Dear Correspondents of 2011!

We are so happy to welcome you to the program. It is going to be an incredible 6 months ahead for all of us, and I know you're excited to begin the journey. And what timing! Just as we said goodbye to Sarvina Kang from Cambodia, Beatrice Achieng from Uganda and Martha Llano Serna from Colombia as they finished their tour of 5 US cities for World Pulse Live, we get to welcome all of you! These three amazing Correspondents from 2010 even got to visit the White House in Washington DC this year.

By now, you should have received an email with information about the program, including a Welcome Manual, user guide to Skype and a list of your Vision Mentors and Editorial Midwives. If you have not received this email, please contact us immediately. We try and send information about the program both via email and via the group page.

If you have any questions at all in the next two weeks as we wait for the program to officially start, please don't hesitate to contact me, or Scott Beck. Also, please feel free to add us to your community!

I can't wait to see what the next six months holds....congratulations to all of you!




Thank you Rachael and team WP for this and. Congratulations to all my fellow VoF correspondents! The lull after the 4-week's contest (which was quite a roller-coaster ride) was almost killing me, so I am really happy to see a new journey kickstart today. Hope the coming months will be just as lively, as warm, as interactive and as empowering! Love and best wishes to all!

A big thank you to all of the correspondents, we wouldn't be here without you! You have demonstrated an unshakable determination in making your visions a reality.
