Thank you

Thanks for you welcome comment, Katie.

The one women focussed work, which I did while in Australia was to do a SIA for Logan Women's Health Centre (Qld) and campaign for their cause.

All the very best for your journey ahead.

very nice

Hi young lady
You are interesting person and I'm glad to know you , I also like your challenges ( I'm not accepting anything I cannot change so hardheaded , I work smart, hard , hard , and after that if I can't change it I pray for it to be changed but now it's better to me more like you )
good luck & wish you all the best

Hi Sabina,

You are more than welcome. Please let me know if I can help you settle in to PulseWire in any way. My best advice is probably just to explore.

It is good to know you Katie! I am a woman and feminist! Old or young... this is relative!
Greeting you blessed Holidays for the Winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa and Hanukkah!
Anymore feasts we need to know and celebrate for December?

Hello Rabeya,

It is great that you have joined PulseWire.

You have already added a picture to your profile, but why don't you tell us more about yourself: your interests, goals, dreams, ideas, and concerns.

If you are new to online communities, here are a few tips to make your PulseWire experience a positive one.

-- Be bold! Talk to strangers. You never know what you might discover and often, members find they have more in common than they might initially think.
-- Start a dialogue by commenting on another post.
-- Share your expertise and connections. If you can't help, maybe you know someone else who can?
-- Put the community's skills and experiences to work for you! Ask users for feedback, reviews and comments on every post. If you aren't familiar with an organization and service, chances are, someone else is!
-- Mentor someone online. In your own city or around the world.
-- Know someone who would like to use PulseWire? Send them an invitation to join our community!
-- Tags: Tag your posts! Tags are descriptive words associated with the content of your journal entry that members can use to search for your post. Examples could be "conference", "technology", "human trafficking", "(the name of your country)", "water" or "AIDS."

If you have questions, feel free to contact me and I will help you make the most of PulseWire.

Welcome again to our global community and I look forward to hearing more from you here on PulseWire!
