Jayohcee recently had the invite and opportunity to meet Honduran Leaders Miriam Miranda & Bertha Zúniga Cáceres in NYC at NYCU in July 2017. Was an amazing and humbling experience realizing that we live in a parallel path of economic destruction. The struggles resonate equally in both homelands. The fight and cause and so similar that when listening you might feel they are telling your story. These woman are true leaders and Jayohcee appreciates meeting them and building with them for better a future.
