Yenza: the voice of inspiration
Czerina Patel is an inspiration. She spreads energy when talking about Yenza, a project about connecting people, building awareness and supporting change. “Yenza means ‘make’ or ‘do’ in Xhosa and Zulu languages”, said Czerina. She returned to work in South Africa -her birthplace- after a radio journalism career in New York.
“Czerina explained that believes in the power of giving people a voice, and that this is essential to making democracies work.
When we meet at We Media Miami 2009, her project reminded me of how many people and communities need to express by themselves in Latin America; they need a voice in their efforts to built a democratic world.
I am journalist, I work in a newspaper in Lima, Perú. I am interesting in ecology, tourism and trips, human rights and immigration. I am photographer and actually I am doing multimedia reports.
