ABOUT DAVINIA JAMES
Davinia James is originally from Jamaica and the first one in her family to graduate high school and college. A stranger opened up her heart to Davinia's biological mother and Davinia is the product of that. Her adoptive mother and father (Her 'earthly parents') aided in Davinia gaining an education. Their kindness is the foundation that drives Davinia in giving girls everywhere what she received.....the opportunity to gain a quality education.
“Everything that is done should be done with passion or not at all. My focus for changing the world in my own way, derived from my life story and how an education opportunity changed my life forever being from a third world country. The passion for making the world better than the one I was born is my core foundation for all that I do. In any way to make life better for people regardless of their geographical location is what I was put on this earth to do. That’s my purpose and with that comes my plan for life. My passion collided with opportunities and purpose. Hence, creating change on a global scale has captivated this soul of mine.”
