“VOF Week 4: (Ready to step somewhere I have never been)”.

I believe that everybody in this world has a mission to accomplish. This leads me to imagine so many faces, places and inner spaces.

Two weeks ago I knew that I was not admitted for a PhD program. I thought that I was doing something wrong, that I was not good enough to be admitted in such a high education level. I guess it is not yet my time for a PhD or it does not correspond to me but there is no reason to let my heart be broken by this. And here is where I return to the beginning where everybody has a mission. My mission is to learn as much as I can and not to attach to people and things. This rule I must follow if I do not want to suffer for not getting what I want. My personal vision for my life is to keep trying no matter how many obstacles and how hard they are in any thing and, teach this lesson to younger generations because they will find a world harder than this one but not impossible. Be fearless in doing new things and if I get wrong have the certainty that there will be other ways. Looking life with different eyes perhaps will be the most important aim to achieve. There are so many problems and people suffering in the world and we only get a glimpse of it and my vision is to try to heal as many people as possible, so that no more harm is done to human beings, the environment and earth.

I will have to be a warrior for my community and the world. Wear my armor everywhere I go, not get sad and do my best to change the reality that most people avoid. I know that starting from below is the first step to make a difference. It is not so necessary to have the “right” education background. The passion, wish and will and the hope to see everybody with the same opportunities and life conditions, are enough reasons to be part of the world transformation.

Being a correspondent will help me to develop in a personal and professional way and this will enrich the people around me. Having the opportunity to be prepared by and organization that has the expertise in taking out the empowerment and leadership found in the deepest part of the person, together with all the skills and abilities that can be learnt from being a correspondent, will make the path easy to find silent voices and make them to be heard. Becoming someone with such an honorable, respectful and powerful responsibility will make me cross frontiers and tell the world the stories hidden in the places that we least imagine. But most important is that by sharing those stories, it will light up many individuals and make them turn their hearts and minds towards social transformation. As a correspondent one can become stronger and be fair in decision-making thinking in people´s benefit not personal. It will be a precious gift to make many dreams come true.

World pulse is a great example of women´s visionary positive thoughts, of a personal passion able to reach far places, of a dream that can come true if one puts her whole faith and hope in it, but it is also the opened window for many falcons to fly. I have always been eager for knowing new worlds and new things. My journey to different countries showed me what Jesus said once: “what you do for others, you are doing it for me” and it took me to this place. I found in World Pulse a stable platform where envy does not exist among women, it is their personal story, experience, passion and support to each other that connects them. Because of its persistence it has proved to be a place for the sweet, emotional and inspirational thoughts found in the inner self of women. Writing texts and reading so many others are educating me and I should never forget that education means communication and communication is the exchange of ideas. This is what I want to do as correspondent in World Pulse.

Your sentences touch me right in my heart and my center Laura. I completely agree. And yes - this place where envy does not exist among women, it is a sacred one. I am so inspired by your vision and so certain as I read your words that you will be a leader of this vision.
Thank you so much,
