Welcome

I am so happy you have joined us and have applied for the Voices of Our Future program. Your struggle to rise up from your situation and to then become an advocate for women in your community is inspiring. You are a role model for the women of Zimbabwe, of Africa and of this world.

Here, you will find women who have dared to speak out and are making connections crossing oceans, continents, and cultural barriers to change the way we live. Stories are being told, movements are being started and laws are being reformed as lives are transformed.

You are now a member of this vibrant community and I look forward to reading about your passions, ideas, concerns and dreams. You can share your ideas and dreams by writing in your journal, reading other member's journals and offering comments, and joining groups to participate in the discussions.

Again, welcome. I know that you will find PulseWire to be engaging, inspiring and thought-provoking.
