What motivated me to join Pulse

Blogging – Another first in my life – Courtesy Pulse 🙂

My Journey of Pulse

It all started in December 2013 when I got this opportunity to volunteer for Orange day and spent a day at HelpAge (St. Anthony’s Home for the Aged) in Mumbai India. I met 90 beautiful aunties, aged above 75. We sang together, danced together, and played together. There was a cake cutting ceremony for them. A group of school students also came to meet these lovely ladies; it was a treat to watch little kids and these beautiful ladies dancing together. It was a great day of camaraderie, giving and receiving.

Emotions were running high when I was returning. I had a mixed feeling of happiness, joy and sorrow.

This day had a huge impact on my life.

That day I decided Imagetwo things

 First – I will never leave my parents alone

Second – I must do my bit to contribute for well-being of society.

And then came the Pulse, I grabbed this opportunity and gave my best shot to qualify for the same, and as they say where there is a will there is a way. And today I am GSK’s Pulse 2014 Volunteer and I will be working with Malaria Consortium stationed at Bangkok.
