Editor's Note

Inspired by Karen Gaffney

Women face challenges on a daily basis and we have a great offering of some of their stories in our pages. The Down Syndrome Family Network (DSFN) will hold its 2nd annual World Down Syndrome Day Conference on March 21 at the Hyatt Regency in Trinidad and March 22 at Magdalena Grand Resort and Spa in Tobago. US citizen Karen Gaffney who has Down syndrome will be in Trinidad and Tobago and she will be the keynote speaker at the conference, she shares her story with our readers.

Also, if you love books and you love to read then the insights given by the Founder and Executive Director of NGC Bocas Lit Fest Marina Salandy-Brown into the workings of the festival will ensure that you find yourself at Nalis for the festival which takes place from April 25 to 28.

In this issue you will also find the thought-provoking and always amusing insights from your favourite columnists as well and ASPIRE Woman of the Year Dr Sherene Kalloo tackles the ever popular 21 Questions. Congratulations to Dr Kalloo on her award.
