The Jubilee issue of The People We Are June 2017 is online! You will find a colorful package with lots of resources, articles and materials on PWA activities in the last month and for the past 25 years.

The member feature is on Marina Di Pietrantonio, Counselor for Cultural, Social, Economic and Youth Development at the Municipality of Riano. She is an endless source of ideas and projects and her latest baby, “D’Altra Moda”, won the PWA ME2-contest. PWA is delighted to tell her story and promote her inspiring project that valorizes local talent and recycles existing resources!

President Valerie Baxter has written an impressive “walk down the memory lane” article and you can read about past and current, bold and relentless women who have contributed to PWA in so many invaluable ways! Browse through the photos and see how many faces you recognize!

You will find the photo recap of our May Conference on Nutrition with our brand new Sponsorship Director Cecilia Bersani and the Self Defence Course at Villa Borghese. I put together some physical and online resources on getting ready for the summer and the series of poems by Elvira la Rocca and paintings by Rossana Chiani is continued with a new theme. So wait no more, start browsing!

This is the last issue I will be putting together as a dear friend and extremely experienced editor, Ivana Madonna, will be taking over the position in September. I will continue to contribute with monthly articles and am curious to see to which new heigths The People We Are will rise with the new team of editors. It has been enpowering and rewarding to work with a team of such talented and energized women and I will always look back with fond memories.

Continue to send your stories to ― it’s your mouthpiece, make the most of it!

Happy readings and see you at PWA events next year,
