The year has literally flown by, I can't believe it's already December. To many, December is a month of in depth self evaluation and stock taking; taking that walk down memory lane to see if you accomplished the goals you set at the beginning of the year.It's also about looking at your present to see what has worked for you or what you need to eliminate before you head on to the new year.
Just the other day I started this blog as an avenue for women from all walks of life to talk about their daily achievements and struggles and to encourage each other through interviews , features and discussions. That was in May, six months later and this blog has grown in terms of content, readership and interaction.
I have enjoyed compiling every issue of The Ladies Room and in the process met ,interacted and networked with great individuals. With growth comes room for bigger better things. It is my desire to keep you coming back to The Ladies Room. I'm looking forward to bringing to you more diverse, empowering and entertaining issues in the future, but for now let me give you a preview of the eye candy inspiration in our current issue.
On the cover of the December issue we feature US based part-time Kenyan model and broadcast journalism student Bornah Adanya Anaelik. Inside the issue, learn more about the 'No Means No' anti-rape campaign under the leadership of Adelaide Onyango. Share in The Rojas' love story of how they met and learn how Chinelle Rojas copes with being an army wife. Get up close and personal with Rwandese author, poet, human rights activist and motivational speaker, Ornella Umubyeyi and find out why this 20 year old believes wisdom and humility are the true keys to success. Get inspired by 'powerful poetic words' of Tanzanian born UK based poet Jacque Kabacha also known as Pretty Poet.
Join the round table discussion with three ladies who are talking about their experience with online dating. Share your thoughts on Tyler Perry's latest movie release 'For Colored Girls in our reviews.

It's my hope that you will enjoy this month's issue. The Ladies Room cannot be a place of open arms and hearty conversations without you. I look forward to your comments, suggestions and articles.
Happy Month of December!
