Claytine Nisbett (Lead Editor) is a community activist, author, blogger, entrepreneur, and an “encourager of women”. She gets joy in seeing other women progress and accomplish their goals. Due to this, she has coined the term “Ujima Woman“. An Ujima Woman is a woman who believes in the power of women working together so they can accomplish their individual and collective goals. She started Ujima Solutions Magazine a few years ago  to give young people within the Caribbean a voice to express their views on socio-economic problems that affect them. However, she felt it was important that they not only express their views but suggest the changes and initiatives they would like to see take place. With the relaunch of Ujima Solutions Magazine in July 2017, a few changes have been made to the criteria for submissions and the structure of the project that will hopefully help in its growth. She hopes via this project and her other ventures she continues to be a change agent in youth and gender advocacy and development.
