Hello Listeners!

I just wanted to say hello here and to thank you for your incredible work in the community!

My name is Emily and as Scott mentioned in his latest email to you all, I've joined the World Pulse team as the Online Community Associate. I could not be more thrilled!

I've been reading your comments in this group and on the WWW campaign submissions and I'm blown away by your compassion and authenticity. You bring yourselves to the community and listen to others with open hearts and great questions that keep the conversations going.

Thank you for what you do. Your presence and support is the vital lifeblood of the World Pulse community.

Looking forward to connecting with you more!

Warmly, Emily

Hello Emily,

Congratulations on your new position within this wonderful organisation. Your kind words are very appreciated. Sending words out into the ether via the internet is in some ways a strange feeling. The back and forth that WorldPulse has organised is a dream come true in how we can now all connect. I am sure we are all the stronger with you there, your enthusiasm shines brightly.

Thank you, Trudy! I'm happy to be here and so glad to meet you.

I just read your profile and I am so inspired by your impressive one-liners:

"Most people would look at my life and say I have many challenges, but I only see opportunity" and "Technology for everyone, technology in support of life as opposed to technology as a focus of life."

Looking forward to supporting community with you, Emily
