To all of us, the almost 600 women from over 86 countries, today it is an important day. We want to communicate and we did. We move on. We all won. Something. Thirty will start a new path but the rest will also continue their path to help us all to the femenine pulse which might heal our planet, our species issues.

Congratulation to all, the 30, the 600, and all the people behind scenes making this dream possible.

I think that everyone who participated should be congratulated. All the applicants put their hearts into their stories, and did a great job. There are no losers here. Thanks to eveyone - applicant or not - my eyes have opened even wider to the problems women face and also to some really good things in the world. I am happy to be part of this community. For all of us who did not make it, our voices can still be heard here through our stories, and there is still next year to give it another try. Good luck to all who are continuing - I wish you the best!
