The last couple of weeks have been fraught with anxiety and tension as we awaited to see who got chosen to be the voice of the voiceless in the World Pulse community. We finally woke up to the list of 31 Power Voices. Having interacted with quite a number of the Correspondents and even being in the same community with some, coupled with going through the profiles of the others, I must commend the Listeners and WP as a whole for the most difficult task that was tackled to perfection! All the 31 women deserved the honor of being the Voices of the Future this year, congratulations. I believe that having gone through most of the posts of my fellow applicants, we were all awesome, and it must have been quite a headache choosing the ones to qualify for the training program. That was a job well done. Personally, I am amazed at the tons of encouragement, inspiration and empowerment I amassed in this forum in such a short time, its unbelievable! I have come to consider World Pulse my second home, since here I have made friends, been mentored, shared my ideas, been shown consideration in even very small matters, been listened to, inspired and many other benefits that have eluded me in real life. The love here is just awesome! I thank World Pulse for sharing the training toolkit with all the applicants, makes us feel part of the party! I would like to take this opportunity to encourage my fellow applicants who didn't make it that despite there being a next time, a win for one woman is a win for the universe. We are all winners, none of us are losers. In the same vein, I hope the World Pulse family will continue to give us a hand in whatever fashion, to realize our visions for our communities, even in a small way. Teach us to fish. Wishing us all the very best in our endeavors. God Bless Women, God Bless World Pulse, God Bless the World!
