Leaving World Pulse... but not PulseWire!

A letter to my beloved PulseWire community -

It is with mixed feelings that I bring to you the news that today is my penultimate day working for World Pulse. Over the past year and a half, I have gotten to know women and men from all over the world, taking risks and shaking things up to make the world a better, more equal place. I've been moved, inspired, and amazed by so many of you, so many times. In just the last few months, I have watched Fardosa Muse of Kenya use PulseWire to save a life, Beatrice of Uganda used it to educate young girls in her community, Hummingbird raise awareness about the violence in Syria, Nasreenamina lead a feminist movement in Argentina, CongoLeezza launch a Congolese uprising, and so much more!

I've learned so much from you about politics, culture, human rights, health, entrepreneurship, strength and so many other topics. It has been both an honor and a pleasure working to support you, connect you with resources, help cultivate and deliver your voices to affect change, and more.

I will be succeeded by your great friend and supporter, Scott Beck. Scott has been the Voices of Our Future program coordinator, so many of you already know and love him. I am more than confident that he will successfully maintain and grow this unique community, listen to your concerns and ideas, and ensure that they are addressed. I encourage you to connect with him and say hi on PulseWire here. You also continue to be supported by the rest of the very-committed World Pulse staff, who you can connect with here: http://www.worldpulse.com/user/directory?badge=wp_staff

Though I'm sad to leave the World Pulse team, I'm excited to move on in a new professional direction, working to address global health issues. I will continue to stay engaged on PulseWire as much as possible, and hope to stay in touch with my PulseWire friends!

Thank you for being such a wonderful community,
Breese

Really?

I logged into the WorldPulse site tonight, as has become my routine for quite some time now only to be greeted with your shocker, Breese. I was really taken aback, as I read through your "LEAVING WORLD PULSE POST" with mixed feelings and so many questions on my mind.

Well, I am consoled by the fact that you will still stay engaged with the Pulsewire community. It's great to know too that the new career path you're taking, is one that will contribute to positive change in the global health sector.

I look forward to hearing your success stories and wish you the very best!

Lots of love and best wishes,

Olanike

I've really enjoyed reading your posts, and am so glad to hear you check PulseWire daily. I hope you continue to stay so engaged. World Pulse has many plans and ideas for the future.

Wishing you all the best, and sending a big hug!
