I am absolutely honored to introduce this week’s feature. For about two years, I’ve been following Dr. Joy and her inspirational posts. She’s a great role model and a thriving leader in her community and I am so glad to have finally met her in person! Check out my interview with Dr.Joy below as she shares with us her hopes and dreams for the near future.
AM: Dr. Joy, You’re so interesting and inspiring as a person! Could you tell us a little more about yourself?
Dr. Joy :Well, I am from Flint, Michigan. I’m the youngest of five. I am Lead Faculty for a Masters of Public Health Program and Founder/CEO of The Confidence Academy. I am excited to introduce you to the Confidence Academy.

Confident Bliss is a new body line that I have. It is a body line of handmade body oils as well as soaps. It’s a partnership with Maurita’s Essentials out of Randallstown, Maryland. I’m excited to offer this product. Please visit confidenceacademy.info to find out more about Confident Bliss as well as other services that we offer. Understand this: when you’re confident on the inside, you’re confident on the outside and vice versa.
Dr. Joy: I hope to continue empowering women through speaking, books, and conferences. I am planning my first conference for Spring 2017. I think that confident girls, turn into confident women who understand their worth and value. Confident women can take on the world.
AM:What does Women Empowerment mean to you?
Dr Joy: To me, women’s empowerment means supporting other women, encouraging other women and to let women know that everything they need is on the inside of them. To remind them that they have the power to make their dreams come true and to change their community.
AM: Where do you see yourself in five years?
Dr. Joy: In five years, I hope to host an annual conference, write at least two more books, and have a non-profit for teen girls.
AM: Other than what was discussed here today, what’s something you’ve always wanted to do.
Dr. Joy: I love traveling. I have always wanted to travel to Dubai and South Africa.
Well there you have it!
