I am just feeling back to normal again after my first IAC, which happens to be the 17th in Mexico City.
The program overwhelmed me, but valued meeting the faces whose names I always see on PulseWire website - this has spurred me to start contributing, and will do so whenever we have electricity and internet connection. I liked the idea of the Women's Networking Zone which was in the Global Village. However, the space was very noisy and made concentration difficult. I kept imagining how women who are hard-of-hearing could meaningfully engage in such a space whose surrounding din was too much for my aging ears.
I tapped into the energy of younger women in my group of Southern African Women Movement Builders. I feel we were able to cross the line and make our message heard by a sizeable number.
I am truly privileged to have been introduced to Pulsewire at its inception, and now with the engagement in the WNZ in Mexico, am determined to be active on the website!0Send Me Love
