Miss Africa Texas 2014/2015
God has a perfect way of turning trails into inspirational testimony.
Psalms 119:71 “It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees.”
I would first like to give honor to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for caring the burden of my future and past sins, so, that I may have a chance to be with my Lord God in eternal Life. Everything I have accomplished through life has been because God has never left nor forsaken me. I give the most love and respect to my three blessings Seth, Saniya, and Skylee my motivation to “never let the world build on top of me but, to build on top of the world.”
I was born to Carla Davis and Harold Jordan September 18, 1989 in Saint. Louis, Missouri. As a child I was often spoiled by both of my grandmother’s Sheila Thomas a descendent of Kingston Jamaica and Beverley Kitchen. Later, I became the eldest of eight siblings named Samyra, Samoria, Jeremi, Mariah, Carlee, Caiya, and Coree. My first distinct childhood memory would be the first time I experience the presence of God! Ten years of age at a church convention with my Aunt Shirley, she asked me to perform. I had never performed nor made a routine for a praise dance by myself. With God on my side I knew it was possible! At the end of my routine I stood in a room full a Christians standing on their feet applauding, at that moment I knew that my ministry was dance and God had blessed me with the anointing. Growing up in school I was not the most popular I was teased for being too tall, light, and skinny. I begin to have low self-esteem; I would always hide myself in jackets or thick coats. The only time I felt like I could conquer the world was through dance. In middle school my aunt enrolled me into Charlie dance school that taught jazz, ballet, and praise dancing, this allowed me to express myself; I begin to break the shell of low self-esteem. Fourteen- years of age I moved to Texas, I joined the track team, and became a Lady Wildcat for the 300 hurdles. I graduated from Duncanville High School; I received a track and academic scholarship to Langston University. My years at Langston University I became 2008 Freshman Class President, a member of The National Council of Negro Women, a proud member of The Society of Distinguished Black Women, and I also reigned as 2013-2014 former Queen Miss. Omega Psi Phi. During my reign as Miss. Omega I begin to grow a passion for humanity as I implemented my platform “Dancing for a Better You”. The Men of the Phi Psi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi enhanced my knowledge on the importance of service as I implemented my platform and serviced my community.
Today I stand boldly to say that I am a God fearing Christian women that does not take a step without seeking God first. I am a member of Triumph the Church & Kingdom of God in Christ; with my church I am able to teach the youth with dance. Teaching Praise dance my goal is mold young girls characters into building a connection through Christ and a cleansed outlet vessel through life. My mission in life is to make sure that I can spread the word of how awesome God is if you just have faith and obedience.
“What shall we then say to these thing? If God be for us, Who can be against us?”
