Honoring the Strong Women at JAFRA
Celebrating Women's History Month with Empowering Stories!
By Nicole White
True to our Mission and Vision statements, JAFRA has been transforming lives, empowering women, and building an inclusive community of entrepreneurs through high-quality beauty and fragrance products for 65 years. Those that are part of this community - at the corporate offices or as Beauty Consultants - enjoy a true sense of belonging and a heart-felt connection to each other and the founders. Appreciation for opportunity and one another is a common theme when speaking with any of these empowered, powerful women. In honor of Women's History Month, a few of JAFRA's entrepreneurs shared a story about a woman that made an impact on their lives.
March 30, 2021
Women’s History Month gives us the opportunity to celebrate every woman from all walks of life who have contributed in shaping our homes, education, labor, businesses, corporations, government, military and public service selflessly above and beyond. It is an honor and privilege to share the JAFRA digital platform celebrating Women’s History Month. The empowerment of women has made it possible to celebrate leading women of JAFRA, as well as an honorable salute to our President Judith Sanchez. The words used in her March action message to consultants describe her as an amazing, unstoppable, fierce and a committed leader of excellence and quality. “One Heart, One JAFRA”…a powerful theme empowering the careers and businesses of women with consistent vision, provision, inspiration, and committed leadership! While reflecting on President Sanchez comments and leadership, I couldn’t help but think of another strong woman who occupies a constant presence in my life. That person is none other than my beautiful mother, Vera Mc Million. Her 86 years on earth have come with many achievements… great and small… but certainly worthy of recognition, especially so as we celebrate 2021 Women’s History month. Her achievements and accomplishments speak gallantly and brilliantly of her character, integrity, effort, time and dignity of one who should be acknowledged in her reign as a mother, grandmother, friend, confidant, and as a steadfast disciple of Christ and his teachings.
I met my bestfriend when my two year-old and I became homeless. Now, we’ve been best friends for 11 years and I consider her more of a sister. We’ve lived together all this time and she’s one of my consultants. She pushes me every day and, above all, when I suffered an accident leaving half of my body burned, she was my physical and emotional support throughout recovery. She never gives up. She’s strong, brave and loving. She’s my best friend!
We would like to share with you my husband's grandmother. Alice Stebbins Wells was the first woman policewoman in the United States. Thank you #lawpoa for sharing this. We are so proud of Grandma Wells. She became a policewoman because she felt it was unfair the way that women were treated. As a young woman, she was very involved with the church. After graduation from high school, she attended Oberlin College in Ohio. Then she attended the Hartford Theological seminary. When she graduated, there wasn't a church available for her so she made a living as a bible lecturer. In the early 1900s she was given a church on the Indian Reservation in Oklahoma. In 1907, she and her family came to Los Angeles, California. She felt women were mistreated by police so decided to join the police force. Read more of this story from Lawpoa's Facebook page.
Here’s my story about two JAFRA women that have inspired me in my 33 years with JAFRA Cosmetics.
Sharon and Lori have always modeled JAFRA’s concept... Do what is in the best interest for your client and or consultant. Share your knowledge. Share JAFRA’s generous opportunity! Their passion and wisdom about the strength of our company and our awesome products is beautiful to watch and listen! When you share JAFRA you’ll never be disappointed, you’ll be blessed, but I feel the most blessed is having them in my life!!!! Thanks for the opportunity to lift them up!
