Our searchable site has so many examples of females empowering each other through education and encouragement, that there is certain to be inspiration for all.

I act as a volunteer World Pulse welcomer for new WP members and listener for other journal entries. This is some of the most exciting and rewarding work I've ever done. Through this effort, I have become a world volunteer.

We'd love to hear from you again.
