The End of 2014

with Jness



A month’s worth of moments to be experienced before the entrance of 2015. It will be the beginning of a new year, and the conclusion of a year that will never be revisited. As I reflect back to two years ago, I remember the day as if it was yesterday. When my Editor –in-Chief Raqui gave me the invitation to pen my very own column in the pages of Large In Charge Magazine, I responded with a yes. It was a chance to showcase my artwork while sharing my thoughts.

During a recent conversation with Raqui, she shared the realignment of her target sights for Large In Charge. The magazine will stop creating new pages and bring a close to a decade of serving the plus sized community. The online radio show will take the driver’s seat and continue the good work that the magazine began years ago.

It was both an honor and a privilege to have held a seat next to the Large In Charge family of writers while Raqui lead the charge. I look forward to being a part of her future projects. Great leaders need to be followed because it takes a team to accomplish great things.
