Editor's Note

Those amazing archievers

They are all around us busily achieving, accomplishing their goals and making their mark while some women just prefer to sit on the sidelines.

Not Pandita Indrani Rampersad, President and founder of the Trinidad and Tobago Hindu Women's Organisation; not jewelry designer Kristy Collado who takes us on a journey, with her designs, to tribal villages and native lands; not Annette Knott. T&T Chef de Mission to the London Olympics and definitely not a super oustanding Spanish interpreter Doris Millan, a woman who has taught presidents and prime ministers how to speak Spanish.

Millan is the subject of our Real Women, Real Stories this week and was introduced to us by former Express editor Kathy Ann Waterman. Thank you Kathy Ann. To hear writer Lorraine Waldropt-Ferguson tell it, Millan is even much more than what you described and it is indeed a pleasure introducing her to our readers.

All of these women make their debut in Woman this week, sharing their life stories with us and giving us an insight into what it's like to exist in their worlds.

Adding to that we have thrown in some current issues and our usual tidbits on beauty and style while resident lifestyle and etiquette columnist Marguerite Gordon offers up some much needed advice on the social graces which are very much in demand especially around this time of the year.

Please enjoy and remember, be kind to each other.
