Jessica attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. After years focused on designing clothes for people, she realized her strength was in drawing and painting art inspired by fashion and her creator, God. When her parents, artists themselves, opened a new church Jessica painted a picture of an angel to be hung in the sanctuary. One angel inspired her entire new collection, a series of paint…

What's Happening In Far Rockaway?....

Image
Hey World,

Far Rockaway is nearer than you may think. It's just an A train away to Queens, NY. -Be sure that it says Far Rockaway when you get on the train though. You may accidently end up in Ozone or Rockaway Park instead of your intended destination. It's a beautiful scenery though, once the train finally leaves the tunnel. You arrive outside surrounded by water of the peninsula, hopefully with the sun shining bright.

This summer Far Rockaway will experience their very own carnival in partnership with WIADCA, The West Indian American Day Carnival Association. They are the official association of the carnival we experience in Crown Heights, Brooklyn during labor day weekend. The office of Senator James Sanders hopes to make it an annual event, so don't delay if you'd like to participate. This is history in the making.

Putting CommUnity Ideas To Work!

Hello World! -Thank God For the Weekend!

Over the past three years I've worked to promote education, mentorship, emergency preparation and faith based initiatives in communities undergoing development. While serving to get the word out about services and supporting non-profit organizations and agencies, I've come across many amazing people and events in which many community members may not be aware.

I intend to highlight some of the entities in which I've engaged in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, East New York, Brooklyn, Far Rockaway, Queens, South Jamaica, Queens, Brownsville, Brooklyn, East Harlem, South Bronx, North Shore, Staten Island and more! I believe these are all areas to keep an eye on for old and new services which assist the community in addition to events which enrich the lives of friends and neighbors alike.

If you live in these areas and would like me to promote, host or cover your next community event ...Email your Beloved Community Ambassador Today! Blessmela…

Remember and Serve

Image
September 11th is a national day of service. More information by the Corporation for National Service. My love and prayers go to all affected by this day. We honor the memory of family, friends and loved ones. We also remember that on this day there continues to be life.

I join the Corporation for National Service in sharing a video campaign by 9/11day.org. featuring some of the 3,000 children who were born on September 11, 2001. 'They ask us to stop fostering hateful thoughts, and instead do at least one good deed on September 11 to honor the victims and responders on the 15th anniversary of the attack.'

9/11.org was founded by 'Two friends, David Paine and Jay Winuk, who lost his brother Glenn Winuk in the 9/11 attacks, have dedicated the better part of their lives over the past 14 years working to transform 9/11 from a day of evil into a day of good.'

Below are some ideas to get you started in New York this weekend. Check with your local and city volunteer agencie…

I Kept Living On Purpose!

Hello World,

I love to share what's going on and ways we can participate, collaborate, volunteer, donate, you get it. I'm living and sharing on purpose! -And so... I kept living to write again.

Saturday, September 10th is World Suicide Prevention day. I first learned of this important day back in 2011. A man near my job was thinking about jumping from the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center. Click here to read that archive. Please also click here for helping and understanding the suicidal person (Even if this is you right now) from the American Association of Suicidology (AAS)


Since writing that post years ago I've become passionate about this world health issue. I've also become a participant in Cycling the Globe for Suicide Prevention. It's an initiative by the International Association for Suicide Prevention to 'collectively cycle the circumference of the globe, 40,075 km or 24,900 miles, and to have participants cycling on every continent. You can cycle…

I'm Pregnant and Planning for Showers of Blessings!

Hello World!- I'm so prego.


For too long I've been carrying information and ideas to inform and inspire us into action. I'm sharing this with you today because you may also be pregnant. -There is a love for many things so people are always getting busy. The evidence of our passion is in preparing to give birth now.

Even the holy scriptures are comparable to our individual desires; "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations, Jeremiah 1:4-5. Geez, perhaps that was for me! -I claim it. What do you claim today? What dormant idea need you speak life over today?

(More inspiration by Alisha.)

I'm throwing us a shower! Yes, a virtual shower. It's for us to give thanks and share wisdom related to our new responsibilities, people, and the places we'll go. Thanks for stopping by today. Congratulations on the new things.

Be Blessed!

Hi World,

I did it! I cycled over 7 miles as a participant in 'Cycle Around the Globe' Thursday, September 10th. It was a challenge created by the International Association for Suicide Prevention to collectively cycle the circumference of the globe, 40,075 km or 24,900 miles, and to have participants cycling on every continent. I represented for the United States by way of Brooklyn!-Check the 11th name down in pic below or click here.


We will break the silence, speak up and encourage our neighbors, family and friends to acquire mental health visits and let them know why we want to see them tomorrow! The hashtag #seeyoutomorrow was the campaign from To Write Love On Her Arms this year. I fell in love with this awesome, creative 'non-profit movement' a couple years ago. -They were advertising an event in NY which was listed on Citylimits.org-
(P.S. City Limits has a Citizens Toolkit and UrbaNerd section you gotta check out!)
