Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
I grew up in the small town Bend, Oregon... though it's no longer very small but still remains quaint. After graduating from the University of Oregon in journalism, I waited tables so I could travel before "growing up." Now it looks as if it's time to start doing so and thus I just moved to Portland where I could explore more opportunities. I'm looking to volunteer, to get into publishing, to freelance write, to go to concerts, to try a new restaurant as often as I can afford, to go back to school, to network and make new friends, to fall in love and to eventually go on another trip! World Pulse is an incredible outlet for women like me who love reading and writing, international advocacy and women's empowerment and I hope to use it for networking and inspiration.

My Passions:
I love to travel, read, explore, hike, listen to and attempt to play music, educate myself and always always meet new people.

My Challenges:
Finding a job in a new city while still pursuing my personal goals: writing, getting involved in non-profit work, traveling somewhere new (India and Kenya are next on my list)

My Vision for the Future:
Work in publishing, volunteer, write a book, help to change our world and give people a more global prospective.

My Areas of Expertise:
Writing, stage performance, voiceover work, waiting tables!!! (Anyone know of a server job in Portland?)

Ooooh, if you are interested in volunteering for PulseWire in our Portland office, just reply to this post.

We are so thrilled that you have joined PulseWire and based on your interests, I just know that you will find it to be a positive experience. There are many members from India and Kenya so when you are ready to take flight again, you'll find many members to offer advice on what to see and do. You might consider joining the "Jambo, Hello from Kenya!" group moderated by our wonderful Leah Auma Okeyo.

Take a moment to browse through all of our community groups as it's a great way to build powerful networks, find members with similar interests to your own, share ideas or actions. With the group journal, you can brainstorm solutions, pose questions, test ideas and create a support network for your visions. So again, welcome and I know that you will find PulseWire to be engaging, inspiring and thought-provoking.
