Introducing myself and my journal

Posted May 5, 2013 from Trinidad and Tobago

About Me: I am a humble woman. A life-long learner and a teacher at heart; A BSc. in Psychology and diplomas in various disciplines. I am self driven with a passion for purpose as my relationship with God keeps me grounded. I formed an organisation called women of purpose where we can support and empower each other. My favourite place is the beach and one of my favourite poem is 'Still I Rise' by the amazing Maya Angelou.

Dear Angelique,

Welcome to World Pulse! I am so glad you have joined this amazing community of women from more than 190 countries around the world. Here you can exchange ideas, inspiration, advice, and stories, connecting with others who share similar interests and passions as yourself. To learn more how to network with others in the community, please take a look at the "Getting Started" guide:

I was moved by much of what you wrote in your profile, perhaps mostly by the first line: "I am a humble woman." Your authenticity shines through. (I'm reminded of a beautiful quote by Henry Thoreau: "Humility like the darkness, reveals the heavenly lights.") Many things you say resonate: the pleasures you list, your passion for spirituality and the empowerment of women, and your statement that you would have accomplished your life's purpose if you could impact the life of one person. Beautiful! You have so many areas of expertise--I am sure you will find plenty of ways to support, encourage and impact women via World Pulse.

Another way you may wish to contribute is by participating in the "Girls Transform the World" digital campaign:

There's also a chance to be published in our-emagazine by contributing a piece about Maternal Health.

Thank you again for becoming a member. Please continue to make your voice heard. It's a pleasure to have you here!

Dearest Susan,

Thank you so much for your beautiful and warm welcome. :) Everything you said touched my heart very deeply. It is indeed a pleasure and a priviledge to be associated with such an amazing community. It would be an honor for me to contribute in anyway that I can to further build on the foundation that has already been set here.

Just to see a young girl or woman accomplish her hearts desire brings such joy and a blessing to my soul. I am looking forward to being part of the transformation. May your light continue to shine as it touches the heart of others and I love Hafiz :)

They are: Digital Action Campaign - Maternal Health Campaign - Transform -
