Announcement about the Selection Process


Dear Amazing, Wonderful, Strong, Beautiful, Life-changing Women,

What a difficult time this is!

As you know the program is now over and we are left with the very difficult task of selecting 3 of you (Correspondents) to come in the Fall of 2014 to an all-expenses-paid speaking and media tour to 3 to 5 cities in the United States.

Not only is it difficult to narrow it down, but it is heart breaking at times to have to chose! This journey has been amazing and transforming for all of us in so many ways!

Zoe and I, along with the rest of the Selection Committee, Scott Beck (Online Community Manager), Jensine Larsen (Founder and CEO), Patrick Edwards (Development Associate) and Kim Crane (Content Coordinator) have selected 6 of you who will be interviewed!

We strongly considered your vision, your goals for the future, your solution oriented writing and your leadership!

After the interviews are done, the Selection Committee will gather again to select the final 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is my pleasure today to share with you the names of the six ladies who will be interviewed:

Klaudia Mexico

Please wish these ladies well and join me in congratulating them!

Every 31 of you are truly amazing leaders and you were all selected in our hearts!
Congratulations to all of you for being part of this journey with us, for sticking to it and for your commitment to your vision to change the world! We are on track to be the first ever Voices of Our Future program with 100% completion!

Stay tuned for an announcement soon of the 3!
Love u all!
Delphine and Zoe

to all VOF

to all VOF participants:

Congratulations to all of you who completed this training program. I imagine many of you are struggling today with the realization that others were chosen to be interviewed. I- and I think I speak for all of WP- know that you worked, sacrificed, gave heart and gave your soul to your training and your submissions. Just because you were not one of the finalists does NOT diminish your value nor your work. You are amazing women, and I look forward to the amazing things you will do!

Take heart, dear ones. Keep your eyes open- your path has lead you here, and we never know what opportunities may be just up ahead. But if we close our eyes or our hearts we may miss it.

So here's to open eyes,
to open hearts.
To the change that is coming,
from our collective power of being.

Love to you-

Let us Hope together-

Congratulations my dear sisters!
I must confess that at the beginning of this journey, I wanted nothing better than being among the finalists. However, World Pulse being the mother of possibilities opened so many doors for me that I was literally confused with the overwhelming avenues of prosperity.
I secretly started praying not to make the short list as this would mean missing out on so many other great opportunities when I had already partaken of a huge bite of what is always cooking in this pot that is World Pulse.
I can honestly say that I can almost smell my vision, all because of World Pulse.
A lot is happening in my professional life right now, which couldn't have come to pass without this great opportunity to be part of the class of 2013. It was a tough journey with many hiccups, but no child is born that never suffers a cold or other ailment.
Here is to wish my 6 sisters the very best in their upcoming interviews. Go go go sheroes!

A new mom and a stronger voice!

I'm so thankful for this year. Thanks to VOF I was able to write all my thoughts and strenghten my voice. As a result, my mother has became one of my stronger supporters and it means the world to me.

Thanks to all of you we'll change the world for a better place to live.

Congratulations to the six wonderful ladies! Ace the interview and remember you are going to represent our cause through your voice in a global context.

Zoe and Delphine (and the entire WP team actually)- I will take this opportunity to thank you and to let you know that the program has empowered us in innumerable ways and the training will translate into betterment of the society. Receiving the training has been the best experience and I believe you when you say each one of us are leaders in our own ways. Not being chosen as final 6 is not a loss therefore. I understand it was difficult and heartbreaking for you, but take pride and solace in the fact that we are truly happy and empowered.

Congratulations ladies !

When I first joined World Pulse in 2012, I had little clue that it would transform me in such a unique way. With each story, each appreciative comment and love from the community members and staff, I have managed to come this far. I feel so fortunate and loved that my voice and vision was considered worthy to be in the top 6. I feel incredibly proud to represent India and the million voices of untold stories. All this has happened because of World Pulse and the amazing VOF program.

I want to thank the 31 correspondents for their immense hard work and dedication. You all have inspired me and the friendships formed, will last a lifetime.

Thank you World Pulse from the bottom of my heart. I am stronger because of you !

Love and hugs,

Mukut Ray

Well done Ladies!

This is a wonderful achievement. I wish you all the very best in your journey.

And to all the Correspondents, your commitment and stories have been inspiring. Please share them with the world.

To Zoe and Delphine, you ladies totally rocked! The coordination of this global program must have been challenging and you were always so open-hearted, warm and supportive to everyone. Thank YOU!

Wishing everyone a wonderful 2014 ... filled with laughter, joy, love and peace.

Congratulations to WorldPulse

Congratulations to WorldPulse for 100% completion. I have been impressed, from the outset, with the attention to detail and support in each part of this process. Congratulations to all finalists.

I am certainly grateful that I wasn't on the selection committee, as we'd all love to see all of you in the United States raising awareness of the plights faced by the most vulnerable in your countries.

It was so humbling and greatly gratifying to have been a part of the process.

Thank you to all at WorldPulse.

Congratulations to Greengirl, LatiNegra, Klaudia, Jampa, Mukut, & Ayunnie
totally deserving of the selection :)

I have had my hands full and have been largely absent from this space for the past two months or so. And it actually feels like two whole years has passed and I miss you all.

Anyways, I'm sure it would be a tough decision for the Selection Committee to select 3 among the six ladies.

Good luck to the selection committee as well as the six ladies.
