Introducing myself and my journal
I was first introduced to World Pulse while reading "Half the Sky" by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. A few chapters of the book were assigned for a Women's Studies class I was taking, but the stories about women throughout the world were so compelling that I couldn't put it down. I finished the last page with a tear in my eye and a new resolve: to do my part to help lift oppression for women worldwide. That's when I paid a visit to World Pulse and decided to get involved.
Music, leadership, volunteer work, immersing myself in other cultures, writing, hiking, biking, and spending time with my amazingly supportive husband.
Prioritizing my time between the good, better, and best in life.
My Vision for the Future:
I hope the world can one day be a place where the gifts and talents of passionate, selfless women are recognized and maximized by governments and communities throughout the world.
My Areas of Expertise:
Print journalism, editing, design, piano and violin
