So honored to have the opportunity to be a speaker and partner with LA County’s DCFS-Resource Family Support & Permanency Division (RFSPD), for their appreciation event for all the wonderful foster mothers in Los Angeles County.
We served our famous RED PALM OIL GOURMET SAUCE. And I also had the pleasure to speak about the importance of healthy eating. There are few lifestyles changes that we can all make to yield a healthier & happier life.
S/O to all these wonderful women that blessed us with their presence but most importantly by being in the lives of these amazing children. As I put it today, you are truly doing Gods work. I hope all counties across Los Angeles and other parts of the country can replicate what La county DCFS did today. It was truly a wonderful experience.

It always puts a smile on my face when we have the opportunity to share love through food. The event was positive and all about...
I had the pleasure to be interviewed by LazyNigerianChef, listed & recognized by CNN as the top 5 African food bloggers you need to start following.
Snippets of the interview:
‘After tasting these oils, I knew I had to talk to Juka and not only is she a beautiful human being, but her story is one every woman has to listen to.
Nlc: Who and what is Juka?
Juka: ‘My name is Juka and I am from Gambia. I am an entrepreneur and a former activist but once an activist, always an activist’
Nlc: You said you’re an activist. What area of activism do you have a passion for?
Juka: ‘I’m an activist against injustice, I was part of a movement that brought an end to 22 years of dictatorship in the Gambia’
Nlc: Are your parents Gambians?
Juka: ‘Yes but they both lived in Sierra Leone, my father was a businessman. They later moved back to Gambia and my father had a very successful business as the sole importer of Sunoco motor oil. With no formal education, my dad started that business and did very well by opening franchise stores across the country. My mom also had a poultry and few other business and did well for herself’
Nlc: What made you start Juka’s Organic?
Juka: ‘At a young age, I moved from New York to California and I opened an African store in Inglewood. After few years of running the store, I decided to close it and liquidate everything and ended up with only two thousand dollars.’ For more on this interview visit, www.lazynigeriamchef.com”

I love sharing my African culture though food and recipes. Want to know how to make Fonio, or cook with red palm oil, or make baobab Powder recipes, visit www.jukasorganic.com on another note, always remember passion is express in different ways, but what’s important is to put it in action. Don’t let people tell you it can’t be done but most importantly don’t let yourself talk you out of it. The biggest failure is not trying. When you try there is no failure in the process, experience is gain, and that is the essence of wining.
Stay motivated, in tuned with the universe and open yourself to opportunities.
Have a lovely weekend in doing whatever sets you free and think of where you plan to be in the near future and manifest it into reality.
Thank you @kirkleins for your knowledge and wisdom in what you do! It was a pleasure to cook and share my African culture with you guys. Love how you have so much knowledge about world food 🥘.
