Conversations is an exchange of ideas and information from exceptional women who are experts in their fields. They share successes, failures and yes comebacks. The current environment has brought to the forefront the need for women to have Plan Bs or a Plan Next for their personal and professional success. This series is the brainchild of Dr. Lovell Brigham Stiggers.

Outside of her full-time career in higher education, Mweni also works as a licensed Zumba Fitness instructor. Years ago, she “accidentally” discovered Zumba while leaving a step aerobics class at her local YMCA. She soon took her first Zumba class and was immediately hooked. As she navigated a difficult time, Mweni found that the Zumba Fitness program ministered to her – body, mind and soul. Now, as a licensed instructor since 2012, she takes joy in ministering to others herself through her love of Zumba. In addition to her fitness certification, Mweni also holds a Juris Doctorate.
A Year Like No Other...
This year has been been like no other in so many ways. We are ending in the midst of a pandemic. Many of us have lost loved ones or friends or know others who have. We have seen our brothers and sisters marching in the streets. And we have the first future Vice President who is a woman of color. Yet even in this season, we have to still find a way to find to find a purpose and find our greatness. Reflect upon 2020 but also look ahead to what the future holds. Know that I'm with you even if all we can do is have Conversations!

Conversations...A Time of Change
The world is changing around us suddenly. Brothers and sisters from different backgrounds and different races have come together to start conversations that are leading to change. They are beginning to get a better understanding of past hurts as a way to bring unity in the future. That does not mean agreeing on everything, but it can mean it's time for a change. Let us make the most of this opportunity born out of the tragic death of George Floyd. Change is a part of life. Change often begins with a conversations. Let's start many different conversations and watch change happen.

In this season…Many of us had plans for this season that did not include the coronavirus and COVID-19. I think of those who suddenly lost loved-ones who were with them just a month ago. Yet, life does happen and will continue to do so. That’s why it’s important to have a Plan B for when life happens. Take this time to evaluate your plans and make this season meaningful.
This season has given me time to reflect on what I can do and not what I can’t. While I can’t have this amazing conference that I planned to have in April, (and yes, something special is coming in its place) I can do other things. I can use this time on other talents such as my writing. I have written a couple of books that I hadn't mentioned or promoted in some time. Now is the perfect time for reading since many of us are spending less time out and more time inside. So, I am asking you all to do a couple of things.
Until next time, make this your season to be blessed!
