Welcome, Laura! It's great to

Welcome, Laura! It's great to meet you here. What four countries did you focus on for your master's degree?
What an amazing experience working as an online volunteer for the UN websites. What kind of work did that entail? I'm always curious about what opportunities are out there!

It's great to meet you here and I hope you'll come back and share more about what you're learning everyday with the community. There are a lot of women here who I know would love to chat about your field.

Looking forward to further discussions!

Hello Corine, nice to meet you!
I studied in Belgium, Netherlands, England and Finland and travel to other countries and cities in Europe. It was a great program with people from different backgorunds. Most important is that I learned a lot of things and met very nice people. If you want you can join the online volunteer network, you can apply for an assignment. There are several organizations with different projects. Actually I met one person there working in an assignment as a team and she is also part of this network.
Hope we can chat and discuss!! : )

Thank you!

Ah, I have been to the

Ah, I have been to the Netherlands and Belgium, but never England or Finland. Both seem like beautiful countries and I would love to go someday. (In fact, there probably isn't a country I wouldn't want to visit!).

I will definitely check out the online volunteer network—and how wonderful that you met someone on PulseWire who was also involved! It's so fun to watch as PulseWire expands everyday. I am meeting so many people and making so many wonderful connections.

Looking forward to getting to know you better!

: ) I know whant you mean when you say that there probably isn´t a country you wouln´t want to visit. I like to travel a lot as you. I would be very happy to work for in a place where I have to travel to many places. Check the webiste you´re going to like it very much and will enjoy working on the assignments. You can either work by yourself or with a team, depending on the task, but definetly is very rewarding to help even when you are far away...I guess you know about this ; )

I am looking forward too to getting to know you better and of course, share ideas, comments, problems, anything!
