California. He was the first field coordinator promoted in the region, in
record time. He left the company after several years and became the
head trainer of a similar company in the telecom marketing industry.
Spending many years with two different companies, he decided to set
out on his own. In 2003 he created Juice Marketing, Inc., he served as
President and CEO for the next five years. In that period of time under

Tomette Herring founder of the Face Book Group entitled “Transform 2 Transcend, Transforming People to Transform the World”. This is one of a few trademarks that Tomette has developed to capture and communicate a belief and methodology for becoming the best of who we are in order to transcend the “average” thereby leaving a dynamic legacy that our children’s children can be proud of.
After all, what are we here to deliver anyway?
In my discussions, I realized that many of us have critical information that would prove very beneficial to those struggling to transform. We can help each other. So, why not share that. It might help someone stay in their home, obtain a job, get critical counseling for a loved one before devastation arrests them in a state of depression.
So, here’s the question. How do you SURVIVE until you THRIVE? I don’t have all the answers, but if you ask the community, you might be surprised.
Preshona Ambrita Ghose is an activist and student of Life learning from the experiences of people around her and the lost stories of the Ancestors. An educator and activist and one of the co-founders of the One Love movement, Preshona dreams of uniting the community in compassion and consciousness of one another and the lost ancestral heritage of cultures of color. Determined to inspire the solidarity of the world around the Earth and the indigenous.
Fellow activists from DC and the west coast who she was still connected with (siblings in the struggle) began gravitating to the same concept at the same time...adding their two sense and reflection on what it should include.
This birthed the One Love movement, which started as a bimonthly community gathering or village circle with positive performances, short film and forum on monthly divisive issues, and flea market to Love homeschool co-op: I am Sun. Preshona continues to collaborate and build with, as she puts it, anyone who is trying to uplifpt the community, and continues to educate people on the indigenous methods and perspectives of cultures of color. *methods, history, and perspectives
