Awesome Voices of Our Future!

No event in my life has been as life changing as being one of the Voices of Our Future awardees. Memories of the most wonderful trip ever are still alive in my mind as I read the news about the new 2010 program awardees. I am honored to pass the challenge on to these three amazing women: Martha Llano, Sarvina Kang and Shekina.

I have followed the most important stages of the program, and I know that all 30 2010 correspondents are wonderful and astonishing. I want to pass on my deepest admiration and love to them and their work in their countries. I know that Martha, Sarvina and Shekina will represent all of you, all of us, in the only way this community know: lovingly.

Saying congratulations then, is not enough. The fullfillment, the grace, the profound change that has taken place in the lives of these thirty women, and the awesome trip that awaits the last three, has no parallel in the world.

So I am here to say not only congratulations, but also to send them all a big hug that will pamper their souls and make them all feel as the stars they truly are. Thanks all for being here for us!

The same big hug also goes to the amazing World Pulse team that once again has hit a homerun. We are here to applaud you one more time.

With all my love,

Jackie

SI!

A mi también me encanta Colombia! Me suena a un país lleno de magia. Yo vivo en una ciudad pequeña bien al sur de Bolivia. Un hermoso valle en la frontera con Argentina. Se llama Tarija. Tenemos buen tiempo todo el año (menos en julio y agosto), rosas todo el año, unos paisajes increibles y el mejor vino de América.

Claro que no exportamos mucho, pero cuando vengas, te lo voy a mostrar todo: los viñedos, los ríos, etc.

Con que llegues aquí, de lo demás no te preocupes. Mi casa es tu casa y aquí siempre hay comida, porque soy la cocinera oficial jajajaja. También soy el chofer, la contadora, la matemática, la científica, en fin, de todo un poco por acá. Así que ya sabes, VENTE. Y nos divertiremos hasta que no podamos más.

Abrazos!

a qué te dedicas?

yo vivo en las altas montañas de mi país en la cordillera central....mi casa también es tu casa. Me sueño ir al sur.....pienso ganarme la lotería este miércoles y en junio irme a viajar...(disculpa no es una broma sino un deseo para lograr hacer tantos sueños que tengo en las comunidades con que trabajo....con la gente, con las ballenas, con las especies vulnerables).

uuuuu vino!!!! qué bueno!!! yo hago mermeladas de pétalos de rosas orgánicas.

ojala nos conozcamos pronto

te deseo todo lo mejor!!!
