    Welcome to World Pulse from a World Pulse sister in the deep south USA. Women with expertise in technology are so needed in our organization, as they are around the world. So much of the empowerment through education we achieve would not be possible without those who teach how to access technology.

    Your visions are one step closer to achievement when you network in such a strong group of empowered people. You are only one person, but you are smart enough to know that our power is exponential when combined with other powerful people.

    I look forward to hearing more of your voice in WorldPulse.

    Continue to be a blessing. Yvette Warren
