Hi Fatima,

Thanks for welcoming me. I read your bio and am impressed with your background, your passion for helping women, and all those countries you've traveled to. Last weekend, I had the honor of meeting someone you probably know, since you are both Nigerian. I attended a World Pulse reception on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts and met Hauwa Ibrahim, the lawyer who knelt before a group of Muslim clerics who had put a fatwa out on her after she defended women from Sharia law. When she told us that she succeeded in getting the clerics to lift their condemnation of her, I felt like I was gazing at David after he slew Goliath. It was a humbling experience for me who has been so discouraged at the power of Exxon Mobil and the Republican Party's ability to ravage our economy and our environment. I am hoping to gain some inspiration from my sisters at World Pulse and, hopefully, help others in any way I can.

My real name is Jeanne.
