Juka's Health & Beauty Blog — Innovators
More from our interview with Sheen Magazine
“Juka Organics is known for it’s Red Palm Oil products. Do you mind telling us about that and exactly what you offer?
Our company is best known for our unrefined Red Palm Oil due to the sustainable practices that preserve the wildlife in Africa… It is very crucial for consumers to know where they source their Red Palm Oil. Red Palm is an indigenous fruit tree to Africa, therefore, every three to four months the fruits are safely and ethically harvested from the palm trees that have naturally been there for centuries. each generation of women ethically produce their palm fruit oil without endangering wildlife. Red palm fruit is the main source of income for these women in the villages of Africa and their families. I am grateful to be in the bridge between the markets and to offer these natural products that originate from Africa to help alleviate many existing health concerns in the United States such as high cholesterol, heart disease, obesity, and more. We are indeed honored to be apart of such an incredible social and global enterprise.”https://www.sheenmagazine.com/jukas-organic-co-founder-juka-ceesay-discusses-her-transition-to-the-united-states-from-gambia-and-what-you-should-know-about-red-palm-oil/
Happy MLK Day.
Most of us will never be able to live up to your legacy even if we live twice the age you lived. But we surly can look up to you as an inspiration for your strength, courage tenacity and above all, for being a dreamer of the unthinkable.
You are gone but your legacy continue to live on and this is a life worth living. Thank you for what you have done for the black race and for the world at large. I remember 5 years ago when I made the decision to be an activist in my own country “Gambia” to end dictatorship, I stocked through it for 4 years. Although it was hard to juggle my own life with the long and demanding hours of an Activist but i always said to myself if you fought for your people to have freedom in the U.S and if I can enjoy that luxury, I should also be able to do it for my own people in The Gambia. Thank you for inspiring us to do the unthinkable. After 22 years of dictatorship Gambia is now free from tyranny and most of the activists that fought the fight including myself looked up to you all the way until the end.
Continue to Rest In Peace Dr. King, you are truly one of a kind.

Wishing You An Awesome Monday
Remember a diamond is a chunk of coal that did well under pressure. Don’t be too complacent with your current situation, because you are afraid to try or change certain things in your life. Be bold because the courage that lies within you is waited to be tested. Just like the muscles in your body, your courage has sharp memories so you must put it into work for when you will need it. Every failure is a lesson. If you are not willing to fail, you are not ready to succeed. Believe you can and you’re halfway there. Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step. You have to know what sparks the light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
May the week ahead be filled with blessings! Enjoy your Monday
Successful people don’t become that way overnight. What most people see at a glance; happiness, wealth, a great career, purpose, is the result of hard work and hustle over time. To be successful, you have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better, and to get a little bit closer to your goals. It might sound like a lot of work and with a busy schedule, next to impossible. But the best part is; the more you accomplish, the more you’ll want to do, the higher you’ll want to reach. So, as long as you have the hunger for success, you will always have the power within you to achieve it. Your limitation is only your imagination. Push yourself because no one else is going to do it for you. Success doesn’t just find you. It’s you who have to go out and get it. Remember, the harder you work for something; the greater you’ll feel when you achieve it. Stop chasing the money and start chasing the passion. Take up one idea; make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success. Absolutely, no one can make you feel inferior without your consent. So, start where you are, use what you have and do what you can. I’m sure you’ll be successful one day.
