Note from World Pulse's Managing Editor

Thank you to everyone who participated in the My Story Writing Contest! You have all made this a huge success, and we're excited to begin the process of evaluating the nearly 100 entries we received. It's going to be tough to choose just six to eight for publication! Stay tuned for the announcement of the selections in the coming months.

While this contest has come to a close, I'd like to encourage each of you to continue using your PulseWire journal to tell your stories, to share your voice, and to connect with women across the globe. World Pulse looks to PulseWire as our newswire, and our editorial team often sources stories for our online and print magazines through this community.

We're constantly active on the site, looking for new and exciting stories to share with our audience. We'll never publish anything without first getting permission from the original author, so don't be afraid to use your PulseWire journal as a personal blog as well. We know that it's important to keep PulseWire a safe place, and understand that sometimes journal entries just aren't for the larger community's eyes.

Thanks again to all of you for your amazing interpretations of Land. I look forward to reading your words as you continue to share your stories and experiences with the community.

In partnership,

Corine Milano
Managing Editor
World Pulse Media

PS: Because this round has been so successful, My Story will be a continuing feature in our semi-annual (twice yearly) print magazine. The next My Story competition will likely be announced in mid-Summer 2010. We hope you'll all participate again!

Thank you ( with a big smile) :-)

Hello Corine Milano,

Thank you for your lovely welcome to this wonderful community.
Actually I should thank you for this chance and for accepting and opening the door for me and other women to share and express what is in our minds. when I first read "no one speaks for me, I speak for myself"; I stopped for a while looking at women faces up there, then start thinking... we share something, each one has a story to tell,and I have a story to tell, if not today then tomorrow. thank you for opening this window for me.

I love painting, and I consider it a wonderful way to express what is in my mind but I didn't improve this hobby, I don't remember when was the last time I used colours! then I start writing but didn't show my writing to any one. I also stopped writing for a while, now I am interested in reading. Being a member in this community and finding support from lovely people here, and your support of course :-) I decided to go back to writing and to express again what is inside me, not to hide them but to share them with all women across the globe.

thank you for this chance, and for allowing my voice to be heared :-)

love, peace and respect


Ammoura, Fawzia


Thank You Ms. Corine

Thank you for your inspiration. Actually, this Mystory2009 is really an wonderful place where we can share many untold stories from women of diverse economic and culltural background across the world.

I hope in the future there will be many other opportunities for us, for the women, to share out stories.

Best regards,
Fahmida Yesmine
