If you don't know ...NOW YOU KNOW

We don't really know our following outside of our subscribed followers and friends but we do know they are out there so it came to me last night to give you all a little history lesson and tell you about ourselves and our purpose (I will try and make it a long story short)

How we met: Jah and I met in 2003 in a college prep program called Upward Bound at The George Washington University. She was too cool for school at first ...lol at least that's what I thought and from then on I became the pesky little sister to her and all her siblings but none the less they love lil ol me. We have the same mentor who inspired us to not only help ourselves but the community around us as well as the world ....literally. We all started our non-profit together BTC (Breaking the Cycle) which aids inner city youth with the tedious college process and other life woes that comes along with living in an urban environment.

College Years: We both traveled to Houston, Texas together in the fall of 2006 to attend school (different colleges) and it was through the diverse experiences of college molded with some homegrown memories that got us going. We both always had a passion for helping people especially the lil ones (we live for inner city youth). Jah always had a passion for fashion and I myself a peaceaholic political activist we always thought if we combined those two with helping youth we would be unstoppable.

The Name: JahLoveSaudi is what we call ourselves together as a whole. It just kind of manifested into its own there was no real planning or trying to figure out a name its simply Jahnin's nickname and my nickname put together JAHLOVE +SAUDI= JahloveSaudi...Some may call it corny or egotistical but we tell them motherfuckers get bent or pause for the cause.

What we have done: We love going to art festivals, supporting non-profits, supporting up and coming artist. We speak things into existence opening our thoughts dreams and aspirations into the universe thus we met some of our favorite artist i.e. Pharrell, K'naan, Q-Tip. We both have travelled the world respectively to start putting our core values of our friendship into action simply service before self. We both have traveled to Ghana to volunteer and do a country study. When one can't the other can so there is never an excuse for us not to lend a helping hand.

What we set out to do: We hope to get as many youth disadvantaged or not excited about life and being an individual through:
-practices of peace, meditation and self reflection.
-fashion.
-all art forms.
-furthering their education.
-music.
-embracing self expression and loving thy self.
Also a big part of what we do for self esteem and confidence boosters with each other is letting each other know that we are (it.) a phrase we use to describe ourselves often when we feel good about something we have done. it. Stands for Integral and Talented because that's what we are. We are an integral part of our community and the world as well as talented no matter if its a visual skill or a sentiment that you are able to help people embrace such as happiness. We want today's youth to know that they are (it.)


Whats next for us: We just want to keep supporting the arts and inspiring youth to rise above and beyond the standards giving to them. Maybe Morocco and/or Taiwan in 2011. You will just have to stay tuned to find out....

Rules of Engagement

So Rule number 1# "Om Namah Shivaya" ( I bow to the inner self) No one can look out for you like you. a CLEAR MIND SPIRIT AND BODY = A PEACEFUL MIND SPIRIT AND BODY.
2. You were put on this planet to help it but don't get so caught up in trying to be a single element of change and evolving the world and you forget to evolve as an individual. You were put on this earth to grow and evolve as a person not to make evolution in the world that will come on its own. You have to be a little selfish if you wan to be selfless.
3. Everything is not as it seems be weary but mindful observant and keen on details.
4. People like to put you in a trick bag don't let it happen don't let their story become yours listen and go on about your present to outlay your future.
5. The past is a bitch we all know this but leave that shit there and try not to go back and bring it back it was what it was accept it leave it at that!!!...Alyssa and Ebone told me that long ago but I did not listen until now..
6. A setback is a setup for a comeback so if the vision of your goal lacked details and was a disappointment be aware something greater is supposed to happen and your vision is not concrete don't let obstacles consume you focus on your present to make a better future.
