Napoleon Hill once said; “There is no hope of success for the person who does not have a central purpose or definite goal at which to aim.” … Now, I certainly couldn’t agree more. I have long held the view that you’ve got to be deliberate and intentional about your growth as you work tenaciously for whatever it is in life you want. I believe every goal is achievable provided you work smart and stay consistent in your ways. As an enterprising, principled and ambitious young woman, I aspire to be a woman of complete integrity, and so I stand for what I believe in and do not compromise. I aim for a win and with positivity and some strategic planning, success is surely attainable. In light of the fast advancing and competitive global village we find ourselves in, I have long been guided by a basic principle; “Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful.”
Tell us about your journey. Growing up in a highly populated and cosmopolitan urban zone, thus, Accra, the national capital of Ghana, life was fairly challenging. But, through it, I picked up a positive trait: to be a go-getter. As the first of my parent’s children, I realized I couldn’t have escaped the overwhelming responsibility bequeathed to me as a birthright (…at least that’s how I felt LOL) and so dynamism and diversity was key. Albeit with an engineering background and a student of science, I’ve found myself working and collaborating in interesting corporate spaces; human resource, digital media, business administration, multimedia and now I’m the marketing head for an Italian furniture and décor company; Jamila Home. In spite of these, it is my desire to someday be a diplomat. I started off as a photo model back in tertiary in 2016, did a bit of campus TV presentation, brand influencing and digital media management. I’ve featured in a few influencing and Ad campaigns for Frytol Ghana, Always Sanitary, Pinkberry, Vitamilk, Otumfuo@20 and a few other brands. After acquiring some good experience from the events industry, I took to the ushering and events management space in 2018, and am currently leading JanniceDigital Agency and Jannice Humanitarian Initiatives (JHI). This humanitarian initiative has much interest in social development and seeks to be an advocate for SDGs. We do have some upcoming projects that will be made public when the time is due. What were the biggest initial hurdles and how did you overcome them? One problem I have always battled with is association and loyalty, the right team to think and work with. I realized that you don’t always get the right team to plan with no matter how great your vision is, because they might not share in the same vision as you.
What books are you currently reading? ALL THINGS ARE WORKING FOR MY GOOD by Joel Osteen FAKE by Richard Kiyosaki What do you know today that you wish you would have known when you first got started? Things change, people change, and as you grow up, sometimes you also grow apart. People often might simply add complexity and negativity to your life. You’ll meet some “heavenly” nice people late in life and you’ll retort where they have been all this while. Some will only show unending smiles when you’ve got a lot to share and show no sign of their presence when you have nothing left. What advice would you give to an upcoming youth or talents locally and internationally? OPPORTUNITY always presents itself in two ways; it's either GIVEN or SEIZED. Identify your strength, stay committed to the course and when the” Time” is set, SEIZE it with all you’ve got. And NEVER make excuses and procrastinate.
