New Jersey prep football standout Kavon Chambers clinging to high hopes of acquiring a scholarship

HOLDIN’ IT DOWN

LEADER OF THE PACK — To his credit, Kavon Chambers has held his own as one of Saint John Vianney’s marquee players. A 5-foot-11, 205-pound speedy running back, Chambers has turned in valiant contributions for a Lancers, a Holmdel, New Jersey-based private institution that opens postseason play November 15 at Donovan Catholic, according to Maxpreps.com.

Kavon Chambers entered the 2019 campaign for Saint John Vianney High, assuming the businesslike approach.

That’s because Chambers is a senior, meaning as far as he’s concerned, he had to strategically devise ways to — you know — get the most out of his final year as a prep football player.
“(I’m) giving each and every play my all and trying to get to 1-0 every week with my team,” Chambers told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

COLLEGE PARTY — While Chambers’ quest to sign a National Letter of Intent in the coming months remains a mystery, the possibility exists that his dream of playing college football could become a reality. According to Chambers, he’s garnered letters of interest from Purdue, East Carolina, the University of Buffalo, the University of Richmond, Central Connecticut, Princeton, and Rutgers.

In a year he’s dubs a crucial one, considering he’s lobbying to play at the collegiate level, Chambers has gone to great lengths to turn the heads of scouts and recruiters.

Through eight games to date, he’s amassed 653 yards on 84 carries, according to stats obtained through Maxpreps.com.

His biggest game occurred in 33-0 win over visiting Freehold Boro on October 11 during which he manufactured 209 rushing yards on 12 carries and three scores for a Saint John Vianney squad that won two of its last four outings en route to advancing to the playoffs.

Through eight regular season games, Chambers averaged 93.3 yards per outing and 7.8 yards per carry.

In a year he’s dubs a crucial one, considering he’s lobbying to play at the collegiate level, Chambers has gone to great lengths to turn the heads of scouts and recruiters.

Interestingly, while he admittedly could have done more to boost his recruiting stock during the course of his prep tenure, Chambers doesn’t shy away from the notion that he undoubtedly has what it takes to play at the next level.

“I just need a chance to make it happen,” said Chambers, when asked what he’d like for college scouts to know about him. “Whatever college offers me a scholarship will be getting a motivated and determined student athlete that works each and every day to be great.”

Chambers’ father, Marcus Chamber, his mother, Jessica M. Zamot, are amongst those who have witnessed their son’s progress on the field in recent years.

Like so many others who say Kavon possesses the mechanics to play collegiate ball,  his parents are hopeful their son earns a fair chance.


“(Coaches and scouts) say that he’s a good, all-around person and athlete on and off the field and that he is a Division 1 player with a bright future ahead of him,” said Marcus Chambers, assessing his son’s overall body of work. “I was astounded, but knew since the day one he was born he had greatness in him. The sky is the limit for my son, because he can do all things thru Christ that strengthens him.”


While Kavon Chambers’ quest to sign a National Letter of Intent in the coming months remains a mystery, the possibility exists that his dream of playing college football could very well become a reality.

According to Kavon, he’s garnered letters of interest from Purdue, East Carolina, the University of Buffalo, the University of Richmond, Central Connecticut, Princeton, and Rutgers.

Not bad for a solid student athlete whom, as he prepares for postseason play in mid-November, realizes he’s still afforded the golden opportunity to make a favorable impression, particularly with regards to fulfilling his ultimate goal.


PRAYING WITHOUT CEASING

“(I’m) giving each and every play my all and trying to get to 1-0 every week with my team,” Chambers told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

As Kavon emphasized, though, he’s taking it one game at a time — postseason included.

“(I’m) giving (it my) all each and every day and not letting any days go by without working hard,” Kavon said. “I’ve got three younger brothers who look up to me, and everything I do is for them and my family.”

All of which practically sums up why this gifted student athlete is committed to assuming the businesslike approach.

Every single chance he gets.

New York author Gloria V. Key defies insurmountable odds, prospers mightily as mentioned in her book


I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 NIV)


KEYS TO VICTORY 

MOTOWN MIRACLE — Gloria V. Key, a Spring Valley, New York-area author, deemed it essential to share of her life-altering testimonies in a rather spirited, remarkably compelling book that figures to impact generations for years to come. A native of Detroit, Key is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “A Key That Turned: Unlocking the Master Plan,” a project that was officially released in July 2019.

Gloria V. Key steadfastly planted the seed, meaning she diligently exercised her faith.

Much to her delight, God provided the increase, meaning He strategically catapulted her to her destiny.
“I choose to write the book initially to inspire and motivate others to further their education, and to let others know that it’s never too late to go back to school or accomplish your dreams,” Key told Making Headline News during a weekend interview . “As time went on, I realized my message was much bigger than that.”
Indeed it was.
So much so that Key, a Spring Valley, New York-area author, deemed it essential to share of her life-altering testimonies in a rather spirited, remarkably compelling book that figures to impact generations for years to come.

A book that is comprised of 113 pages in length, Key’s “A Key That Turned: Unlocking the Master Plan” is widely regarded as a must read, in large part because it recalls this author’s feel good story, of sorts.

A native of Detroit, Key is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “A Key That Turned: Unlocking the Master Plan,” a project that was officially released in July 2019.

A book that is comprised of 113 pages in length, Key’s “A Key That Turned: Unlocking the Master Plan” is widely regarded as a must read, in large part because it recalls this author’s feel good story, of sorts.

For instance, Key did not know who she was or where she came from during which she endured a rather tumultuous season in her life, one that was hampered and saddled by a rash of family struggles, heartbreak, and economic setbacks, many of which stemmed all the way from her youth to adulthood, according to a detailed synopsis of her book at Amazon.com.

SEEDS OF GREATNESS — Key planted the seed, meaning she diligently exercised her faith. Much to her delight, God provided the increase, meaning He strategically catapulted her to her destiny.

“Her faith in God and family lifted her from the abyss to new heights,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Key’s book. As an adult, she earned multiple college degrees and certifications despite being the sole caretaker of her children and multiple nieces and nephews.

“She is the embodiment of determination and perseverance. From homelessness to hopefulness, poverty to prosperity, Gloria Key’s emotional roller coaster ride proves that you can achieve anything you desire and help others do the same.”

Key did not know who she was or where she came from during which she endured a rather tumultuous season in her life, one that was hampered and saddled by a rash of family struggles, heartbreak, and economic setbacks, many of which stemmed all the way from her youth to adulthood, according to a detailed synopsis of her book at Amazon.com.

To her credit, there did, by all accounts, emerge a much-anticipated breakthrough amid Key’s sometimes stormy and rocky journey, one that was ceremoniously capped by her acquiring a degree from the prestigious Fordham University, a historic, private New York City-based institution that was founded in 1841.

A book that is co-authored by Marc Hoberman, Key emphasized, among other things, that her book serves as a notable reminder that there is true meaning to one’s life, regardless of how discomforting life becomes.


“My divine message is to let others know that despite what you have gone through, God hasn’t forgotten you,” Key said. “(This book is a reminder) to have faith and trust God with all things.”


Since the release of “A Key That Turned: Unlocking The Master Plan,” the feedback has been overwhelmingly favorable, Key said.

“I have received overwhelmingly positive responses from my book,” said Key, who began composing her book sometime last year. “People have literally called me in tears, stating that they can relate to the challenges I’ve gone through in my life.”


DESTINY STEPS 

Some, in fact, were practically astounded by this writer’s wealth of transparency in her written work.

“People around me were shocked at the grim details of my life stating, ‘Oh my God…through all that, you’ve always been a positive person with a smile and words of encouragement for others,’” Key recalled. “I am so pleased that I’ve actually motivated others to go back to school including my own son. Others have gotten the courage to seek that promotion at work or learned coping strategies.”

Since the release of “A Key That Turned: Unlocking The Master Plan,” the feedback has been overwhelmingly favorable, Key said.

Because of the ongoing positive feedback and requests for her newly-assembled book, Key has become inspired to write a sequel.

Just recently, she appeared on a podcast entitled, “The Susan Brender Show” and has spoken publicly about her book at her church and other community-related events.

Because of the ongoing positive feedback and requests for her newly-assembled book, Key has become inspired to write a sequel.

“I believe that God has brought me full circle,” Key said. “I’ve had such an incredibly challenging life afflicted with so many obstacles, and just around age 50 when I thought I was done or just comfortable, God unleashed His Master Plan.”

Most importantly, He provided the increase, meaning He strategically catapulted her to her destiny.

New York entrepreneur Jesikah Lei starts business from a shelter, completes dramatic comeback with second venture


STRENGTH UNDER PRESSURE 

DEFYING ALL ODDS — A native of the Bronx, New York, Jesikah Lei is the proud owner of dual businesses as the CEO of Allure-Hair & Lashes and jNewYorkBoutique.

So what exactly did Jesikah Lei do to deserve the various forms of hardships that disrupted her life and resulted in a devastating blow to her faith?

Nothing at all, to be honest.

“I’ve been homeless, raped, beaten, abused…a lot,” Lei, a New York businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week, recalling the tumultuous, emotionally-driven experiences through which she had endured long before she was blessed to become an entrepreneur.

Despite all through which she had gone, one pivotal thing remained the same.

That is, Lei never shied away from her faith in her Creator.

“God was and is my Savior,” Lei says without hesitation.

For Lei, a 42-year-old single mother of two, that certainly proved to be the case in the life of a young businesswoman, who knows full well what it’s like to diligently press and navigate her way through arguably the toughest of obstacles.


WHEN ORDERING JESIKAH’S PRODUCTS: paypal.me/jnewyorkboutique

FOUGHT HER WAY THROUGH — For Lei, one favorable development had ultimately led to another, and before she knew it, jNewYorkBoutique was up and running, in full operation — all while God continued to work behind the scenes, thus preparing her a table in the presence of her enemies in the process.

Heck, even when she was forced to land a job at the tender age of was 14, God was right there.

Even when her young body was violated time and again through physical and sexual abuse, God was right there.

Even when she vacated grade school prematurely, God was right there.

Even when she had given birth to her first child as a teenage mother, God was right there.

And, amongst the things this devoted single mother-turned-businesswoman has discovered is that God is still very much right here today unlike never before.

A native of the Bronx, New York, Lei is the proud owner of dual businesses as the CEO of Allure-Hair & Lashes and jNewYorkBoutique.

Talk about making a dramatic comeback for the ages.


“I actually started my business while living in a shelter five years ago. All I had was an idea, a prayer, and a plan.” — Jesikah Lei


As it turned out, that was just about all she needed to jumpstart a business that is benefited her mightily — this after all the hell and chaos and unnecessary foolishness she had to endure.


WHEN ORDERING JESIKAH’S PRODUCTS: paypal.me/jnewyorkboutique

“Once I received a call for my Section-8 apartment,” I knew at that moment God had answered my prayer,” said Lei, giving God His rightful credit. “Now, the plan? No so much, yet (Lei is laughing now) “So, I started doing my research on how to start my very own online boutique.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

And, for Lei, one favorable development had ultimately led to another.

And before she knew it, jNewYorkBoutique was up and running and in full operations — all while God continued to work behind the scenes, thus preparing her a table in the presence of her enemies in the process.

ROUND TWO — As her Lei’s Allure venture, it is a business she established some two months ago and is still “growing in product,” Lei said.

As her Lei’s Allure venture, it is a business Lei established some two months ago and is still “growing in product,” she said.

“I joined many Facebook groups for support and learned purposes as well,” said Lei, explaining the essential steps needed to establish her business. “A new journey for a new me.”

For Lei, it was just the much-anticipated fresh start she needed, considering even during her season in the wilderness, her support system seemed practically nonexistent, she explained.

Still, when the dust had settled, God was right there — had been there, really, from the outset.

“I had to think of a plan to get myself and my son out of poverty, and I knew that fashion had always been a passion of mine, so, I decided on opening my very first online clothing boutique,” Lei said.

Much to her delight, her business went into full operations in July 2018.

Much to her delight, it had been flourishing ever since.

For the record, Lei would be the first to admit that she didn’t need anyone to feel sorry for her. Credit her idea, prayer, and a plan as the reasons why.

“I said, ‘Enough is enough,’” said Lei, explaining her motivation for choosing to turn to entrepreneurship. “I knew that God would hold me down.”

Indeed He has. He’s been holding her down ever since.

Talk about making a dramatic comeback for the ages.

“My son’s kids and granddaughter are the reason for it all,” Lei says of her sustained success as an entrepreneur. “I knew that I had to succeed and accomplish my goals.”

Today, Lei has deemed it essential to empower other girls and young ladies to never place their dreams by the wayside.

BUT GOD — “I’ve been homeless, raped, beaten, abused…a lot,” Lei, a young New York businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week, recalling the tumultuous, emotionally-driven experiences through which she had endured long before she was blessed to become an entrepreneur.

“It’s important for all females — young and old — that no matter the struggle, hurt, or pain, you can do all things through faith and (you’ve) just got to believe in yourself,” Lei said. “Someone out there is listening and will bring light into your dark days.”

Just as God had done for her.

Buffalo, New York’s Charles McCarley raising the bar, creating an exquisite legacy as the Senior Pastor of Tabernacle Of Praise Church

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (Matthew 16:18)

There’s no other way to put it.

Charles W. McCarley was only being forthright.

Or as the young people would say, he was only “keeping it 100.”

HANDPICKED BY GOD — It is, by all accounts, because of Elder Charles McCarley’s fervent desire to demonstrate love the way God specifically commands us that the historic Tabernacle Of Praise Church has become the beacon of light for which it is widely known in Buffalo, New York as well as throughout the Body of Christ.

“I became unsatisfied with ministry as usual,” McCarley, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, when asked when did sense that God was strategically preparing him for ministry. “I believed there had to be more to this then just church Sunday after Sunday.”

That, as a result, practically sums up why McCarley, 44, felt it was time to ask God for a broader sense of direction, to order his steps the more if you will…you know, to position and develop him so that he could, in turn, exemplify a proverbial monumental impact, particularly as it pertains to advancing the kingdom.

“I began to search for God and, within that search, it taught me how to love people and that sparked my heart toward the community,” McCarley explained. “Our church has to be community centered so that they can see the love of Christ through the people of God.”

It is, by all accounts, because of McCarley’s fervent desire to demonstrate love the way God specifically commands us that the historic Tabernacle Of Praise Church has become the beacon of light for which it is widely known.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — What’s even more intriguing, let alone an even greater blessing is that McCarley’s beloved companion, fellow Buffalo native Rachel M. McCarley, is right there alongside him, collectively helping him shepherd God’s people for such a time as now.

Located at 319 Northland Avenue in Buffalo, New York, Tabernacle of Praise appropriately accompanies what its beloved man servant labels a rather exclusive tag that reads: “Where wounded lives and broken hearts find new life in Christ Jesus.”

Amongst the grandest reasons for such a radiant spiritual catchphrase is that people — believers especially — are hurting and broken which, according to McCarley, means the church is the institution that has The Answer.

“Jesus!” this young, vibrant pastor says with such authority, knowing full well that only what he does for Christ will last.

That, of course, means also that because of who is and because of the divine calling on his life, McCarley doesn’t shy away from the notion that he’s been set aside for God’s use, to have a massive kingdom impact — even if it means doing so outside of the traditional walls of the church.

LEAST THEY FORGET — A church that was founded by the late Deborah Scott, whom McCarley describes as his godmother and “a dynamic woman of God who was called by the Lord and heard His voice,” it wasn’t until Scott had become stricken by cancer that McCarley began to witness God strategically thrust him to the forefront, during which he commenced to have more of a significant role in ministry.

How else to explain why even to this very day, Tabernacle of Praise is known mostly as a church whose mission is to serve its community and, most importantly, to ensure that it presents what McCarley describes as “continuous opportunities” for every man, woman, boy, and girl, or that message of hope, which is Jesus Christ.

A church that was founded by the late Deborah Scott, whom McCarley describes as his godmother and “a dynamic woman of God who was called by the Lord and heard His voice,” it wasn’t until after Scott had become stricken by cancer that McCarley began to witness God strategically thrust him to the forefront, during which the former Youth Pastor commenced to have more of a significant leadership role in ministry.

Tabernacle of Praise is known mostly as a church whose mission is to serve its community and, most importantly, to ensure that it presents what McCarley describes as “continuous opportunities” for every man, woman, boy, and girl, the message of hope, which is Jesus Christ.

“She founded Tabernacle Of Praise Church along with her husband Morris Scott,” McCarley said. “She worked this ministry until she became terminally ill with cancer. I didn’t know that she was ill. She didn’t tell me anything, but yet was setting me up for something special.”

The rest, as they say, was history.

That’s because the final months of Scott’s life had essentially proven to be a God-orchestrated defining moment, of sorts, for McCarley, considering he began to preach during the church’s early morning service.

Little did he know, however, God was yet working behind the scenes on his behalf while simultaneously preparing Tabernacle Of Praise for its founder’s ceremonious departure.

YES LORD!!!! “I am still working this vineyard and, oh the joys that I have experienced,” McCarley said. “But there is always that though that, ‘I wish that she was here to see what God has done in such a short time.’ I continue to honor my godmother and the legacy she left. To God be the glory.”

Scott, in fact, eventually lost her battle with cancer approximately seven months after McCarley began preaching during the church’s initial Sunday service.

“She and God had a plan I knew nothing about,” McCarley said. “The church was now familiar with me and told the Bishop that it was their desire to keep me as the new pastor when the time had come.”

Fortunately for McCarley, he’s been Tabernacle Of Praise’s most featured member for a little more than five years.

And counting.

“I am still working this vineyard and, oh the joys that I have experienced,” McCarley said. “But there is always that though that, ‘I wish that she was here to see what God has done in such a short time.’ I continue to honor my godmother and the legacy she left. To God be the glory.”

What’s even more intriguing, let alone an even greater blessing is that McCarley’s beloved companion, fellow Buffalo native Rachel M. McCarley, is right there alongside him, collectively helping him shepherd God’s people for such a pivotal time as now.

MEN OF VALOR — “I became unsatisfied with ministry as usual,” McCarley, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, when asked when did sense that God was strategically preparing him for ministry. “I believed there had to be more to this then just church Sunday after Sunday.”

“My family support system has been great,” McCarley said. “I couldn’t do this without them…first being my wife, who is a phenomenal vocalist, who sings and helps train others in our ministry in the art of music and has a great anointing over her life for women’s ministry. My mother has been one of the founding members of our church since the beginning. Even my 14-year-old daughter, Elissa McCarley, helps with some of our media and sings on the praise team.”

Given the solid, notable foundation that was established long before he was assigned to ministry, it’s no wonder McCarley is walking in his purpose with such boldness and authority.

With God, his Helper, steering the way.

LEADING GOD’S PEOPLE — Given the solid, notable foundation that was established long before he was assigned to ministry, it’s no wonder McCarley is walking in his purpose with boldness and authority — with God, his Helper, steering the way.

McCarley, in fact, is the product of a tradition-rich family of preachers, most notably Bishop Clint Roberts of First Born Apostolic Church in nearby Erie, Pennsylvania, Reverend Bernie McCarley, the Founder of St. John Baptist Church in Buffalo (one of city’s most prominent churches) and Devon McCarley, his sister who has a Master of Divinity.

“I have been in the church all of my life,” McCarley said. “I always had dreams of being a musician in the church and as I grew I pursued those dreams. My mother (Carolyn McCarley) was a hard worker, taking care of her family. My father (C. Dennis McCarley) was a strong, God-fearing man, who had great creativity and talents.  He was a father figure to many.”

MAKING MASSIVE KINGDOM STRIDES — Because of who is and because of the divine calling on his life, McCarley doesn’t shy away from the notion that he’s been set aside for God’s use to have a massive kingdom impact — even if it meant doing so outside of the traditional walls of the church.

Interestingly, what proved to be arguably the biggest difference while being raised in a Christian-oriented environment is that McCarley’s parents kept God the Focal Point of their family.

All of which practically explains why he’s having such a remarkable kingdom impact in this, the infancy stages of his pastoral tenure.

CHANGING A GENERATION — Located at 319 Northland Avenue in Buffalo, New York, Tabernacle of Praise appropriately accompanies what its beloved servant labels a tag that reads: “Where wounded lives and broken hearts find new life in Christ Jesus.”

“My parents put the fear of God and the love of God in me at a young age, believing that I had a purpose on my life at a very young age,” McCarley said. “With their investments in me, I became a talented drummer, traveling with a few jazz and gospel artists. Everything I know musically was birthed within the church.”

Most importantly, virtually every kingdom-based contribution he executes is a constant reminder, of sorts, as to why God thought it necessary five-plus years ago to assign McCarley to what undoubtedly is the grandest assignment of his young life.

And boy oh boy, he’s surely raising the bar, thus creating a remarkably exquisite legacy in the process.

With God, his Helper, steering the way.

There’s no other way to put it.

New York Celebrity/Relationship Therapist Vladimire Calixte: ‘I really want the professional athletes to inquire about Therapy For Black Men’

“I really want the professional athletes to inquire about my new Therapist Directory TherapyForBlackMen.org, because strength still needs support.”  — New York Businesswoman Vladimire Calixte

 

Vladimire Calixte can be appropriately described as a number of things.

Game changer is surely one of them.

HAVING A GLOBAL IMPACT — A native of Haiti who migrated to the United States at the tender age of eight, Vladimire Calixte is widely known for her sustained success as a New York City-based entrepreneur, a tenure that spans nearly two decades.

“I am so excited and honored to be on the cover of Bronze Magazine May Issue,” Calixte told Making Headline News this week.

Much to her delight, there are a variety of reasons why Calixte’s countenance is such that she’s harboring an array of excitement, all while waiting with great expectancy the immeasurable success that figures to come her way in the foreseeable future.

A native of Haiti who migrated to the United States at the tender age of eight, Calixte is widely known for her sustained success as a New York City-based entrepreneur, a tenure that spans nearly two decades.

“My own past challenges and emotional pain inspired me to do this work,” Calixte said.

The work to which Calixte is alluding is her valiant, well-publicized contributions as a Celebrity and Relationship Therapist, as well as an accomplished Author and Transformational Speaker in the Private Practice industry known as Life Rebuilding.

MORE ON LIFE BUILDING: https://www.liferebuilding.com/

A New York City-based establishment in which Calixte is the proud founder of the Therapist Directory called Therapy For Black Men, amongst her notable responsibilities is centered largely on helping men of color find a wide range of resources aimed at helping them in their search for a multiculturally-competent therapist.

“I engage individuals, couples, and families in therapy,” Calixte explained. “As such, I work with children, adolescents, women, men, couples and families from all walks of life, including celebrities, politicians and professional athletes.”

When asked how her competitive drive in life has greatly propelled her for your business venture, Calixte appropriately provided a whole new twist to such an inquiry.

GAME CHANGER — Calixte is Celebrity and Relationship Therapist as well as an accomplished Author and Transformational Speaker in the Private Practice industry known as Life Rebuilding.

“I wouldn’t say a competitive drive, but a deep passion to help others live a powerful life by supporting and challenging them to become emotionally free,” Calixte said. “That’s what ultimately sent me on the path to opening up my own practice. Furthermore, because of my private practice, I am able to support more people in their healing journeys via several platforms such as writing my books, speaking, as well as radio and television.”

A progressive and thriving business venture that is starting to attract more of a global presence although it is based in America’s largest city, Calixte has certainly paid her dues, particularly with regards to savoring sustained success and establishing solid rapports with celebrity athletes.

Interestingly, she boasts the essential educational credentials to function mightily in her element for such a time as now.

Having earned a Sociology degree from Hunter College, Calixte followed up that milestone by earning a Master’s degree in Applied Psychology from the historic New York University.

Interestingly, she is currently a Licensed Mental Health Counselor as well as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, and her presence in the psychology industry spans more than a decade, during which she has helped various clients around the world overcome addiction, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, and sexual abuse and PTSD.

Also, Calixte is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology.

As for her wealth of experience in her selected field, Calixte routinely works with children, adolescents, women, men, couples, and families from all walks of life, including celebrities, politicians and professional athletes, she acknowledged (“I really want the professional athletes to inquire about Therapy for Black Men.”)

MORE ON THERAPY FOR BLACK MEN:  https://therapyforblackmen.org/

 

“I am a big proponent that our actions affect seven generations,” said Calixte, adding that her own past challenges and emotional pain inspired me to do this work. “My work is supporting people to heal from wounds and traumas, which will greatly impact their lives seven generations over. I know what it feels like to muster the courage to be imperfect and be ok with that. I know what it feels like to grow up without a father. My mom did her very best as a single mother; however, my father’s absence was painful for me for a long time. I know the feeling of “emptiness” and “worthlessness” because my father chose not to be in my life.”

For what it’s worth, fortifying an array of transparency to those whom she assists has proven extremely beneficial, thus contributed mightily to Calixte’s success.

“Living that experience was a source of hurt, anger, and feelings of diminishment,” Calixte recalled. “I have journeyed from pain to inner peace. Also, at age 14, we had a fire in my apartment on a very cold January day. The bed that I was sleeping on caught fire. I could have died. We ran out of the apartment with nothing but the clothes on our backs.

“Everything was completely destroyed,” Calixte continued. “So when a client comes to me and states, ‘I am down to nothing’ or ‘I am having empty feelings.’  I can look into this person’s eyes and know exactly what he or she is feeling because I have been there. It’s that connection. That is what gives purpose to my life.”

INTERNATIONALLY-ACCLAIMED — Calixte’s immeasurable body of work practically sums up why she has been invited by Euro Mental Health to be its Keynote Speaker at the Annual Congress on Mental Health in July 2018 in Paris, France.

Not only that, Calixte’s immeasurable body of work practically sums up why she has been invited by Euro Mental Health to be its Keynote Speaker at the Annual Congress on Mental Health in July 2018 in Paris, France.

Oh, and let’s not forget the other dazzling honor whereby she will be thrust on the cover of Bronze Magazine’s May issue.

“By the grace of God, I am honored to be named the No. 1 Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York by Thumbtack for 2018,” said Calixte, who has also announced that she will be hosting a nine-city book tour for the forthcoming re-release of her award-winning book entitled, Naked and Transparent: Six Vital Tools for Knowing Yourself and Attracting Healthy Relationships.

“My work enables people to become aware of their narrative identity,” Calixte added. “I am a big proponent of knowing who you really are. When you know who you really are, it will change the way live and the way you love. Similarly, it will give you an unparalleled sense of clarity.”

Spoken like a true game changer.
