Letter From The Editor

Dear Readers,

It is with great optimism that I believe our new normal is finally happening.  Yet there is still a lot we don’t know and may never know.  I know this past year has changed me and my values.  It has also changed everything in our businesses.  All of our companies suffered a severe loss of clients and projects.  I am happy to say that in the past few months this has begun to change. Clients and projects are coming back.  I hope you and yours have new opportunities and a brighter year ahead too.

The world finally experienced runway fashion shows for the first time in a year and we are proud to include this feature again in The Light Magazine. Schools are opening, entertainment has come back and social happenings are also being held, and we are happy to showcase them in The Scoop.   We are excited that travel is opening up and we will be able to continue to feature places to visit in our future Escapes section.

This issue has some very informative and important articles. We hope you enjoy it.

We are happy to introduce a very informative article for parents to read about preparing their teens for college, contributed by Naomi Steinberg. Naomi founded Apply Yourself Educational Consulting and quickly established herself as one of South Florida’s most sought-after college admissions advisors. A graduate of Harvard University, Naomi has more than a decade of experience as an alumnae interviewer of undergraduate applicants to Harvard. She is a member of many professional associations. Naomi travels extensively to visit colleges in the U.S. and attends national conferences.  Thank you, Naomi, for your contribution to this issue.

Sadly, South Florida lost a really valuable treasure in our community, Jim Dunn. He will be greatly missed.

We wish each of you a wonderful summer with family and friends.  Stay healthy, be happy and enjoy our new normal.  God Bless.

Warm Regards

Roberta B. Turner
