Welcome, Robyn!

Dear Robyn,

I so enjoyed reading your full, descriptive and inspiring journal introduction. You are certainly living a richly rewarding and full life--I get the sense that you want to leave nothing back; you are "giving it your all;" you are dynamic, creative, and full of enthusiasm for tackling problems head on and finding lasting solutions! I especially love that you are a "general mischief-maker." We have got to make some mischief in order to get change moving! If I only had half your energy and vision...:)

It's wonderful that you have joined World Pulse and are going to contribute to the Voices of Our Future Program as a Vision Mentor. You will be instrumental in helping women, as you say, "create new worlds" and that is an incredible gift that you are giving them and their communities. Thank you! I'm sure you will be very inspired along the way by the stories you read and women you meet on this platform.

To learn how to navigate the World Pulse website and how to get started networking with others, you can refer to the Getting Started Guide: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/about/guide

Welcome to World Pulse!

With gratitude,

Susan
