Welcome to PulseWire. You juggle a lot of things. Have you always lived in Jamaica?


Hello Jenna. I have been living in Jamaica for about 2 years. Before that I lived for 27 years in New England.
What a contrast this is!!
Really changing my head and opening my heart. But it's not easy!!
In so many ways, I am experiencing transformation....I want to write more about it, share my reflections and questions, and very much hope to engage in conversation with other women here.
I am SO happy to have discovered World Pulse!
It's beautiful, fantastic....the nicest thing I've come across in cyberland!

Love and blessings!

Nadine, what a pleasure it is to have you on PulseWire. I look forward to you sharing your personal insights and experiences based on the life you live in Jamaica, compared to what it was in New England. Many members do not have the opportunity to travel so it is wonderful when we can all get a glimpse of the issues and concerns facing women in other areas of the globe. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or need some direction in navigating through our site.

To get started, you can share your ideas and dreams by writing in your journal, reading other member's journals and offering comments, and joining groups to participate in the discussions. Our group directory ( is where you will find powerful networks bringing together PulseWire members with similar visions, sharing ideas or actions.

I look forward to reading more from you. Again, welcome.
PulseWire Community Director
