A sturdy foundation Teenagers and kids don't regularly get recognized for their ideas, talents and knowledge. Pulse has been a creative and community-oriented method for us teenagers to have a say in society. Our minds, at this age, are full of motion, always finding the new way to attack something. Also, we are at the time of when we are discovering where we belong in this world full of diverse people. I believe that the foundation Pulse builds under our feet will positively contribute to our future and where we are heading in our lives.
