Uzima anniversary letter


The Queen of Hip Hop Soul, Mary J Blige, has a new song called Spinnin.

The collaboration with legendary songwriters, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, is another anthem for us. As I started this project listening to reminiscing on the words of “My Life”, her new joint, describes how this prolonged COVID-19 new environment has made the us feel. We are spinnin’ and it feels like we are out of control. Now, with the resurgence of the Delta variant in the U.S; round and round we go.

As we celebrate the One Year Anniversary of Uzima Health and Wellness, I want to remind you that Uzima means life in Swahili. This pandemic has brought so much loss of life, physically, mentally and emotionally that we need to remind ourselves that we are living. If you are alive there is work and purpose. There is another day to believe in health and wellness.
