I am so happy to have finally found World Pulse. I feel, in my bones, that I BELONG here.
An International Studies major in college, I thought I might live abroad one day, perhaps doing humanitarian work. I've always loved travelling and was intensely curious about other cultures. During my teens I was an exchange student in Madrid, Spain. In my 20's I taught English in South Korea and then was a journalist intern in San Jose, Costa Rica. In my 30's I studied graphic design...and then our first son was born.
I've been a "stay-at-home" mama for almost a full decade now. I'm passionate about being the most loving and effective parent I can be to our two little boys. This has been a huge focus for me, giving my life purpose and fulfilling me in ways I never could have imagined.
I'm beginning to become more engaged with the world at large again, feeling more responsiblility to my "world family." I really want to help, be of service, and be part of something much greater than myself.
I also have felt more inspired to make art again. I want to make time to paint, at least once in awhile! I'm learning I shouldn't ignore my urge to make something when inspiration strikes.
It's an honor to be part of World Pulse. It's exhilarating, humbling, and has already enriched my life SO much. Thank you all for being a part of this world community. It's a pleasure to get to know you.
