Eva Greene Wilson aka "SocaMom" is the editor of and Author of Anancy's Family Reunion. Her blog posts have been featured on, and republished in b3 Caribbean Magazine (print and online) and Outlish Magazine (online). She has interviewed soca artists Bunji Garlin and Fay-Ann Lyons, former Essence Editor in chief Constance White, fashion trailblazer Anya Ayoung-Chee, Jamaican TV personality and beauty queen, Kamila McDonald Alcock, Trinidadian stage and screen actress Hazelle Goodman, and other leaders in the Caribbean community about connecting children to Caribbean culture and balancing motherhood, higher education, and career. She was most recently honored with two Black Weblog Awards - Best New Blog and Best Parenting Blog.

Pascalle Onika Goddard aka “Onika Pascal”  is a career savvy supermom-certified Sagittarian-professional introvert-with a funny bone, born in Trinidad, raised in Brooklyn, NY and now residing in Maryland with her 16 year old son. She completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at Medgar Evers College and her Masters of Professional Studies at The George Washington University. In 2008 she self-published a book of poetry entitled, “Collections of a See Through Soul - Portraits,” written under the pen name Onika Pascal. Shortly after, in 2009, she released a second volume of poetry titled, “Collections of a See Through Soul – Bardvillian Symphonies”.  She has contributed to Outlish Magazine (online) and eWoman Magazine (online). She hopes to release more literary works in the future.

Schnelle “Nellie” Acevedo is a busy mom of two young boys (2 and 4), she is a career woman by day and a self proclaimed fitness junkie by night. Her blog, Brooklyn Active Mama is a positive community that focuses on demonstrating to all women that you can always find time for fitness. She features a Weekly Wednesday Workout and a Friday Fitness Check-In series where she encourages her readers to check in and remain accountable for their fitness and nutrition goals weekly. In addition to getting in the gym 5 times weekly, Nellie became inspired to become a licensed Zumba instructor at Fitbloggin’ 12. She now teaches a regular high energy Saturday Zumba class in Brooklyn. Since beginning to blog Nellie has lost 27lbs (and counting)!

AlysiaSimone is the founding editor of an online exploration of the Caribbean-American experience. She is also project manger for Witness Project, an arts based youth initiative that is working to change the culture of violence in Guyana, South America - but her most important role is that of mom. Addressing a roomful of poker-faced Caribbean ministers is a walk in the park compared to the work of raising her two amazingly intelligent yet "headbangingly" frustrating teenage boys in their home in Brooklyn, New York.
