Tribute to VOF 2013 Applicants

Fellow VOF 2013 applicants, as the final week of the application process comes to an end, I am urged to pay homage to all who inspired me in different ways. I will always remember the following:

Aminah, the courageous woman that shares her inner demons and gives hope to others
Kirthi, the woman who always posts her assignments early
Sharontina and Mukut, whose comments you can find on almost every post
Binti, the determined Kenyan woman
Ola who is stirring the move for a better future for women in Sudan
Otto, the only man in a league of women
Rochelle White, who believes in the power of a woman
Petunia, the Nigerian with a passion for change
Nakinti, my very own sister who is such an intelligent writer
Stacey the creative writer who is not ignorant of her creativity
Saving Angel, the woman with the passion for women and children
Maya Norton who takes refuge in Web 2.0 though in a war zone
Mr. Beckbeck who always gives us tips on how to navigate through the site
Zoe and Delphine,our very sweet administrators, always offering a helping hand

…I could go on and on for the list is endless. From various parts of the world, I have met amazing women here!
In our own different ways, we are so talented and we speak the same language, the language of change. The application process for VOF 2013 is rounding up but World Pulse continues to roll. Let us continue to make use of the wonderful opportunity here to share our stories, our thoughts and our solutions. It has been an absolute pleasure knowing you all.

Much love
Precious

its being a huge priviledge!

For me personally its being a huge privilege to be here leading my voice to speak.Am really going to miss the experiences shared and the comments.its basically a sharing community.Even though we might never see ourselves on this side of the divide,keeping in touch is becoming so paramount in a world that is a global village. we cant afford to let go of this shared community! we need to find a way to keep and stay in touch.someone somewhere just might have the answers to solving ur personal or community issues from across the globe.
As this quietly draws to a close,am sincerely grateful for this opportunity.
stay blessed and keep voicing out!

Wow

My precious, you such a sweetheart. But dear i feel this is not all. It just the beginning, a new powerful network yet arising out of love and concern for one another. Now no problem is big and no solution is far. Everything has become so light. Lighthearted and souls lifted.

Will continue to speak and listen.

Tribute!

Dear Precious, what a memorable tribute to these lovely ladies! I couldnt agree more with you in that they all are so special. And, i truly believe that all the women here are good writers and they deserve a tribute. Im thankful to WP that connected us all in solidarity. Hats off to all the wonderful women in WorldPulse. <3

Oh dear Precious,

You don't know how humbling it is to be remembered like this.
I am honored that you remember my writing and believe I my grieving heart has hope to GIVE.

When I think of myself, I think of a broken defeated person. I try very hard to stay strong to not give into depression.
I know how hauntingly lonely this journey is and do not wish anyone else to walk this path.
That's my one reason why I am braving myself to write. I write my heartaches and through it I hope to find happiness.

Keep writing and inspiring.

Salaam
Aminah

Tina
