Congratulations Applicants!

You made it through all four assignments with beauty, courage and smiles! This has been an amazing journey for all of us, and I thank each of you for your hard work. During the next couple of weeks, our staff will be diligently working to select 30 women who will become the 2010 Correspondents. Our spaces are limited, and we wish we could bring more of you on for the full training, but each of you is a winner in our eyes and in this process.

Thank you,

Rachael

Dear Rachael and all PulseWire team,

Thanks for all wonderful work that benefitted all of us. Despite the remarkable work and opportunities given to us during the past few months, I have suggestion - please consider for more access and opportunities afterwards in a special network for women media online either for 'alumni' of PulseWire or for public.

I think we need to keep the asset especially to keep the voices sounding and up and up.. To support promoting gender equality and women's empowerment...! Let the pulsevoices keep breathing and alive though not for being selected for training but for positive impact to more women and networks.

Thanks a million for considering the future access, opportunity, hope for a better future for men and women! With best wishes, love, faith and hope

More power to you all.

It was a memorable 4 weeks. Indeed I had re inspired my self about my work and enjoyed myself while writing my article and enhanced my writing skills. All your comments inspired, encouraged and humbled me. Wow!!!!! Women really can be mentors of themselves. Chosen or not, I took home something important, iron sharpens iron, we are strong together and together we can do great things. Inspiration and encouragement does not come from the moon or stars, it comes from each of us; appreciating ourselves, our hard work and believing that with this much effort change is just a matter of time. Thank you for this wonderful experience.

Yes, you are right Rachael, we are all winners. The four weeks felt like the best holiday I've ever been to. I traveled the world reading new voices, discovering new things and finally writing about my own experiences, my needs and my wishes for a better community. Writing each week gave me so much of myself and it pushed me to share and now that we don't have the assignment, I am back to weighing the options. I read so many inspiring voices and I still feel like "who am I?" It's not a confidence issue team, I gained that part during the weekly assignments. I am still overwhelmed by the openness, the honesty and willingness to share for others to learn. The culture of learning and sharing here is massive and I believe I have found my home. This feels like a beautiful home and I hope that someday it becomes easy to click the "submit" button. I wish each and everyone of you the best of luck and I am looking forward to reading your journals and if we are allowed to read the finalist's assignment, I will navigate through this life, sometimes through you very own eyes.

Thank you Rachael and your team.

Dear Rachel & Team,

The four weeks were a vibration in my life. Even when i slept, i dreamt of pulse wire class. This even reminded me of final academic years 10 years a go. I am therefore waiting for the results.

Thanks again.

Dear Rachael, These four weeks had been a wonderful experience. Most unfortunately it coincided with very many personal difficulties and times of turmoil, affecting the quality of my involvement. I enjoyed the personal interaction of many good friends. You had been the most special. You took so much time and effort to keep me involved have my mail posted in the right space. Thank you so much Rachael. I really appreciate it. Very warmly, Vasantha

Ms. Rachael, it was such a very amazing transcendence! I literally evolved into a global soul ... with all of us women at WP sharing our lives while exploring our personal sensitivities as we resonate and reconcile with each other's predicaments and sentiments. It was so fulfilling and gratifying to be here. The four weeks past is really a precious odyssey for some of us who found soul-mates and friends and have emerged in higher dimensions, far beyond the work-week requirements and the group membership. If there is one thing that I will hold on to in WP for as long as I can, it will be the global me! Thanks a lot and all the best for us...

Always, Emie Zozobrado

My last assignment was getting emotional as I typed my vision and how much filling I feel.

Weeks after I joined pulse, I registered to participant in VOF and my journey can simply be described as 'enlightened'. We laughed, cried and shared experinces. Now I got friends whom I met in the assignments week and got to know more from each other. My participation in pulse will keep the fire burning. Let's meet in groups activity and journals.

My cup was half empty May the pulse continue to fill me Reaching heights that are fulfilling Through women eyes the pulse lives on My cup is now half full!

Joyful, Jacky

Hi Rachael. I just want to thank you and your team for coming out with this contest. I have learned to look into my soul and get in touch with the emotions that I couldn't let out for a long time. You have provided an avenue for me and other women in all parts of the world to hear and listen to each other and encourage one another. It is so nice to know that there are great women like you. Thank you and more power to World Pulse.
