We had the good fortune of connecting with Jada Roy and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jada, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I believe one should understand what a risk is first which it to know is a chance you are willing to take resulting in a high or low outcome. I believe taking risk and stepping out on faith is important and it’s a major role that I have taken in my life and career allowing me to see the different journeys a step out on faith and taking a risk is taking me.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I currently work at a accounting firm and it was not easy being a young black female at 22 years old to be able to thrive in corporate America as I have face plenty of challenges and still overcoming them to this day. Don’t give up on what it is you want out of life and whatever you put your mind to you can do and don’t let no one tell you different. Things you may want in life may not be what you need so be aligned within whatever your belief is because I thought I would be a lot of things but The man above has different plans and routes set out for me so I am learning to completely let go and let him guide me and use me in the way he is planning too

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am born and raised in DC however after getting so familiar with Baltimore and staying there for 4 years for undergrad I would definitely catch a vibe out there the food is top tier Baltimore has some hidden gems and the night life is cool as well. We would most like stay within the city though so like fed hill, the harbor , harbor East maybe canton.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
God first, my parents and Coppin State University.
