Featured Chosen Covergirl – Taj McGill
Can you identify the time in your life when you began to totally accept yourself and all of your flaws?
I cannot recall a particular time because I think total acceptance of yourself is a journey.
What does it mean to be confident?
Being confident means that you are aware of your greatness, flaws, strengths, weaknesses, etc., and you boldly embrace them unapologetically. To be confident you must know who you are, stand in your truth, and trust that you are more than enough.
What comes to mind when you think of the word “joy”?
Peace that surpasses all understanding. Joy is unconditional. Unlike happiness, it remains amidst hardships and challenges.
What do you admire most about yourself?
I am resilient and my faith is unmatched. My daughters would say that I’m a phenomenal mother. I just think I’m pretty dope on a few levels.
Fill in the blank: I am….UNSTOPPABLE!
How has your faith contributed to who you are today?
My faith has everything to do with the woman that I am today. Without faith, the challenges, loss of my parents, teen pregnancy, and every misfortune would have conquered my mind. Faith got me through a lot of valley moments.
What would you tell your younger self or someone who has yet to discover her worth?
Whew! I can write a book of lessons to my younger self. I would definitely tell a younger Taj to love herself more. Loving yourself is major and essential.
