What brought me to World Pulse
Approximately five years ago, I sat down in a hotel lobby with an intriguing woman who was introduced to me through a mutual friend. This woman had the idea of publishing a magazine that would focus on global issues from a woman’s perspective and provide solutions-based editorial to empower women worldwide. I understood immediately the need for such a magazine and was so captivated by the vision of this woman that I volunteered my services as a consultant.
That woman was the World Pulse Founder, Jensine, who today inspires women from all corners of the globe to stand up and let their voices ring out. Upon relocating to Portland, I renewed contact with Jensine and joined the organization as the PulseWire Community Director, fulfilling a dream to give voice to the silent, lend support to those who feel as if their voice has no significance, and to contribute positively to improving the lives of all – men, women and children.
Sitting in my Portland apartment today, I watch as new voices take their first tentative steps on PulseWire and slowly but surely, witness their spirits take flight as they discover the support and friendship that PulseWire is built upon. I watch as women connect across cultures, I hear the laughter of friendships transcending borders, and feel the support of shared experiences inspiring hope. Each day, I am so moved by your stories, by your ability to touch so many others in ways you’ll never know, and by your courage and strength when you have felt most alone. My dream to help transform lives has found fertile ground in PulseWire which not only provides a network for women, a platform for change but a sanctuary for those who have been silent. I am so proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with this amazing World Pulse team as we watch in awe as you send out your messages of hope, inspiration, friendship and support. It is because of you that our visions for the future are fulfilled and I thank every one of you for making my dream come true.
