Announcing Interviews for the World Pulse Speaking and Media Tour

Dear Correspondents,

I am excited to announce below, the six women who we will be interviewing for the the World Pulse Live! media and speaking tour this fall. It was incredibly difficult to narrow it down to six to interview, and it will be even harder to select just three to come to the US.

Each of you has demonstrated a commitment to VOF, to the World Pulse mission, your communities, and women's empowerment which has astounded us. We are proud of each and every one of you. You have made all of our lives richer, and expanded our horizons and our hearts.

Over the past five months, you have worked diligently to learn the news skills and knowledge that will allow you to vocalize and actualize your visions for change. Whether you are on the list below or not, I challenge each and every one of you to put these new tools to use, crystallize your visions and move forward with confidence. This is your call to action, and the entire PulseWire and World Pulse community is here to support you!

The Correspondents who will come to the US will be speaking on behalf of all of you, so please give them as much support and love as you can.

VOF Tour Interview List (in no particular order):

Shekina-Cameroon
Ni Ni-Burma
Sarvina-Cambodia
Beatrice-Uganda
Martha-Colombia
Fungai-Zimbabwe

Kind regards,

Rachael, Scott and the World Pulse Team

Heartfelt Congratulations!

It takes courage, determination, self confidence, perseverance, hard work, alertness, and patience to succeed and reach our vision and goals and I see all that in all of you……

You are all amazing and it must be very tough for the panel to choose only three out of such an amazing incredible women. We are all winners. You are carrying us all in your hearts and speaking out our one voice. We cheer you ladies. Go go go. :) :) :)

Sarvina, I wish you to be one of the three to go. :)
