youth girls

Pretty Girl Teez

I am sooo excited to share this podcast episode with everyone!  One of my goals when starting this podcast was to give young girls who are doing great work in school and there community a voice.  Their are so many podcasts now that are geared and focused solely on adults, but the more I looked at my own group of young girls I realized that people need to know the positive things they are doing.  

I discovered Pretty Girl Teez when they started to follow our Instagram page.  After reading their business bio on their page I was interested in learning more about the company and the owner.  During this podcast you will learn more about the owner, Azaria Cherry and how Pretty Girl Teez and her non-profit, Z inc. came about.  

Here is her bio for you to read:

Azaria Cherry is a 13 year old, rising freshman at Maury High School in Norfolk, VA. Since the tender age of 6 she has dreamed of attending Spelman and aspires to become a pediatrician. In fact, she is one of 48 students selected within the entire city of Norfolk to participate in the prestigious Maury Medical and Health Specialities program. A medical partnership between her high school and Eastern Virginia Medical School that allows students to take medical courses on top of their required Advanced Diploma workload. Azaria’s love for science, human rights, and entrepreneurship has allowed her to form her own organization for inner city youth girls and her own clothing business selling positive affirmation tee-shirts. In her spare time, she enjoys numerous volunteer community engagements, cheering on her high school JV squad, Forensics, National Jr. Honor Society, FBLA, and Swimming. Although her plate is extremely full she maintains nothing less than a 3.8 GPA. Over the next couple of years she looks forward to tackling more personal goals that she has set for herself. 

I hope you are inspired by her story and goals for life.  I will forever be grateful for her, because by discovering her she forced me to research "How to record interviews for podcasting".  I kept making excuses as to why I couldn't record interviews, but because I wanted people to learn about this #Phenomenal young girl I challenged myself to find the solution on how to record an interview.  

Please support and follow her on all her social media pages.  She is having a Back to School drive in the Norfolk area.  So if you are in the area reach out to her to see if she needs any assistance.

Nice for What

Ok if you haven't listened to the song "Nice for What" by Drake I need you to stop what your doing and click here (clean version). In this week's episode, I share with you my running experience during my 10 mile Broad Street Run.  Completing that race was such a great accomplishment for me.  I never imagined myself running 10 miles, but God spoke to me during that run and told me that if I apply this method of one foot in front of the other.  I will conquered my dreams sooner rather than later.  

In the second part of this episode, I talk about how the song "Nice for What" is truly truly my anthem lol.  When I saw the hashtag #niceforwhat being used by Mrs. Kahlana Barfield Brown I wondered what she meant by that.  Then my cousin and few Philadelphia entrepreneurs made their own music video using this song and again I wondered who sung this song.  So one day after work I was listening to the radio, something I rarely do, and I heard the song.  I looked on my dashboard and saw the artist name and the song!!  I was sooo hype to have now put all the puzzle pieces together lol.  

During the episode, I discuss how this song relates to me in more ways than one.  The song is empowering and motivating.  Majority of today's music doesn't shed light on women who are making positive moves within there communities, careers and lives.  The top of discussion these days about women mainly revolve around our body types and so on.  So for me this song is like a breathe of fresh air.  Mothers I encourage you to listen to this song with your daughter and have a conversation about the lyrics.  

I would love to hear your thoughts about the song.  You can send your thoughts and comments to info@puregirlsinc.org and I will happily read and respond to your comments.

But what happens when those things are no longer in front of you.  What is your daily motivation to be the best version of you?  What are some things you could say and do for yourself to ensure that you are working on your dreams.

Level Up

Every New Year we set new goals and resolutions for ourselves, families, businesses and careers. The new motivational phrase that is being used on all social media sites these days is level up.  Level Up means to improve and grow in all areas of your life.  Many apply this phrase to their business, career, and persona goals.  Everyday we strive to be better version of ourselves each day.  We strive for empowerment and confidence each day.  

Don't get my wrong anything and everything is possible through Christ who strengthens me, but to make the daily commitment to work towards long terms goals can be a bit frightening.  In this episode, I speak about how I plan to "Level Up" this year.  I have so many things that need my attention on a daily basis, but I am determined to figure it out.  Writing in my P.U.R.E. Moments journal has helped me to reflect and stay on task with my to-do's.  I hope you enjoy this episode and I will talk with you guys soon!

Phenomenally Yours,
 

Najah

P.S.  The "P.U.R.E. Moments" journal will be available for purchase on January 28th.    

 

Are you afraid of the work?

In this week's episode, I talk about the challenges and struggles that we face when desiring to go after our dreams.  Making a dream come true is not an easy task and it takes a lot of commitment, belief and determination to have it come true. 

During the episode, I provide you with two steps that I believe will help transform your mindset.  We are only 5 weeks away from 2018 and it's my goal to help shift your mindset as we roll into the new year.  I can honestly say that I am afraid of all the work that is head of me, but I am more afraid if I let another year go by with and still having the same excuses and reasons as to why I have not elevated.
