Dear Elie,

Welcome to World Pulse, a vibrant, growing community of women from more than 190 countries around the world! (And by the way, welcome to Portland--I live here too!)

It's great to have you join us and thank you for sharing with us some of your passions and challenges, as well as your inspiring vision for the future. I believe World Pulse helps to make that vision a reality--"where every human being will thrive and live his/her biggest dreams." This platform is powerful in giving a voice to women who have been silenced and marginalized for so long.

I am anxious to hear more about the work that you do! I hope that you continue to contribute to your journal and let us know your thoughts on how we can contribute to making your vision for the future a reality! It's certainly a vision that I am committed to as well.

Here's a link to the World Pulse "Getting Started" guide, which will help you learn how to network here:

Thanks again for joining, Elie, and welcome!

With love,
