Social Media Handle/Username: @almostaj_
Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: I’m a 25 year old Aquarius from South Central Los Angeles, CA. Born & raised! I love to cook so much, it’s really a stress reliever for me, and I believe it’s truly my passion. I love my family, partner, and friends deeply.
What Inspires You Every day? : Honestly, financial freedom. I dream of the day where my family & I are on flights and adventures together. My future children inspire me as well, I don’t have them just yet but I know what type of life I want to raise them up in.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: “Every battle is not meant to be fought, and every point is not meant to be proven. Some things in life are just meant to be.” – This quote has been a huge eye-opener for me. If it does not serve you, let it go. I had to realize the hard way that you can not argue (battle) with stupid, and sometimes it’s a waste of time even proving your point about certain situations. Everything gets handled in divine timing, believe that!
What is your ultimate goal in life? : Open my own restaurant! Make my family work for me (lol). I honestly come from such talented & beautiful people, that I just want us all to be successful in our own birthright. My partner is extremely talented as well, we push each other towards success every day. I have a wonderful tribe that I surround myself with, so if I win, we all win.
What are your thoughts on people who seek attention on social media, and what message would you like to give them? : If you seek attention from social media, that’s your business! That has nothing to do with me, as long as they’re happy. Hopefully they’ll get something out of it, so many people blow up from social media, use it to your advantage!
How would you help people around the world who are going through mental health problems? : I would definitely start with supplying people with what they need. So many people are lacking basic necessities, and words of encouragement are not always the solution. People need action! They need health care facilities, food banks, shelters for anyone who needs them, and therapy. Medication is a big one too, whether it’s Westernized medicine or holistic, there needs to be at least an option. If i had the money and resources myself, I’d do it all.
How would you describe a better world for us all? : More compassion, I feel like a lot of people lack empathy. It bothers me when I see/hear someone acting like certain situations couldn’t happen to them. Everyone has had their days, yours are just better right now. We could all really mind the business that pays us too, you know.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I’m really passionate about everything, I can find one thing I’m interested in and could research it for hours. I believe in doing right to others, and most importantly myself. I believe what I put out into this world, will be returned. Also, don’t put nothing on the internet that you don’t want to resurface 10 years from now!
