20 May Featured Chosen Covergirl – Danika Smith-Josiah
Confidence to me is the assurance of who you are, and more importantly whose you are!
What comes to mind when you think of the word “joy”?
My children- they epitomize that for me. Their innocence, them being unbothered by the chaos of this world, them appreciating just getting a skittle as a treat for following instructions as school etc J
Can you identify the time in your life when you began to totally accept yourself and all of your flaws?
From an early age I was fortunate to attend top rated schools as it related to academics, which were also primarily attended by those from the upper echelon of society; while I grew up in the garrison. My parents couldn’t afford the luxuries that I saw my friends with, nor was I from a mixed race with the seemingly “to die for” hair and skin tone. I didn’t have a choice but to be ok with the cards I was dealt, and wear those one too large a size pair of shoes, and rock my unprocessed hair. My parents showed unwavering love and support which made me develop the confidence to look beyond the superficial things.
What do you admire most about yourself?
That I am able to see the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.
Fill in the blank: I am… Resilient
How has your faith contributed to who you are today?
I don’t stress the small stuff and I live more in the moment as I am confident in God’s word …ALL things work together for my good.
What would you tell your younger self or someone who has yet to discover her worth?
Perseverance MUST finish its course so that you may be MATURE and COMPLETE, lacking nothing! James 1:4
