We’re excited to highlight successful women here in Dallas each month. It is our mission to bring forth some of Dallas’ influential women that doesn’t go searching for the spotlight, but instead allows others to shine a light on them.
September 2016 Spotlights: Jocelyn Ja’Net
Jocelyn Ja’Net became a victim of child sexual abuse at the hands of her step-dad at six years old. Through a 5 year time span she was emotionally and sexually abused in her home. Her abuser was a man of the cloth a ordained minister and pastor. She is proactive towards prevention of child sexual abuse through her women’s group, SISTERS WITH STORIES. Jocelyn Ja’Net, is now leading women abuse survivors towards freedom. She founded Sisters with Stories September 22, 2011.
They share stories of their struggles and victories. Jocelyn has hopes that by sharing her story captives will be SET FREE. And she hopes she can eventually help give parents and people who work with children the tools needed to prevent child sexual abuse, as well as encourage abuse victims to come forward despite threats from their predators.
Others have started to back her cause, too. Jocelyn has worked with former NFL player and motivational speaker Trent Shelton, WFAA news reporter Rebecca Lopez and former NFL player Jesse Holley & Motivational Speaker Baylor Barbee. Jocelyn Ja’Net has had her hands in media hosting as well. She’s interviewed Kirk and Tammy Franklin, Keyshia Knight Pulliam, Emmit Smith and a host of others.
Jocelyn is launching a campaign August 27th entitled I Overcame & Conquered. The campaign will feature 6 ladies who have suffered through homelessness, drug abuse, rape and grief. She will reach broken little girls, teens and women who suffer with insecurities, self image, and brokenness.
September 22, 2016 will be her 5 year anniversary for her sisterhood Sisters with Stories. Five years of community outreach serving the homeless, the youth, single mothers and prayer & conference calls. Dave Hollister, Laterras R. Whitfield, Derrick Price, Deiondra Sanders have graced her conference line. She has definitely served her purpose in the Dallas-Fort Worth Community!
