Woman of the 21st Century

Hi Sophy,

Welcome to PulseWire! You're right, you CAN be anything that you want to be.

I'd like to direct you World Pulse's new program, Voices of Our Future. I think you'd make a great candidate!

Warm regards,

Hey Sophy,
The group Jade has mentioned is the one in the email you were showing me - you have to join that group to be included in the program. Join, and then start writing...
Good luck, and be who you want to be!
