A warm welcome!

I'm so glad you found our community and I hope you will share with us some of your experiences as a Sudanese woman in Dubai. You may be interested in connecting with Halima, one of World Pulse's Voices of our Future correspondents who is also from Sudan.

I'd also like to invite you to share a personal story about land as part of our new My Story program. Some of the responses will be published in the spring edition of World Pulse magazine. Check out the program details if you are interested, and tell us, what does Land mean to YOU?

If you have any questions about the community, let me know and I will try and get you started. I look forward to seeing more from you on PulseWire!

Be well,

World Pulse Technology Associate

Welcome to PulseWire!

Hello and welcome to this great network of voices from around the world! I loved how in your vision for the future you wrote to live "responsibly (most of the time)". That made me think you probably have some stories to share about when you might be pushing the boundaries or constraints of life. As Michelle said, right now there is an opportunity to get your story published, but the deadline is approaching fast. If you are interested, check it out at:

I trust you will find this community to be a perfect place to write about your experiences and to learn about others.

Society's expectations

Your description of "navigating my way between society's expectations of me and my vision for my life" reminds me of how similar we all are, no matter where we are living. "What we have in common is greater than that which separates us," paraphrasing one of my favorite authors, Madeleine L'engle. She too was a woman striking out on her own, finding that balance of being authentic in our society.

I'm so glad you're on PulseWire! I too would love to hear your stories.

All the best,
