Cheraldean Duhaney, the esteemed Councillor representing Ward 1 in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury, made history as the first Black woman and the first Black person elected to her position, marking a historic milestone in Bradford West Gwillimbury’s council for the past 12 years. Her unwavering leadership epitomizes the essence of community empowerment. Hailing from Jamaica, her childhood experiences within various school leadership groups, notably the Red Cross Society, ignited her passion for public service at an early age.

Raised in a nurturing environment filled with love, empathy, and compassion, she imbibed the values of respect and kindness, which continue to shape her approach to leadership. Throughout her journey, Cheraldean has prioritized empathy, understanding, and inclusivity, recognizing the importance of amplifying marginalized voices and advocating for justice and equality. Her commitment to lifting others and her resilience and determination showcase her as a beacon of strength and inspiration in the community.

She shares her inspiring journey with Esther Ijewere In this exclusive interview.

Forging Foundations: Shaping Leadership Through Childhood

Growing up in Jamaica, I was immersed in various school leadership groups dedicated to community service. Organizations like the Red Cross Society ignited my early interest in leadership, providing invaluable interactions with government officials that influenced my perspective on public service from a young age.

Raised in a nurturing environment filled with love, empathy, and compassion, my parents instilled in me the values of respect and kindness toward others, irrespective of background or circumstance. These foundational lessons continue to underpin my approach to leadership and community involvement.

Emphasizing empathy and understanding the needs of others has become a cornerstone of my leadership philosophy. I believe in amplifying the voices of all community members and fostering collaborative efforts to address challenges and drive positive change. My experiences in school clubs further honed my teamwork and cooperation skills, essential for effective community leadership.

In summary, my childhood experiences have equipped me with the empathy, compassion, and leadership acumen needed to navigate the responsibilities and challenges of community service. Grateful for these formative lessons, they remain instrumental in shaping my approach to public service today.

Breaking Barriers: Championing Inclusive Representation

As the first black woman, and indeed the first black person, to be elected, I am deeply committed to ensuring that all residents in Ward 1 have their needs and priorities heard and addressed. I plan to implement regular community forums and listening sessions to gather input from constituents of diverse backgrounds. Additionally, I will work closely with community leaders and organizations to advocate for policies that promote equity and inclusivity. It’s crucial that everyone feels represented and empowered in our decision-making processes.

Inspiring Women: Lessons in Leadership

My grandmother has been a pillar of strength for me, embodying unwavering faith and unconditional love, which taught me the importance of compassion and resilience in leadership. My mother’s endurance through challenges has shown me the power of perseverance and determination in achieving goals. Oprah Winfrey’s journey from adversity to success has inspired me to embrace vulnerability, authenticity, and empathy as essential qualities in effective leadership. Learning from these remarkable women has shaped my leadership approach to prioritize empathy, resilience, and authenticity in guiding and empowering others.

Empowering Community Through Diverse Programs

My experience with Impact Youth and Cultural Centre has shown me the importance of providing diverse programs and services for youth, families, and seniors. I plan to leverage this experience by advocating for increased funding and resources for such initiatives, collaborating with community leaders and stakeholders to develop innovative programs tailored to the needs of Bradford West Gwillimbury residents, and continuously seeking feedback and input from the community to ensure our efforts are effective and impactful.

Inclusive Infrastructure and Planning

As a proponent of inclusivity and accessibility, I am deeply committed to ensuring that all members of our community have equal access to essential facilities and services. In collaboration with residents, disability advocacy groups, and cultural organizations, I prioritize the design and development of infrastructure that caters to the diverse needs of our population.

By working closely with stakeholders from various backgrounds, we aim to create spaces that are not only physically accessible but also culturally sensitive and inclusive. This involves considering different perspectives and requirements from the initial planning stages, ensuring that the voices of marginalized communities are heard and incorporated into the decision-making process.

We aim to foster a sense of belonging and empowerment among all residents, regardless of their abilities or backgrounds. By embracing diversity and inclusivity in our infrastructure projects, we can create a more vibrant and resilient community for everyone.

Building Strong Council Relationships

I envision fostering collaboration among council members by prioritizing clear communication, shared goals, and mutual respect. Encouraging open dialogue, setting common objectives, and promoting inclusivity are essential strategies to build strong relationships within the council. By fostering an environment of transparency and cooperation, we can effectively address the needs of our community and work together towards common goals.

Engagement with Constituents

I plan to engage with constituents throughout the year by actively seeking feedback through various channels such as town hall meetings, community forums, and online surveys. Additionally, I will make myself accessible through regular office hours and actively listen to concerns raised via email, phone calls, and social media. By being responsive and attentive to the community’s needs, I aim to ensure that their concerns are heard and carefully considered in the decision-making process.

Advocate for Marginalized Voices – Being a Woman of Rubies

One defining moment that makes me a ‘woman of rubies’ is when I stepped up to advocate for marginalized voices in my community, using my platform to amplify their stories and fight for justice and equality. My unwavering commitment to lifting others up, regardless of the challenges I face, showcases my strength and resilience as a leader. I believe in the power of solidarity and collective action to create positive change, and I will continue to stand firm in my convictions to make a difference in the lives of those around me.

 

In collaboration with Moments with Bren, Women of Rubies recently hosted an invigorating IGS (Ignite, Goals, Success) Live session facilitated by Esther Ijewere and Brenda Okorogba. This transformative class delved into the power of visualization through the creation of vision boards, aimed at helping participants identify core values, set SMART goals, and take actionable steps towards their aspirations.

IGS Masterclass

Clarifying Core Values and Intentions

At the heart of the session was the exploration of core values and intentions. Participants were encouraged to reflect on the guiding principles that shape their decisions and actions. Whether it’s integrity, creativity, compassion, or service, clarifying these values provided a solid foundation for aligning goals with personal beliefs.

Crafting SMART Goals

With values as a compass, participants were guided in crafting SMART goals – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. This strategic approach ensured that goals were not only meaningful but also actionable and realistic. By setting clear objectives, participants were empowered to take deliberate steps toward their desired outcomes.

Creating Vision Boards

A highlight of the session was the hands-on activity of creating vision boards. Through a collage of images, words, and symbols, participants visualized their aspirations and dreams. From career milestones to personal growth, each element on the vision board served as a powerful reminder of the future they aim to manifest.

Daily Intentions and Reflection

As part of the ongoing journey towards their goals, participants were encouraged to set daily intentions and reflect on their actions. By consciously embodying their intentions and evaluating their progress each day, individuals gained valuable insights into their behaviours and habits, paving the way for continuous growth and self-awareness.

Embracing Creativity and Sharing Goals

Throughout the class, creativity flowed freely as participants expressed their visions through art and storytelling. The act of sharing vision boards and goals with the group fostered a sense of community and support, inspiring each other to reach greater heights.

Participant Reviews:

“Justina Oguntona’s Review: I absolutely loved it! The class opened my eyes to a lot of things, starting from uncovering my intentions and creating values that align with my intended goals. It provided me with the opportunity for self-reflection, which is essential for personal growth. Additionally, I appreciated learning about the spirit of discernment, enabling me to distinguish between vision builders and vision killers. Overall, it was a truly enriching experience!”

“Helen’s Reflection: The class was truly an eye-opener for me. It has inspired me to be more deliberate in achieving my goals this year. The insights gained from uncovering my intentions, aligning values with goals, and fostering self-reflection have equipped me with the clarity and determination needed to pursue my aspirations with purpose. I am grateful for this empowering experience!”

“Funmi’s Takeaway: The class emphasized the importance of giving ourselves grace and being kind to ourselves, even as we strive to achieve our goals. This lesson resonated deeply with me, reminding me of the significance of self-care and compassion on the journey towards success. By embracing this mindset, I feel empowered to pursue my aspirations with a balanced approach, nurturing both my ambitions and well-being. It’s a powerful reminder that self-love and growth go hand in hand.”

“Ejiro Osakede’s Goal Setting Reflection: One of my key goals this year is to set intentions, make impact, and influence society positively. This class has been instrumental in helping me clarify this goal and chart a path towards its realization. By learning the importance of intentionality and reflecting on the impact I aim to make, I feel empowered to take deliberate actions that align with my values and vision for societal change. I am excited to embark on this journey of purpose and contribution, knowing that each step I take brings me closer to making a meaningful difference in the world.”

The Women of Rubies IGS Vision Board Class was a powerful reminder of the importance of visualizing one’s dreams and taking intentional action towards them. By clarifying core values, setting SMART goals, and creating vision boards, participants embarked on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment.

As we move forward, let us continue to embody our values, pursue our goals with determination, and support each other on our paths to success

Have you ever wondered what highly successful women do on Monday mornings? Success is not created by luck, but by working hard toward reaching a specific goal. Monday morning routines set the mood for the rest of the day and the rest of the week. Here’s a list of Monday morning habits that highly successful people develop.

  1. They Wake Up Early – Set Your Alarm For 5am

They wake up early to make sure that they have plenty of time to complete all of their tasks. Waking up early also ensures that they are not late for any of their scheduled events and they have plenty of time to take care of their personal chores before jumping into their workload.

In an interview with Oprah, Michelle Obama shared that she wakes up early to take care of herself before her day starts. “Well, I just started thinking, if I had to get up and go to work, I’d get up and go to work. If I had to get up to take care of my kids, I’d get up and do that. But when it comes to yourself, then suddenly, ‘Oh, I can’t get up at 4:30.’ So I had to change that.”

We are only allotted so much time in each day; sleeping the day away diminishes the chances of success.

  1. They Meditate – Start With Just 5 Minutes

Monday morning meditation or prayer are great tools to envision success. It’s important to quiet the mind and let the positive energy in as soon as you wake up. If you start with meditating for 5 minutes and over time increase it to half an hour per session.

Such practices can also answer unanswered questions and lead the way to success.

Oprah meditates two times per day for 20 minutes, and she states, “I walked away feeling fuller than when I’d come in. Full of hope, a sense of contentment, and deep joy. Knowing for sure that even in the daily craziness that bombards us from every direction, there is — still — the constancy of stillness. Only from that space can you create your best work and your best life.” (HuffingtonPost)

  1. They Get Motivated – Personal Development Is Key

Highly successful people get motivated first thing on Monday morning. They read personal development books, watch inspirational videos, listen to motivational speakers. Even 15 minutes of inspirational content on Monday morning can set up your day and your week for success

  1. They Get Active – No You Don’t Need A Gym Membership

Highly Successful people know that getting the body active is imperative on Monday mornings and throughout the week. Exercise helps the body wake up and oxygenate; by doing so, all of the cells become active and ready for the day.

  1. They Only Tend To Urgent E-mails

Most email accounts are bursting with emails on Monday mornings. Highly successful people have a way to tend just to urgent emails in the morning.

Going through a long list of random emails can waste a lot of time first thing in the morning. Tumblr’s David Karp shares, “I used to suck at e-mail. I’d let e-mails pile up, get overwhelmed, and miss important messages; or forget to reply. So I set up filters on my e-mail, and that’s been working pretty well. Now, my inbox gets e-mails only from people in my company and from my girlfriend.” (Inc.com)

You can set up filters in your email account just like David Karp did. Alternatively, you can get an email app for your smart phone. Apps like Boxer, Dispatch, and Hop can help you to quickly go through your email box to separate urgent and non-urgent emails.

Law of attraction is one of the easiest ways to manifest good connections. Ever wondered why some people are just loved and admired? If you want to radiate in that kind of energy then this article is for you.

If you are looking for a long-term partner, job, or more friends, you will have to make them attracted to you. Here are the 8 simple ways to make people attracted to you without turning them off.

1. Be Confident, But Not Arrogant – Major Law of Attraction

First, it is important that you are confident about yourself. Being proud of who you are and liking your characteristics is one of the keys to make people like you. This also includes being sociable, being able to go along with the conversation and being smart when talking. Confidence is attractive, but you have to remember not to be conceited or arrogant as you might only push people away from you.

2.Sense of Humor

People who are funny are known to be intelligent and sociable. Most people are looking for this characteristic when searching for romance or friends. Even if someone is not interested in you, you can grab their attention by making them laugh.

3. Ask Deep Questions

Cut the unnecessary conversations and start asking them deeper questions. This can make them personally connected to you and you can tell them something deep as well.

4. Don’t Forget to Smile

You can easily make someone comfortable talking or having long conversations with you when you smile often. Of course, smiling is the easiest way to tell other people, “hey, don’t hesitate to talk to me, I’m friendly.”

5. Eye Contact

Making eye contact to a person makes you appear to be dominant and confident. This also makes you appear clever. You can also pair it with a strong handshake and you would totally nail it!

6.Dress Properly

When trying to make people attracted to you, it is important that you give attention to how you dress. Most people give definition to the clothes a person wears. It can be a definition associated to success or personality so if you want to make people notice you or attracted to you, make sure that you dress well.

7. Have Many People Around You

People who are in groups tend to be more attractive. This is because it shows you that you are sociable and you can easily connect to other people. Having many people around you makes you look more attractive.

Try this magical law of attraction to build your confidence,  and let us know how it goes in the comment.
