My lighthouse

When I was 5 years old I been at the sea. It was very picturesque memory cause it was first time and hadn’t ever seen so much water. I was afraid of water, didn’t want to go in. But when my brother’s trough me into the water and I water was so warm I realized that there is nothing to afraid of. However, I found some other interesting thing for me there it was lighthouse. And the light was so magnetic to me so I decided to explore what was that…
Time passed I love the sea and I know what lighthouse is. But the feeling of something leading you is still exists. I felt the same when was told by my friend that there is World Pulse Community, they have successful work , so the results are vivid and I wont have frames to express my opinion, voice and soul. So when I joined I saw that and it reminded me my curiosity towards sea and lighthouse a specially. That motivated me to write more, express more and made my brain work.
My vision is what I SEE. And I see that Voices of our Future is a part of my future.

Dear Svetlana,
I am left wanting more..and more. In fact I can't get enough! You have a beautiful voice and your writing is powerful, descriptive and soulful. I am sure you could write much longer pieces. For instance, what exactly do you see for yourself, for women, for your country other than being a part of voices of our future. What is your vision for your world? Please do share with us. I am very interested to read more from you.

I felt like I was at the sea with you, seeing the light house by your side. You are very descriptive!

Keep up your great work! Feel free to use all 500 words that you can to give us more, more, more! :)
