Dear Beloved Applicants,
Sending out the announcements last night was one of the most joyful, yet bittersweet experiences of my life. As Jensine shared last week, the process of selecting just 30 Correspondents was agonizing.... especially when each and every one of you has such a unique, courageous, powerful, and beautiful voice. We cannot say it enough. You have absolutely blown us away!
Introducing World Pulse Voices of Our Future Correspondents!

Please join us in honoring and congratulating these women.
If you were not selected, please do not be sad! The journey has just begun for all of us. The world is till clamoring for your voice. PulseWire was created for YOU!
Please do not stop writing in your journals! Please do not stop asking for what you need! Please do not stop dreaming and visioning and sharing your dreams and visions with your sisters! As Jacqueline so aptly puts it, "Every sister has a place here. Let us not allow for sadness. Let us remember that our community will be what the supportive baseline of hardworking women will make of it. Come with us. Stay with us. You are deeply appreciated. We are just one more voice, and you are the soul of it."
