YoTrip Presents: Dr. Wachell McKendrick “A Woman People Should Know”


YoTrip Presents: Dr. Wachell McKendrick “A Woman People Should Know”

Dr. Wachell McKendrick

Below is my eighth feature blog post in honor of Women’s History Month.  It is important that we celebrate the beauty and brains of women. Please enjoy learning about these fascinating women and then make sure you support them in their passions, projects, and products

Who are you? Please share something about yourself and your business.

I am Dr. Wachell McKendrick and I am currently a college professor of Social Work at Florida A&M University.  I like to say that my career has been via the “scenic route” as I was a teen mother when I graduated high school as an Honors student at 17 years old, and entered college (Florida State University). After becoming a military spouse (my daughter’s father) at 19 I continued my education and completed my bachelor’s degree with two children at age 21. While in the military I counseled military personnel and their families who had substance abuse issues. My work continued to be in the Social work arena (elderly, substance abuse, domestic violence victims, program development, and clinical supervision) for the next 20 years. At that time I was going through a divorce, left Miami (with my youngest child now, age 9), my hometown, and returned to school to pursue my dream of a PhD. I completed my PhD in 2011 at the school I began in, Florida State University. So, I guess you can say that I had come full circle. My current focus is Family relations and empowering women.

What makes you a “Woman People Should Know”?

Having experienced many of the same issues I was counseling others for, my ability to sympathize and empathize with others and their plight in life add a personal dimension to my work (I consider it my life’s ministry). My determination and passion for reaching goals I have set for myself which also impact the lives of others, literally. My dedication to social justice, the family, and their healthy functioning is why people should know me. I have a passion for social work and not just for social work’s or social work research’s sake, but for social action and change in the lives of people I teach, counsel, and encounter in my community

When did you find out that you had that something special that you wanted to share with the world?

I would guess I realized this at an early age, being an older sister. I have always felt a responsibility to others and their welfare. If I could change it, defend it, then I was at the front doing so. I was called “Hercules” as a young girl, I think it went deep into my psyche (J). I realized that counseling was a mechanism for effecting change while in high school. While remaining in my assigned school while I was pregnant (a choice I made with the encouragement of my father), the school psychologist (a woman and role model)and the sessions we had weekly were impactful and I wanted to provide the same. I was naturally a caretaker and listener, so it made sense to major in psychology.

Where can people find out more about you?

Wachell.mckendrick@famu.edu and on Facebook

How do you make it all happen?

As alluded to earlier, my family’s support from my adolescence, women mentors (Church Secretary, Sunday School teacher, Choir Directress, and others) in my church, in my family ( my aunts on both sides of my family tree who were learned women despite not having degrees), and  in my profession. Ultimately, my belief in God as directing my steps and somewhere in all of it, belief that with Him guiding I could reach goals I set for myself.

What makes you a “Woman People Should Know”?

I am a 2 year breast cancer survivor. When I was diagnosed in 2011, nothing mattered to me but my fight to conquer the cancer that was trying to take over my body. I focus on living and trusting in the Lord to get me through it. As a result I am now cancer free and I promised the Lord I would spend the rest of my life telling others how good God is!

I want people to know that nothing beats having faith in God. I understand that tomorrow is not promised. I live with the believe in a win/win situation. If I die, I will go to be with the Lord. If I live I will get to be here with my friends and family to impact the world.

Below is my sixth feature blog post in honor of Women’s History Month.  It is important that we celebrate the beauty and brains of women. Please enjoy learning about these fascinating women and then make sure you support them in their passions, projects, and products

Who are you? My name is Dr. Loretta Faith Harris, but I live by Faith. I am the second of five children to the parents of Meshach and Delrene Harris. My humble beginnings are in Pahokee “Muck city” Florida where I take pride and joy. There is a lot in a name and I believe that God divinely ordained my name. Faith foreshadowed my life’s encounters and experiences, which required COMPLETE and TOTAL Faith in God.

What makes you a “Woman People Should Know”? I believe that my genuine, transparent, and honest approach to share my life experiences make me a woman people should know. Life is everything but a fairy tale! When you have survived tragedy, adversity, and even experienced death, you adopt a new perspective towards life encounters. My experiences of overcoming death-defying odds and making it to my eventual triumph are chronicled in my award-winning memoir, “The Journey Less Traveled: Choose to Turn Your Tragedy into Triumph.” So, I say to anyone reading this blog, “Take the time” to get to know the true woman.

When I rise in the morning before my feet hit the ground I whisper, “Good morning Holy Spirit” because my Father and I are one. There is a reason I face my fears and skydive, rock climb, and run tracks. My shortcomings remind me every single day that my doctorate is just a title and had it not been for the GRACE of God, I would not be here! I am confident in who I am in Christ, yet humbled in spirit. Yes, I am a woman you should get to know.

When did you find out that you had that something special that you wanted to share with the world? I remember this day as if it were yesterday. I was a preteen, attending a church service and my mother took one look at me and said, “You are going to do something great with children.” I was holding a baby at that time. I did not think that I would end up becoming an educator, but I always knew that I shared a special connection with children. I always loved the Lord and would spend lots of time in my room as a child reading, dissecting, and writing down information from the bible. I understood everything clearly, as I read and when things were not that clear, I would pray and ask God to help me understand His word. When, “I” knew for myself that I had something special was when I experienced the LOVE of the Lord!

Where can people find out more about you? People call me the, Social Media Queen” because I can be found across the internet. Here are a few outlets that will give you a good overview of who I am and what I do:

How do you make it all happen? I can do ALL things though Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13). Amen. I appreciate this HONOR.

YoTrip Presents: Marian A. Clay, “A Woman People Should Know”

Marian J Blige 2012

Below is my fifth feature blog post in honor of Women’s History Month.  This post is near and dear to me because it is my SHERO, my joy, my inspiration, the wind beneath my wings, my Mother. It is important that we celebrate the beauty and brains of women. Please enjoy learning about these fascinating women and then make sure you support them in their passions, projects, and products.

Who are you? Please share something about yourself and your passion.

Marian Anderson Clay is the third of seven children raised with love by her parents Joe L. and Ruth Anderson. I am a child of God, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt, and a cousin. I am an active retiree, that loves the Lord, my family and my life! I was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia.  I attribute my upbringing to both sets of my family life; we spent quality time together and enjoyed being around each other.

 I have a passion for volunteering. I have been a volunteer since my youth working with individuals in my neighborhood and then I really became serious when my children were in school (I was a member of the PTA and PTS). I was instrumental in getting a traffic light put in on a major highway to help keep my children and others safe.

From 1994-2002 I worked as a hospice volunteer with St. Joseph then Trinity Hospice. My patients were dealing with all forms of cancer, HIV/AIDS, men, women who were young and old. In 1996, I was named the Employee of Year for my volunteer efforts at the V.A. Medical Center in Augusta, Georgia. Also I won a national award the Golden Rule Award from JC Penney’s for my volunteer efforts via the United Way, for my work with hospice patients. In conjunction with the Golden Rule Award I received a letter of recognition from President William “Bill” Jefferson Clinton.

Currently I volunteer with the Compass Mentoring Services Inc.; we work with at risk youth from ages 3-19 who are in need of life skills. We also assist the parents with coping and parenting skills. I also work with the Lydia Project, a group that focuses on women who have had any form of cancer. This organization provides bags of encouragement as women go through their cancer treatment. I work as a prayer partner and caller for the women in need. I am a long-time walker in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life and I participate in the University Hospital’s Miracle Mile.

What makes you a “Woman People Should Know”?

I am people oriented and I have a love of and for people. I never met a person that I forget. I ask the Lord to help me remember people and he continually does that in my daily encounters. I am God-fearing and I have a strong Christ-like personality. My family (especially my three children Yolanda, Greta, and William as well as my grandchildren) are essential to what keeps me going and growing. I humbly submit myself to serve and be of service.

When did you find out that you had that something special that you wanted to share with the world?

In my formable years, I realized I had a need a love and a desire to serve people. I made it my mission to give back to others; it is my life’s work. If I meet a person in need, I do my best to try to offer them assistance. My parents instilled this concept in me and I have lived by it and did my best to pass it along to my children and grandchildren. My parents also taught me the importance of being responsible and it has stayed with me all of my life.

Where do you see yourself in the times to come?

My destiny has been decided and I know that my life has been full. I want to be wherever I am needed to serve. My aspirations are to enjoy myself no matter what comes because I know who holds my future. I am always pressing towards the high calling, which for me is Christ Jesus.

How do you make it all happen?

I realize that I can do nothing myself. I have to put all my trust and faith in the Lord. I do know this,All things work together for the good, for those who love the Lord and are called according to his purpose.” I received a birthday card that said the following: “A women ought to appreciate her own beauty, value her own wisdom, and be surrounded by people who couldn’t agree more.”

Who are you? Please share  something about yourself and your business.

I am originally from Philadelphia which is a major influence on my personal style.  My mother was a very fashion conscious woman and always emphasized that being well dressed at all time was very important to how people treat you.  She instilled in me a sense of individualism as she always stated that “she did not want to see herself coming and going”.  That is the foundation for my fashion sense which is highlighted in Sunnie’s Closet philosophy.  We treat each customer as a prized friend that we want to come visit often to get the items that match their personal style.  We keep mental notes to their size, profession, interests and needs to maximize their future shopping experiences with us.  We also send out personal messages when we have something special just for them.I believe it is the extra smile and extra mile we are willing to go for our customers that will raise the benchmark of customer service.
What makes you a “Woman People Should Know”?
I like to encourage everyone to live their dreams and to get away from dream killers.  I have experience in a wide array of areas from promotions, talent management, legal, banking, education, pageantry, network marketing, fundraising and tv production.  I am always willing to share my past experiences and contacts with anyone who is serious and willing to listen and take notes.
I am also a good listener and love bouncing ideas and new collaborative possibilities. Sunnie’s Closet is in its infancy stage and there are more facets to come.
When did you find out that you had that something special that you wanted to share with the world?
I always liked to organize, initiate and explore new learning experiences and opportunities both for personal growth as well as financial.  I was the class president 11th and 12th grade and involved in every committee possible.  I started  a girls club in 7th grade that took us all the way through 12th grade and giving events before I was old enough to sign the contract.  I always liked to motivate others to “go for it” of course as long as all the angles were reviewed first.
Clothes was a  passion as long as I can remember and I feel that my love and my desire to help others be confident in their own skin has culminated into Sunnie’s Closet.  I also enjoy shopping for men.  My baby brother was as passionate as I am and we would shop often together.

How do you make it all happen?
Firstly, I do things I enjoy and always try to have fun no matter what I am doing.  I have goals that I am running toward and am committed with God’s help to reach them.  Time is always of the essence.  The key piece is prioritizing your daily activities to reach the desired results and staying focused. It is easy to say what you want but the test is what are you going to do about it.  Organization is mandatory when wearing multiple hats and increases   efficiency and minimizes stress.  I continuously look for new resources, keep an open mind and remain flexible to make necessary changes or adjustments.

YoTrip Presents: Jane Turner ” A Woman People Should Know”


YoTrip Presents: Jane Turner “A Woman People Should Know”

 Below is my third feature blog post in honor of Women’s History Month. It is important that we celebrate the beauty and brains of women. Please enjoy learning about these fascinating women and then make sure you support them in their passions, projects, and products.

 

Who are you?  Please share something about yourself and your business?      

I am Jane Turner, a mother, grandmother and a friend to many.  I especially take pride in knowing that through my life’s work, as a social worker, I have been able to touch and be touched by many people with whom I have come into contact.  Many of these experiences have been mutually life altering. The outcomes were not always what was desired,  but for the most part, the best that the Universe had to offer.  I am a firm believer that all things work for good.

I am a graduate of Tuskegee (Institute) University, an ongoing  student at Crealde School of Art, the Maitland Art Center and batik student of Shalini Tandon.     As stated beforehand,  my life long career was in human services, where I worked as a social worker, supervisor and administrator for over thirty years, in several states.  In 2006, I retired from the State Of Florida, since that time, my primary interest has been focused on the pursuit of  artistic expression.    For me, this has taken many forms that include, the visual arts as well as the written word.  I perceive these mediums to be more influential and powerful than any gun, knife or fist in changing the world for the betterment of mankind.

My childhood was spent traveling with my military family, from Alabama roots, to live in many states in the U.S., Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Caribbean.  Early in life, my mother introduced me to paint-by-numbers projects, which became the catalyst  for an exciting adventure into the world of art.

I have always drawn, sketched and painted.  As a child,  I regarded this  as a means of filling up space and time, as we traveled from place to place.  Little did I know that I was soaking up a wealth of varied artistic and cultural exposures that would influence me later in life.

Currently,  I am a published and exhibiting artist.   I work in acrylic, oil, pastel, graphite,  and charcoal.   I have also branched out to include batik, sculpture and  photography in my repertoire.    I am the artist for a team that conduct Heritage Workshops for school age children ( tri-county public schools and private schools), at  The Hannibal Square Heritage Center in Winter Park, Fl.   Lastly, I am a member of the Orlando Renaissance Writers  Guild.  Through that association I am developing as a short story writer,  published my first article and I am working on an impending book.  I also work closely with Habitat for Humanity to insure housing for  low-income families.

I reside in Eatonville, Florida, the oldest Black Incorporated Township  in America.   Most of my work has been completed in Eatonville.  My work is signed,  Jane Lily or Jlily to honor my ancestors.

What makes you a woman who people should know?

I strongly believe that I have a story to tell.  Especially from the vantage point of history.  As a woman I am proud to be  a descendent of strong , determined African people who continue to carve out a place  in this some time, harsh and unfriendly landscape, that we call America.   First and foremost, I grew up feeling the pulse of people, in the U.S. and outside of this country.  I learned  that no matter the language, race or nationality, or the color of skin that we all have more in common than differences.   I lived  through the civil rights movement and was a student at Tuskegee Institute  during that critical time, when pressure was  brought to bear that called for change to American society.  I am proponent of the Salad Bowl Theory, that like a salad, each ingredient is different, but brings its own unique qualities and flavors  to the bowl to make it complete.    As the U.S. progress, each race, each culture and ethnicity has something to contribute to make a whole.  My concern is that African-American’s  will have a strong presence, in present and future contributions.  It is imperative that we know and respect our history, no matter the pain, shame or hardship and teach others.   African American history is uniquely  American, just as Jazz.  Our color did not change, but our languages, nationalities and cultures were deliberately obliterated, when we reached these shores  and merged into one- called African-American history.   Our people had to endure much to get us to today.   My proudest moments are  when I am sharing this in a Heritage workshop or when I am explaining a painting, sculpture, or photo or discussing  the collective memory.  It is indeed an eye opener for many. 

When did you find out that you had something special that you wanted to share with the world?

“Anwar’s Dream “ was my first serious painting.  I call it my light bulb moment.  The first spiritual recognition that I should do this, that with God’s grace, I could do this.  I was about thirty-five years old.  I was going through a very stressful time in my life and found my gift.  However,  I still did not follow the spirit until later.  Several years lapsed and in 1990, I moved from Los Angeles, Ca. to Eatonville.  It was there that I begin to develop, first it was a hobby.  Everett Spruill was my first mentor.  Once I gained the confidence to let him see my work, he gave me a show in his then, Ethnic Art Gallery in Winter park.  From my first show came a publication in a local Magazine.    That was  again a un-huh moment.  I have continued to  develop my craft, exhibits and appear sporadically in publication.  My short stories are also something that I love to share.

How do you make it all happen?

Artistic expression is a very spirit filled experience.  The brush strokes are given to the artist, just as the words are given to the writer.  It is never something that just happens, but flows through the artist when he is at one with the creator. The artist is a conduit!   One should never forget to give thanks and honor  to God for his gift.

Below is my second feature blog post in honor of Women’s History Month. It is important that we celebrate the beauty and brains of women. Please enjoy learning about these fascinating women and then make sure you support them in their passions, projects, and products.

–Who are you? Please share something about yourself and your business.

1) I am Katandra Shanel Jackson. Daughter, Sister, Mother, Amiga, Girlfriend. Lover of children, animals, all things literary, antiques/old things, tattoos and 4 inch stilettos. I am the Owner/Operator at Sun-Kissed Under A Georgia Sky, Quilted blankets by Kat Foundation Starter of Angel Eyes Foundation, a 501c3 entity that is educating the masses and raising awareness about child sexual abuseChief Everything Officer (CEO), Editor-At-Large at FreedomInk Publishing… Overall Entrepreneur.

–What makes you a “Woman People Should Know”?

2) I feel that we each bring something different to the table which is life. What I bring is a never-ending oasis of creativity and ingenuity that is industry forward… not to mention my own nerdy, quirky, sassy, fearless sense of style and mannerism to match. 2013-01-29 22.06.52.jpg

–When did you find out that you had that something special that you wanted to share with the world?

3) My ‘something special’ was stumbled upon very much like that of unearthing a hidden gem! Books. I kept a diary during my pre-teen years and began writing poetry that was based on my everyday existence. Real life is sometimes stranger than fiction. At the age of 29 for the 2nd or 3rd time (I’ve officially lost count at that fountain of youth!) I began posting entries via my first blog. The Diary of A Bride To Be. A lot of folks were really relating and enjoying the entries and several were making comment about how I should turn the blog into a book. So I contacted several Literary Agents and after not getting the prompt and proper response of submitting the type of book ‘they’ wanted to read, I sought a Self-Publishing company and took the necessary steps to release my first in print book! Soon after I met FreedomInk 1st Published Author, Richard McKinney. With a major vote of trust and confidence from him, I published Redemption!! That was in 2011. It is now 2013 and at current, FreedomInk along with it’s imprint, Oppidian, houses 11 Authors, myself included and there are 17 titles under the umbrella! All but 4 have been published and released and are available wherever books are sold!!

–Where can people find out more about you?

4) My life is an open book. I’d provide my phone number if it’d speed the connection. The best place to find me is via social media. My facebook account is always up, Katandra Shanel Jackson / FreedomInk Publishing / SunKissedUnderAGeorgiaSky / Angel Eyes Foundation. Twitter @FreedomInk365 . Email me at katandra@freedomink365.com To connect with myself, the COO of FreedomInk, the Authors of FreedomInk, to learn about the exciting titles available, to learn more about FreedomInk, Angel Eyes, Sun-Kissed…www.freedomink365.com There’s not an app, but there certainly is a tab for that.

–How do you make it all happen?

5) Lots of sleepless nights. Sacrifice. By the general understanding that in order for the dream to be achieved, I must take me as an individual out of the equation. Mostly I’m able to do this because no matter who comes in and out of my life, no matter the ups and downs, no matter the setbacks and do-over’s, my children believe in me! They are my life-force, my reason for being, my reason to give everyday my all. They are why I make it happen. They believe in me and that in-turn fuels the dream.

And when I’m really still and really focused, HE GIVES SPECIFIC DIRECTIONS, TOO! I write down His plans for me… and go with the flow. As ordained, doors open and opportunities become available. As I align my will to God’s Will, He Stirs Up the Gifts already planted inside of me. It’s not rocket science and nothing miraculous about it. I ask God to fix my mind and touch my hands… AND HE SHOWS OUT EVERY TIME!
