With so many inspirations in her life, it’s hard for Taifa to pick just one person that has molded her into the person that she is today. One person in particular, an uncle, helped her to see what her future could be as just a small child:
“I knew I wanted a piece of the event industry from a child. My uncle has a balloon shop on Point Breeze & Dickinson that I used to work in as a kid. My uncle is my motivation.”
Taifa is a successful event planner based in The City of Brotherly Love, but there’s more to her story. As a graduate of Parkway Center City, she wants people to know that she’s a fighter that won’t give up and way more than a pretty face! Her goal is to run “an extremely wealthy event planning company”. Thankfully, those same people that inspire Taifa, also support her to achieve her goal:
“My uncle Bryan has helped me out a lot. My god sister Nett has always given me plenty of pointers. My cousin Kimyannah helped me grow as well, she started around the same time but we have learned a lot from each other’s mistakes.”
It’s so important to have a strong support system to help lift you up when you’re down. Sometimes as moms we think that we have it all together, until we don’t. You shouldn’t be afraid to reach out for help, a listening ear, or a shoulder to cry on. We all need each other.
Even when she’s not working she still has to be a mother! Taifa’s daughter is also there every step of the way, watching and learning. Yes, her work clock is on 24/7 from her event planning business to playing doctor and having tea parties. The grind doesn’t stop!
