Some World Pulse sisters simply amaze and deeply inspire me at what they have accomplished, and what they are dreaming up next. Some simply light up the room when they are present. Kirthi does this. Kirthi is an Encourager, a Storyteller, an Ambassador, a Changemaker, a community mentor. She began in World Pulse in 2012 and her very first story was a call out to change this world to a world in which girls are free. She needed an organization to work through, so she created the Red Elephant Foundation. One of the first of her many actions that I was aware of, was her invitation to young people to write letters to each other across religious divides. The number of actions she has taken, awards for hard work given, new peacemaking events created, cross cultural discussions she has led, new ideas she has sparked, speeches she has made, interconnections she has forged are all too numerous to list. I have seen video of her speaking to young people, been present in meetings in which she cuts through any confusion with brilliant suggestions, and…has created Sahaas, a global helpline for women needing to escape violence.
All this, but my nomination for Kirthi because of her dedication and extraordinary ability to bring people together comes from what I have experienced in where our discussions go, and my gratitude for our friendship, and for the love that I see her carry into every relationship she builds within World Pulse and within her vey widespread community.
Eight years of action here within World Pulse. A woman born to make change happen. A much cherished sister.
I want to nominate Kirthi for her ability as an Activator. Th impact she has is astounding.
