Guest Speakers
Ayesha K Mustafaa, a true Historian, spoke about Womens Role in History from the begining of time. OMG

Nyame Selassie, Gangter to Guru author and Yogi, led the Ladies in exercise and more. All participant at all exercising levels enjoy the respite. When they hit the floor I did not hear anyone asking if there were mats, or towels. Talking about being in the moment. Just Lovely.
Nyame became a fan of Ayesha K Mustafa. I will ask her to share her story/journey

Dr. Kathye Jenkins, a First Lady to her Minister husband, spoke frankly and honestly about Women protecting themselves against STDsAIDSHIV. Dr Jenkins is the founder of a faith based community interaction organization, just keep it one hundred. A Classy Lady, funny and fun. Kathye offered our Lunch Prayer

Samia Bano, spoke frankly why she searched for Inner Peace and Happiness ("Me To") and how she achieved peace and happiness for herselft and how her practices and philosphy can lead to Global Peace.

Sherri Franklin, spoke about the largest Economic Engine today and how her organization the Think and Grow Lab is offering the opportunity for people of color to be at the table from the begining. Providing a fair play ground for people of color to partipate. Being a Contender.

Kathleen Noel Thomas, an Island gurl, was a pleasure as well, her honest conversation about our body and sexual health was educational and thought provoking. Her spirit of sharing and wanting for her sister what she wants for herself was evident not only in Nola's presentation but with every Presenter, Vendor,and Guests

Dr. Zakiyyah Rasheed, OMG this young Emergency Doctor, took our Conference setting round and intimate as she discussed the Areas of concern requested. It was well thought out, had total room participation, shared and taught. It was beautiful to see.

Alicia Florez Harris (MsLeesha's Cover Up), kilt it as always with her Cover Up Show and the many uses and Demos. Thank you for sharing as well, and contributing to the Health Wellness and Zen workshop.

Lip Sense, an Organic Make up line. The long lasting Lip Stick was a hit. I can't wait to purchase mines. I know my color. Lovely Product.

Dr. Malika Salaam-Ambolley, (International Education Consultant & Empowerment Coach etc., etc., etc.). Whew this Sister , even after a long day and jet lag Rocked the Circle. She offered a hand out packet that was much coveted. Folks did not leave any packets on tables.

As a Host, it was beautiful to see, hear and feel the Positive Vibe (One Body One Love) in the Room and the refusal to entertain the contrary by every one in attendance. Keeping it Irie.
