Understanding your privilege in life is important for recognizing how you can give back to others. Many of us, though we are dealt a better hand, do not comprehend fully all that we have truly been given and can accomplish because of the hand we have been dealt.
Judith Onuwa, on the other hand, realized the power of her position in life. Filled with immense passion, Judith realized that her skills and talents, that she gained through her position in life, could help many people, so she did just that! She is now the creator of Juongerald Foundation.
“My humanitarian passion led me into transitioning from the corporate field into the healthcare profession and also establishing a charity organization called JUONGERALD FOUNDATION. I’m very fortunate to be in America, I own a business and work as a healthcare professional- So I said to myself, why don’t I reach out to people that need this help the most and put smiles on their faces, giving these reasons and hope to be alive,” Judith explains.
Though Judith is able to give back to many people now, her story did not begin this way. As a young girl, she remembers how hard her parents had to work in order to pay for them to go to school and to get the things they needed to survive. Thankfully for Judith, this was just a rocky time for her family and they quickly rebounded, but those moments stuck with her. When she herself had the opportunity to give back, she decided to make it her life goal.
“I’ve read stories of how great men and women who came from an impoverished background became successful. My parents are my inspiration as well. They inspire me daily,” Judith details.
In addition to being a successful operator of a charity, Judith works in the fashion business; an inspiration she also attributes to her family. What helps Judith balance all of these incredibly difficult and busy tasks is by having a positive mindset and attitude to get through it all.
“Positive Mindset is extremely important to attain when starting any type or form of business, organizations, or firm. You must adopt a positive mindset when interacting with clients. It’s mandatory to visualize positivity in any contract you want to be close with your client or even communicate with your staff-members. Positive Mindset will make you a great leader and I believe in the power of thinking positive thoughts,” Judith recommends.
Despite all of the work that she already does already, Judith still has more plans for the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023. She details them below:
“As this year comes to a conclusion, I and my team still have a lot of outreaches to do under Juongerald Foundation Platform. We’ve lots of short- and long-term projects also for Juongerald Services LLC which we’re looking at opening a new branch and hiring more staff members to join our team. These are a few of our projects. We’ve small and large projects i and my team are looking into. We’ve started some and others are still pending.”
