And the Op-Eds for publication are...

Dearest VOF Correspondents,

First of all, a HUGE congratulations to you all on your Op-Eds! We had such a difficult time choosing the top pieces as everyone wrote about such nuanced, fascinating, and powerful topics. It is a joy to read your posts week after week, and to see the passion, dedication, and commitment to this program that you've all shown.

Originally, we had planned to choose just three Op-Eds to publish on WorldPulse.com and to push out via our editorial channels. However, because you all did such an incredible job, we have decided to publish seven (yes, SEVEN!) of your columns on a special Voices of Our Future column page.

It's with pleasure that I announce that the seven that will be published are:

Busayo: http://www.worldpulse.com/node/12970
Victoria: http://www.worldpulse.com/node/13153
MamaAfrica: http://www.worldpulse.com/node/13102
Malayapinas: http://www.worldpulse.com/node/13090
Manori: http://www.worldpulse.com/node/13115
Nusrat's: http://www.worldpulse.com/node/13105
Cad_Communication's: http://www.worldpulse.com/node/13035

I want to reiterate that every story that was submitted was a true gem. You should all be very proud of your accomplishments! The seven that were chosen for publication were chosen primarily due to strength of voice, clarity of the argument, and diversity of region and topic.

These stories will be published on WorldPulse.com in the coming weeks. I will be contacting the writers of these pieces individually with edited versions for their approval.

I also want to remind everyone to be on the look out for the three VOF frontline journals that will appear on the site next week!

Congratulations to everyone on completion of this assignment, and a special shout out to the seven above!

All the best,

Corine Milano
Managing Editor

Dear Corine, my mentor, and

Dear Corine, my mentor, and my VOF friends,

This great news surely made my day! It's a blessing for me today. Thank you so much Corine and the Worlpulse Team - i feel so honoured having my op-ed article choosen as one of the seven beautifully written articles and among the many well crafted articles. I still have this feeling of under rating my writing skills and I have really to struggle to come up with one amid my very stressful work and limited writing time - But, the inspiration I'm getting from this community is beyond writing . It's a deeper sense of bonding and the feeling of being supported is so intense .

Thanks to my mentor Jeanne who is so supportive of me - we have disconnection problems at this time. I'm dying to let her know - I'm not angry or frustrated with her , it's just that my emails for her keep coming back to me - and I don't know why.

You are all my inspiration out there, your voices amplify my voice and empower me so much especially in times when Im at a lost along the way. Your hands and hearts are always there keeping me in my journey , in our journey towards freedom. Congratulations ans thank you so much!

love you all,
Malaya.
