To the Future
I'm so pleased we have this group to continue our connections and reflections. I am loving receiving all of your posts again.
This application process has given me much more than I had anticipated and I will take your loving passionate energy with me whatever the outcome. As many people have already stated. In the grand scheme of things, I'm not sure it matters anymore if we go through to the next stage or not at this point in time. What we have created here together is an astounding example of what can be done when diverse people come together with one goal in mind: to change the world one tiny corner of it at a time. It has been amazing to see the breadth of experience and diversity here. From women aged 22 to 66, from Africa to Bolivia, from experienced journalists, new journalists fresh out of college, writers, not for profit workers and women who are writing in English as a second or even third language! Wow! All of us came here to positively impact ourselves, our families, our communities or the world - and working together, inspiring and informing each other like this - has made all of our dreams seem that much more possible.
To all of us and what we can create together.
