At this time, allow me to introduce you all to the one and only, one of a kind Ms. Ja. She is a person whose presence speaks for itself. She brings the light and the life to the room. Her smile will blind you but her personality will give you no other option except to smile. She is the kind of person that you want to have in your corner but not to have you cornered. Ms. Ja will let you know where the lines are and when they have been crossed.
Now Ms. Ja, she is confident and secure in who she is, where she’s going and never shows weakness. It’s not that she has never experienced a weakness, it’s just that she will take the lessons that life sends her way and truly learn from them. In my brief time knowing Ms. Ja, I’ve only seen her exhibit one sign of weakness and that was when her mother died. But even then, she knew how to give praises to her God for what he allowed her to get through. That is proof of a strong person.
So you’re probably asking why is Ms. Ja in this room if she has it all together? Well, she is who I look up to, women can learn a lot from her, they can learn how to not depend on a man to make you relevant because she’s knows that she is relevant before a man even approaches her. I’ve learned from her how to work with people who you may not necessarily like but you have to learn to tolerate. In a sense, she is who I desire to be. She has personally shown me how to accept myself for who I am and to learn to love and realize the gifts that I have been bestowed with. She is bold and brave living in a city that she moved to a few years ago and it is her and her son making it on their own. She’s raising her son to be a man who mother’s will be fighting each other for to bring home to their daughter’s. And the one thing that I adore and love more about her than anything is that love that she has for her son. She is truly selfless when it comes to him, she will do without to make sure that he has whatever he needs. When you look at the two of them together, there is no question what a mother’s love looks like. Welcome to the room Ms. Ja!
