Beauty of Ambition

Black Culture, Poetry, Jazz & Natural Hair with an emphasis on intellectual presence: There is a god given strength in our people. we just have to represent ourselves in a way that reflects that, beginning by developing an understanding of the small bit of our history that we can access. Enjoy! -Camisha

“The kind of beauty I want most is the hard-to-get kind that comes from within — strength, courage, dignity.” - Ruby Dee (October 27, 1922-June 11, 2014)

“ ‘…how can we know the way?’ Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’ ” (John 14:5–6, NIV) Do you need direction in your life today? Jesus said, “I am the way.” Not only is He the Way to life in eternity, but Jesus is a Waymaker here on earth. He is the way to everything you need in this life. Do you need to know the way out of debt? Do you need to know the way to having better relationships…the way to overcome an addiction…to live in peace and joy? When you know Jesus, you know the Way!
No matter what you are facing today, no matter what challenges or obstacles are in your life, trust that He will make a way for you. Even when you don’t see how, trust that He is working. Trust that He loves you so much that He wants to strengthen and empower you to live in total victory. Open your heart today and receive all that God has given you through a personal relationship with Jesus. His is the way, and He has made a way for you to live in victory in every area of your life!

Back home in Paterson. Good night. Thanks for all the love and support from my family and friends. You are amazing.

Thanks to all who donated and help fund my trip to Ferguson(flown there twice).

I was able to connect with passionate local and out of town activist, self born out of the situation in Ferguson. I worked only with young adults. There passion for justice is unmatched. This is only the beginning! I hope to go back as much as possible to help in any capacity as they build and self manage a grassroots organization that will change Ferguson, STL and the country.
