consideration, respect and adventure.
I met people who are just like me - actively engaged in promoting human welfare and social reforms.
Thanks to the CNN iReport Community.
