My Journey of Self Discovery

What WorldPulse Means to Me.

For years, I had doubted who I was. I always felt uncomfortable about the way I thought about my place in society. WorldPulse changed all that for me. I found a space to express myself without fear of judgment. As I began to write in my blog those things I found difficult to express to those around me, I started to find myself as a person. I began to understand that it was okay to be different, to think freely as an individual. WorldPulse has become that place where I can be myself, no matter what.

What Brought Me to WorldPulse

In 2009, I saw an article on the internet calling for women to apply to be correspondents for the VOF program on WorldPulse. That was how I became a member. I was not chosen as a correspondent, but I enjoy my blog and I have, since then, encouraged some of my Cameroonian sisters to join.

I have had the chance to meet great women from all over the world. I have come to understand that despite our colour, our different cultural backgrounds and the distance between us, we have much more in common than we have as differences.

It has been a joy to share this journey with you and I hope that you will continue to bring your unique perspective to World Pulse so that we can share in your work, your ideas and your dreams. It is so wonderful that we are all different and I celebrate the beauty in all of you as we come together under common ideals, hopes and visions.
