Words of Celebration
Dear Wonderful and Amazing Friends,
The sounds of my heartbeat reverberate to every corner of the world today full of cheerfulness. Reading all the greetings of congratulations from everyone of you is very touching. I wanted to cry since this morning but I can’t because I don’t have time to really feel the joy I have found today. As usual, my day is always full of stressful activities and my emotion is always kept in control to make everything in place. But tonight, it’s 11 o’clock , after all the day’s work I opened again my email – I’m so emotional reading more messages from all of you. I feel sad having farewells and I think this make me cry tonight.
I really wanted to write each and every one of you and how you made a difference in my life. How I wish I can. I promised to make a letter right after our last assignment but I didn’t catch up until today that the list of the finalist came out. I just wanted to share how the program , the PulseWire Team and my fellow correspondents made a great impact in me.
First of all, no words could ever express my gratitude and my endless thanks to Pulsewire Team who provided this opportunity, made such tremendous efforts and valuable contribution to make each and everyone of us bring out the best in us.
The program and the spirit of the Team patiently develop my initial level of confidence in basic journalism. I keep saying I’m not good enough, I’m still a beginner, I’m still learning… but along the way , along my four months journey with you – I did learn so much – so much that I can proudly say – I know how to write openly my innermost feelings and thoughts reflecting the realities of women’s lives here in our country; letting you feel our pain and happiness, the struggles and the tranquility, the survival of the poor and the lavishness of the powers that be , our pasts and the presents times, our dreams and our future. What a gracious learning experience! But I still have a long way to go but I know Pulsewire community is always there …
Secondly, this is my first time experience in making friends in cyberspace – I’ve learned so much – I did learn and experience teleconference – the wonders of technology! Very positive learning experience for me – hearing all the different voices of wonderful and brilliant women all over the world – Yah the world is really small in space and wonderful people and friends are just there in the corners
To Jennifer , thank you so much for your presence on line, for inspiring me to go on, for the patience and understanding in dealing with everyday’s pressure from us, for the endless words of thoughts and inspiration , for everything, you did give your best shot for us. Congratulations for a very well deserve success!
To Janice , I did say to you time and again how thankful I am to you.

Please don’t say goodbyes- Our friendship must go beyond this program – the program is the world we live in – We might be very busy after this program but we still need each other – the women whom we bring in the air/ on line are still there needing our voices loud and clear to be there leaders, their mouth piece, their inspiration, their hope to carry on!
