Kujichagulia (Self-Determination)

Kujichagulia means Self Determination. The 2nd Principle of Kwanzaa. irie Corner Caterers BlogHappy 2nd day of Kwanzaa.
Today's Principle is Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.
What is your Kujichagulia? 
My Kujichagulia is: growing up my parents taught my siblings and I to live up to our African names/meanings.  My name Sherifa Wallatta means "distinguished daughter" and in my day to day walk I strive to live up to being distinguished.

It is a blessing to know & have a successful business at my finger tips. Striving entrepreneurs that are "Determined" to make a difference in people's lives, hearts and "stomachs" is Irie Corner & Distinguished Daughter Event Services. All of our lives we hear of stories and see the struggles of our ancestors who have uplifted themselves with the seven principles of Kwanzaa or 7 principles of life. It is satisfying to the soul to see the manifestation of Unity, Self-Determination, Collective Work & Responsibility, Cooperative Economics, Purpose, & Faith exhibited throughout this company! The Ancestors are Elated, and Proud! I AM Proud to see what was once struggle become SUCCESS!!!
