Dear World Pulse friends,
I just spent the last week communing with Olanike (Greengirl), Jampa, and Ynanna (LatiNegra) during the World Pulse Live 2014 tour's stop in Portland, Oregon. It was such a different experience to see the faces "behind the words". It made me wish we had the opportunity to gather ALL of the correspondents and mentors together to deepen our relationships, connections, and understanding. I am sad to see the women fly away to California this morning.
I also thought often of the 28 corespondents who were not able to be with us. With no disrespect to Olanike, Ynanna, and Jampa--all of you were deserving of honor and recognition. Each of you were already doing vital leadership work in your community before you ever heard about World Pulse. Please remember that. It can be a painful experience not to "win a contest", and I hope that this has not caused undue suffering. You have gained the respect and recognition of the other correspondents and mentors.
I hope that we can continue to connect here, and build on our relationships. I will be reaching out to those of you that I have not yet met. I am here and willing to share my radio production skills to help others launch their own radio platforms. Just let me know if you are interested.
Have a nice day, and THANK YOU ALL for what you are doing for the world.
