Women on a MISSION

Meet Jensine Larsen of World Pulse

Meet Jensine Larsen of World Pulse

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a global DJ of ideas and an unstoppable creator. I’ve noticed I don’t often feel like something is “wrong” in my life:  I’m much more interested in finding out what exactly isn’t working and how to move though it for a  positive outcome.

What do you enjoy most about being editor of World Pulse?
Being face to face with some of the bravest women leaders of our time.

What was your vision for creating a Magazine that supports women?
Coming out of the Amazon and Burma as a freelance journalist I dreamed of a media source that could broadcast the wisdom of the women leaders there to the world.   Actually, my vision for World Pulse was less about showing how can we support women, but showing how these unheard voices carry essential knowledge that will support all of humanity.  I really saw that those who face the world’s greatest challenges, are our greatest advisors for solving them.

Tell us about the organizations your company/magazine supports?
We love to feature innovative grassroots initiatives that are designed and led by women, initiatives that you wouldn’t normally hear about, but are having a profound impact on lives in the community, such as girls leadership program in Zimbabwe, legal clinics for land rights in Guatemala, solar engineer training for illiterate women in India and more.  We also feature products and art that women’s cooperatives are creating for economic sustainability.

What life event or incident made you choose to support them?
Working alongside the women of Burma who had fled ethnic cleansing under the dictatorship.  I was awed by how bright the flame of determination burned in their eyes, and their voices carried clear visions for the future of their country.  They were obviously going to work for the rest of their lives to work for democracy and safety for their families.   Standing with them, I realized that I would do everything I could to partner with them, and that it would be a great honor to do so.

From where do you draw inspiration?
From music, from food, colorful fabrics, poetry, dancing, art, and cool breezes through the windows of a tropical night train. And always, always the voice of a woman with a powerful vision for herself and the world.  It never fails to bring me goosebumps.

What one thing would you like to learn this year?
In this Olympic year I am very curious to learn from the women of China about how the world can best engage, support, and learn from them.  And, always, how to be a better and better leader with our amazing team.

What is the one thing you would like readers to know about you?  About World Pulse?
I’d like readers to know that the revolution is already well underway.  The revolution for a world where women aren’t merely free, but empowered so greatly as to be unstoppable.  A world where women can transform her life, as well as the lives of those around her simply by raising her voice.   My life is a commitment to seeing this revolution realized.
