Hi Tyonia, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
Perseverance. Staying persistent and going forward even when you are tired of it.Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I currently work in the social service field. I work a lot with small communities on providing various services to families. I chose this career path with intent to change the world one day at a time with simply lending a helping hand. I’ve seen so many people Being overlooked and mistreated and I wanted to make a difference. it’s definitely not easy doing this type of work but it’s rewarding. When I’m challenged I just remember what my purpose is and I keep going. Some of the lessons Learned would be , listen more even when you have a lot to say but when you have a voice , use it !! Use your voice and work in good faith. I want the world to know that no matter how strong, rich, poor, , everybody needs somebody !If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If I am hosting my friends I would take them to various places downtown Atlanta . Would recommend bars and lounges downtown Atlanta Breakfast Club for a good breakfast Eclipse de Luna Sweet Georgia Juke Joint Escobar Insomnia cookies -best cookies in the world Top Golf Plenty of places to go !The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Honestly I Owe all the credit to God himself. My story is very complex , lots of trials , lots of losses but also a lot of wins ! My God has pulled me through any and everything and I wouldn’t be who I am today without him.
