Dearest Correspondents,

On behalf of the Voices of Our Future and World Pulse team, CONGRATULATIONS. We have successfully completed month one of our pilot program. We did it!

For me personally, your stories have made me so emotional. I laughed, I cried. I was indignant, I was inspired. The women (and man) you've chosen are global visionaries and changemakers. Bravo!

A few quick updates and suggestions:

1) We want to give you a short (very short) breather, so we are posting month two tomorrow.

2) If you have not done so, we suggest that you share your story on Facebook. Be proud. Unleash Your Voice.

3) There are two correspondents, Liba ( and Ivaldete (, who have not been able to participate to date. We are working diligently to help them overcome their barriers to access. Please send thoughts of abundance to both of them.

4) Dive into your stories. They are amazing.

Thank you dear Jennifer!

This first month has been awesome to all of us, but specially for me, as it is the first time in my life (not kidding), that I have had someone wonderful (my dearest mentor Yvonne) working so closely with me to help me get through hard times. You know something, I have been an only child until I was 13 and I got married at 17 so I never really had anyone to work with me or do something with me ever before. Of course I have my dearest husband and my awesome kids, but all of them usually need my help instead of helping me hahahaha.

So, my feelings about this first month are very deep and unforgettable. In fact in secret I will tell you that I was about to give up on my work, and if it wasn't for my heroic mentor and my dear friend Halima (thanks sweetheart), I would probably had failed. But I did just fine at the last moment. You see, I have a sweet God of my own that sends me these angels.

Thanks for all the effort and support you have showed to us. You are, indeed, my other hero, the one who works quietly and overcomes all obstacles for us. You are amazing, truly.

Lots of love,

We Are One

Jennifer Dear,

Just like what Jap said, I almost quit my job if not for the new mother WorldPulse gave me, I had a lot of difficulties I could not share with all but Ma Natalie Safir, I had to apply for 2 day study leave to enable me utilize this one in a life time opportunity. Now I am relaxed. I Love World Pulse, may God Bless the womb that birth this innovation.

Love You All from the Bottom of my Heart.

And forward we forge...

Dear Jenny,

Thanks a lot for the support you gave us during the first month. The challenges were many, ranging from financial to time management to many others. But we were able to go through it, got time to interview, skype-chat, share, be mentored, gossip but we could still find time to breastfeed. Hey, a big one for all of us, apart frm Liba and Ivadate whom we havent heard from.

But we appreciate the strength and support that we gave to each other and as we leap in to the next step, we hope things gonna be easier. When i lost my job, everything was almost at a standstill, save for my dear mentor, Linda (no wonder i gossip about her!). Thanks all for the sisterly support.


We Can Do It!

WorldPulse is great

Hi Jennifer,
During our first month assignment because it was the first ever, there was so many struggles, many hurdles and ups and downs but at the end WORLDPULSE is great. I had the best experience of my life. Its being a wonderful time here despite all the odds. We can not get to this stage without your supports and others in the team. UP FIVE to you all. My other sisters the correspondents you are all great.

Hi everyone,

Everyone here at World Pulse is so excited for all of you - in your accomplishments, your incredible reporting (I loved reading each one of your articles... it was like one big magazine of beautiful stories that I couldn't put down), your connection to one another and with your mentors, and the journey ahead!

WOW! I cannot wait to see what happens this month!
