Mentor Love

Tags:

Dear Journal,
This will be our first conversation on the second phase of our journey with World Pulse. I have been soooo excited I didn’t know how to express how I felt exactly to you.
You know, I am writing a love letter to my mentor. I never wanted to share my love letter with you because love is a private affair and personal and more so I was instructed to email it! Hahahaha but every day, I read my friend’s mentor love letters in their journals. I savor their love words and I thought I should not be selfish. Let’s share my love letter too.

Dear Mentor,
My name is Gifty Pearl. Gifty means “Gift of God” and Pearl means “precious”. I believe I am the greatest gift of God to humanity since 03/03/1984.
I am a young woman who is passionate about bringing positive change to the lives of other women. I have a personal vision of seeing a world where women are assertive and economically independent.
I work as a volunteer for a media youth organization called the Children and Youth in Broadcasting-Curious Minds. I have also set up a foundation -“Greight Leaders Foundation” with the aim of mentoring young girls in my community.
I love to paint with words, capture pictures of scenes and record sounds of society daily. I cannot resist the temptation of pouring out what I feel, smell, hear and see about children and women in a journal.
I am thrilled to embark on this journey as a Correspondent with World Pulse. Being a correspondent for me, is a sacred opportunity and responsibility to internet my views and voice woman’s issues. I want to increase the volume of the silent loud voices of other sisters in every corner of Ghana.
Honestly I feel honored to have you travel with me as a mentor on this journey. I believe you are a gift to me and you will leave indelible foot prints in my life as we journey together. I know you will listen, coach, encourage and teach me. I feel you are with me already.
I appreciate the fact that you accepted to be my mentor. It means a lot to me. Thank you for all you will do to bring the best in me in the course of our voyage.
I cannot wait to hear from you so that we start this life changing experience.
With Love,

Gifty

Heartfelt

Gifty (I love your name!), I read this and see you smiling. I hear your laughter and feel your passion for life. It makes me want to give you a big hug and I am sure your mentor will feel the same way. I can't wait to read about your journey with your mentor. Best wishes...

Hi Janice

Hi Janice,
Thanks for your post. You listen with your heart and whole being which makes me very happy and motivated. Today, the world is so noisy that no matter how hard you strain to hear, you still struggle but World Pulse Listeners listen with their hearts- we are honored as Correspondents to have people like you.

Today, many people gather and gain fortune and fame and not ideas about how to change the world with women so we can all live in a world fit for all but fortunate are we, to have you all listen, see and take note of all the ideas we put across in this on line community. What more can we ask for?

Anytime, i read a post i smile and feel honored. You motivate and keep motivating me time after time and daily. I can't wait too to post my experiences, discoveries and challenges as i journey with my mentor on this life transforming voyage. i will keep you all posted.

Many thanks again Janice and i look forward to reading comments from you.

NB: i love your name too. what does it mean? (I am sorry but by nature i ask questions hahahha. Maybe because i am with CURIOUS MINDS)

Name

I love that you ask questions, as it also makes you a great citizen journalist. "Janice" is a variant of "Jane", an English girl's name meaning "God's gracious gift". I also have a middle name in Chinese which my Grandmother gave me and it means "Good". My last name "Wong" is an ancient (and now extremely common) surname and the variation my family use represents descendants of the Yellow Emperor.
