Our Community Leader for the month of June is Mojito_BZCL.
You can find Madeline in the 30 + Trying to Conceive, Pregnant or just Visiting: 30--trying-to-conceive-pregnant-or-just-visiting-f1003.html
and the Working Parents: working-parents-f159.html
message boards. She has completely revived the Working Parents Board by posting new threads and is always there providing support and helpful advice in all of her areas. For this she deserves the spotlight this month.
Thank you for all that you do for the BabyZone Community.
Madeline wanted to share a little bit about herself:
Community Leader Name: Mojito_BZCL
Community Leader since: (Date) July 2011
Board(s) I lead and why I love it: 30 + Trying to Conceive, Pregnant or just Visiting and Working Parents. I love it because while the boards have a small number of posters the women who post are so warm and supportive.
Info to share: (How did you find your way to BabyZone? What inspired you to become a Community Leader? Are you trying to conceive? Are you pregnant? How many children do you have? Tell us about your family! What are your hobbies/interests outside of BabyZone? What do you enjoy about being a CL at BZ? Any other information you’d like to share?)
I found my way to baby zone when I was pregnant in 2010 and started posting on the November 2010 DDC. I had found some other boards, but found the boards on BZ to be the most welcoming and supportive, without any of the cattiness or sometimes cruel comments I saw on other boards. I also got a TON of support from the breastfeeding boards here. I decided to become a Community Leader because I wanted to be able to give back to the BZ community.
As of now I am TTC, but that could change in a few short days/weeks.
I have one daughter and DH and I live 2000 miles away from our families. DH and I moved away from the east coast so we could live our lives in the mountains. We love to ski, hike and bike, and love taking our daughter with us when we can.
