Welcome to Pulsewire!

It's exciting to have you here and to learn a bit about you. We all get a little more empowered when more voices join the choir! Please feel free to share your thoughts, stories and encouragement. Hopefully you enjoy becoming a part of this global community.

I enjoyed reading your introduction. Supporting women and girls in learning to love themselves can be challenging. However, helping one achieve their dreams is worth the work. I look forward to seeing more of you online and hearing more of your voice.

Listen. Engage. Have Fun!
