Getting to know you

Tags:

Good Afternoon!

I wanted to properly introduce myself. I am Tina Johnson and I got here by way of a dream friend of mine. It is a long story, but know that what matters is I found this forum.

I am happy to be here. I work as a Community Relations Manager in a global company. I reach out to women and men daily and together we help children in need, sometimes that means helping families eat, have a safe place to sleep and gain jobs and education. All of that happens across the globle. I live and work in Champaign, IL and we have proverty and joblessness all around our community of 140,000 people. Amazing to me really.

Today I formed a partnership with Feed The Children, Sprint and the organization in which I work! WOW-amazing really and I pinch myself almost daily to see where my life it taking me right now!

Last week was a trying one for me and I didn't get time to connect with the people in this group. I am hoping that this week is different, so today I decided to write something and reach out to the other people who are experiencing this great opportunity.

Thanks!

Thanks for replying

Yes, that is one of the reasons I love working for Amdocs, we are global and I have the opportunity to work with people from all cultures, backgrounds, genders, etc. Someday's are easier than others, but overall I am thrilled to be working for Amdocs.

Welcome

Welcome Tina. After just reading your introduction I must say that i am motivated to do more, to reach out more. Applying yourself like that shows that you are a strong willed, motivated person who lives to lend a hand and reach out. Thank you for your contribution to our world.

Nice to meet

Hi, Tina,
That's so amazing your work, so many people need it. My name is Iryna and I live in Ukraine. Yeah, you can imagine how many problems we also have... I work in an environmental NGO, we fight to protect unique nature and peace in Crimean peninsula (Southern part of Ukraine). And also we have a project against smoking. I like so much the opportunity to have so many and so different connections around the world, to know how it works here and there, to exchange experience and yes, to support each other!

what a great plan

I think that is a great plan-I would love to be a lifetime associate of World Pulse. It is a wonderful organization. I am having fun getting to know people and working on my assignments. I have already started for this week and my writing seemed to flow well this week.

Thanks!

Je suis vraiment très ravis de votre journal. La chose qui me parrait beaucoup plus importante est de voir que vous avez comme activité principale la protection des enfants. Je suis content de vous rencontrer et je conte recevoir beaucoup de vous comme conseils ou strategies concernant la protection des enfants abandonnés ou orphelins, car j'ai un groupe d'enfants orphelins des guerres que je prends en charge. La tâche n'est pas facile. C'est pour quoi je me dit que je récévrais beaucoup des strategies de votre part. Merci beaucoup Tina. Je suis journaliste.

Thank you

Thank you so much! I think we could certainly work together and find some solutions. I am so glad you wrote in French, while I had to translate it-I want to renew my french skills. I took 4 years of french and wow-it is all gone. I need to learn and this might be the help I need.

Thanks and I look forward to working with you.

Tina
