What's the point of existence without giving back. My passion stems from the feeling I get from helping people and my purpose stems from feeling useful. The most rewarding feeling is knowing I'm helping. Feeling useful and knowing my life makes a difference, gives purpose to my existence hence why I am addicted to volunteering and helping people, animals and insects. With each travel experience I aim to be part of volunteer projects. This time @jozu_for_women took care of the planning! Donations were made with NEET so that we can help children in need in Jamaica. Here we are painting bricks for the new donated library. If you'd like to be part of the giving and find out more information on how you can help please contact NEET : firstname.lastname@example.org
The Negril Education Environment Trust (NEET) is a non-profit organization based at Travellers Beach Resort in Negril, Jamaica. In 2003 the organization was founded to address the country’s need for educational support and resources. NEET achieves its mission through the provision of three programs, Island-wide Book & Computer Distribution, Computer Literacy, and the Medical Mission in Negril Jamaica. Thank you NEET for all that you've done and all that you aspire to do! 🇯🇲 #jamaica#jozu4women#jozuforwomen#jozunegrilvip#jozu#worldtraveler#travel#travelblogger#travelingtheworld#travelgram#volunteer#NEET#inspire#passion#purpose @sweetlegswithakilah
I never thought I'd pick up a pen pal while in Jamaica but with Shanna-Lee, it happened. A true beauty inside and out. Shanna-Lee Dryden 19 years old, born in Savanalamar and studying butler service decided after filming an interview with me, that she wants to become a journalist. Her on camera presence and love for storytelling was something truly special. We met at a volunteer organization called NEET. Not only does she enjoy helping people with her hospitality but she dedicates her free time helping children and volunteering. One of my favourite interviews was with you Shanna-Lee. So thankful to have you now a part of my life.
She says, "I'm studying butler service. I interact with new people on a day to day basis. You get to make people comfortable, feel at home, happy to make people feel like they are home. Majority of people who leave their home they feel shy or afraid, I want people to feel at home and love Jamaica. Let them see the true value of jamaica. Volunteer work is so important because I like to give back and give service and help to a good cause. If you want to donate to NEET for the children of Jamaica you can go to www.oneworldchildrensfund.org" @jozu_for_women #jozunegrilvip#jozu4women#jozuforwomen#visualjournalism#visualjournalist#portraitphotography#facesofjamaica

We have arrived in Jamaica Man!
Today is a big day for me in the world of Travel. It’s the first time that I’ve ventured out of my Canada/USA bubble. I am so grateful that my girl @jenniferselinger asked me to tag along on this new adventure and to @jozu_for_women for helping teach us and inspire me, and women, to travel easier, better and safer. Getting off the plane and making our way out of the airport into the Caribbean air was nothing short of wondrous. I can't wait to see where our first stop will be! .
One unforgettable week in Jamaica has flown by and I'm not ready to leave just yet! Looks like I'm staying an extra week all because of @jozu_for_women !! The new up and coming traveling app for women! Thanks Jozu for all that you've done because I wouldn't be here in the first place, if it wasn't for you. Can't wait to begin filming and interviewing inspiring powerful solo world traveling women at the @tmrw.tday culture festival in Negril tomorrow!! Off to the next adventure! 🇯🇲 #jozu4women#jozuforwomen#jozu#jamaica#travel#worldtraveler#travelingtheworld#visualjournalist#jamaicatourism
CURRENT DESTINATION: Jamaica ✈️🇯🇲
Peace & Love ✌️ 💛
As Jennifer and I dash through the Miami airport to catch our final flight, we can't help but stop dead in our tracks! What perfect words to describe the beginning of May's adventure and of my exact feelings. Life works in mysterious ways. A year ago, you couldn't have convinced me that I would not only push through and learn to conquer my BIGGEST fear (flying)... but put aside this anxiety altogether in order to say "yes" to the opportunities that will reinforce the pathway to fulfilling my dreams with the most inspirational people, places and opportunities on Earth.
Thank you to the most amazing friend (Jenn <3) for inspiring me to venture out into the world for the first time in my life and to Jozu For Women for brining us out here and for what is going to be the most surreal experience in my life thus far! I am so excited to showcase you to the World! 📸: @jenniferselinger
What a dream to be filming all over Miami this week at the most beautiful locations! Traveling and filming is my passion and to continue on this journey, in less than two weeks I'll be in Jamaica with @jozu_for_women at the @tmrw.tday culture festival filming and embracing wellness, yoga and music with beautiful souls like @sharonfeanny and @davidavocadowolfe 🌴 What a dream! Counting down the days until I meet the other traveling girlbosses like @jesreeen and @miavossonthego with the one and only captain of the squad @digitalgodess ✈️ #girlswhotravel#jozu#jozuforwomen#jozuphotography#livejozutraveljozu
I hope you're as excited as @jenniferselinger !
