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

Thank you World Pulse!

I have asked myself why me over and over; the inner being asks me why not me. I am surprised and I am happy to be among the 6 elect. To my dear friends missing in this list, I deeply feel the impact, it is a hard decision to select a few from the many; just as over 600 applied, only 30 were selected, and out of 30, 6 are selected, out of 6 only 3 will be final to go to US. Congratulations to the elects!

Never give up your strength for who you are, The meaning of life is to give life meaning, give life to the women and children, the politicians, the men in your communities, countries, and the globe at large.
I will always cherish your efforts and connect with you until I meet each one of you either in your countries, my country or meeting anywhere in this global village. Let us keep connected even after final stages, remember we are the mentored "heads" the more we unite and bundle up, the stronger the world of women gets rooted, the better our world, together we will do more.

Love,

Beatrice

I believe everybody has the potential to live a better life. Given the Opportunity, Education and Motivation ANYONE can become someone admirable. Nobody is a NOBODY, everybody is SOMEBODY.

Hi everyone, CONGRATULATIONS!

I am so happy for all the correspondents! Being a correspondent, being part of this community, is an awesome experience. I know that all of you have changed your lives for the best, and am positive that the three that will go to the US are exceptional in their hearts, and unbelievable in their commitment, so they have enough spirit to be in the top of the wave and represent all the women who daily visit, share, and live, this WORLD PULSE.

Thank you all for doing this. It is the work of life, that keeps us smiling to each other in thousand ways. And it is the love of the incredible World Pulse team that keeps the Temple of Freedom open for us to rejoice.

In eternal friendship,

Jackie

Special Thank you to Everyone!!

Dear Jensine, you founded World Pulse, you had a vision, to help us discover our treasure, our voices!
Thank you!, thank you!!, thank you Jensine!!!

Scott and Rachael; the commitment you have demonstrated in this process is amazing, handling over 600 applicants, monitoring 30 and keeping awake for all World Pulse members, you are strong people, you are passionate, you are great leaders. And Scott is one man in a million, if you were a Ugandan, you would be the ONLY sober man, thank you for the shoulder to bridge the gap, you are a hero!!
Thank you!, thank you!!, thank you Scott and Rachael!!!

To my mentor Kat and my midwife Becki; you taught me the language, you guided my footsteps, you insisted that I would make it, you told me that I can do it, now I am the brave woman I wanted to be, I can speak impact.
Thank you!, thank you!!, thank you Kat and Becki!!!

Mentors, Midwives; you have been and you are and will remain our pillars!!! Fellow VOF 2010; none of us (30) is a looser; keep this in your mind; we are a bundle and a chain of treasure, if we stick together we are going to transform this world, burn evil like fire on the mountain, rescue the forgotten.
Thank you!, thank you!!, thank you Mentors, Midwives and Fellow VOF 2010!!!

World Pulse Members (non VOF 2010), thank you for reading our articles and commenting, thank you American audience, UK audience, Asia audience and the world audience!!

To the 6 elects; I will be glad for the three who will win the trip to US. I wish you all the best; those who did the interviews already; I am praying for you to win; Me and others who are doing tomorrow; "good luck!"

All my love to you!!

Beatrice

I love this already!

We will have to meet; VOF 2010 should not end with certificates only, we need to bindup and form a strong network, a model network for and of women around the world. Even if we do not meet on October, my prayers to you all; whoever goes through, I will always be happy for you.

Love,

Beatrice
