Need: young woman traveling to India

Dear Pulse Wire Community

My name is Brooke Jordan and I am a young woman from Boulder, Colorado USA. In a month, I will be traveling to India with two of my best friends and am looking for opportunities to connect with anyone who lives in India. We are also three young film makers seeking to share with the world, stories that are not told by the mainstream media but need to be heard.

with much appreciation
