Bravo!!!

Great speech!!! Now I can hear your name... and would have been probably one of your colleagues back in time.
First I was even angry, when they were talking about you and "mispronuncing" your name... Apparently we all have to adjust... My surname has been spelled so many ways... At the beginning I was very confused... And I always waited for the time I get married and change it. I dreamed about different surnames that would match me. And silly, but yes, every guy I dated - I would think how would I sound having his surname. Today I do not care on how they call my name. I am proud of having it. And I doubt I will change it any time soon.

Thank you Victoria

This means a lot coming from you, such a brave woman. I know, i used to be angry when people mispronounced my name until i realized how would they know unless i speak up? Now, I am also proud of my name - it was my great grandmothers, and I am happy to correct people because it give an excuse to chat and learn more about them. I have lots of great chats with store clerks and phone operators these days. I think your name is super cool, i bet it looks GREAT when you sign it on paper too!

Thank YOU for making your voice heard, Victoria. I know there is lots more to hear from you as well...

Awesome

Dearest Jensine:

Every word you said came out from deep inside, showing off your passion for this cause. It made me remember when I started writing here and challenged everyone to "Do it with Passion!". I have loved every minute of this process, and when I saw your speech, I could tell how much you love your creation, and how much passion you have inside of you to keep it flowing. The bare truth is you inspired us all with your passion.

Your words are not yours anymore: they belong to our community. This community you created, which is not yours anymore, but ours. Your heart is so big that it gave birth to a beautiful child that belongs to life, and cannot be stopped anymore because it acquired a life of its own.

I pray to God that I will not let you down, that you will allow me to be supportive of you, and that the community will be glued around you for a long, long time.

Hugs my beautiful friend!

Jackie

You will never let me down

You always bring tears to my eyes, Jacki! You put words to how I feel. That World Pulse was a gift from the stars for women. She flowed through me like a mother and my only job was to give birth, and to give a guiding hand in the early years. Now, she is unstoppable because YOU are unstoppable (even if you get stopped for a little bit, you are still unstoppable :). And even when I stop breathing the pulse will live on in the throats of a network millions of women. The community lives on - the power of the pulse!!

ps - i am growing another dream right now, that i will share one day. but it does involve visiting you in Bolivia - i will say that much :)

inspired as i watch you grow

I'm again awestruck, Jensine, with the vision you have and vulnerability you allow us to share. You inspire me to do and engage more. Watching this clip reminds me of the first time I heard you speak at Bioneers in Eugene in 2004(?) and joined World Pulse. Now seeing you on the bigger Bioneers stage is so cool! I sent your speech to my wife and my other powerful women friends. I believe as you do that un-corking the potential of women is the greatest surge of energy the earth and humanity could ever hope for. You say it so elegantly after letting us see who you really are. It so energizes me! Thank you for all you do. I will do more.
