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

Hi Jayda, alright, let’s jump in with a deep one – what’s you’re definition for success?
I define success by the amount of lives you touched ; The people you’ve inspired to be free. It’s not about the largest bank account or the followers, Success is determined by the impact you have. I know i’ve succeeded when i can say lived each day as my true authentic self.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My career spans over 6 years, with industry experience ranging from Fine Dining to Fast Casual Food Service. What sets me apart for others is that i’m a empath that connects through food. Food is the only universal language that everyone can understand. It’s the best way to connect with people; Vulnerability becomes the theme when everyone is gathered around the table. Professionally i’m not where i’d like to be; but i know it’s levels too it. I’ve achieved many accomplishments within my 25 years of living. Everything i’ve wanted i’ve manifested and i know i must continue to do that to reach the levels that i wish to meet professionally. It wasn’t easy though, Life isn’t meant to be easy, it’s meant to be lived. Sometimes we live a happy stress free life and unfortunately other times are rough … But every up and down
you learned something that makes you stronger and that’s how you overcome. In all i want the world to know that anything that has my name on it will be perfect. I want my food, my art, my passion to be enough.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
This question leaves me stumped, Only because i’m a homebody an introverted extrovert if you will. So being that i’m my own bestfriend. I’d start off with a beautiful brunch style picnic at Riverside Park in Roswell,Ga. followed by some retail therapy at my favorite mall – Perimeter Mall off Ashford Dunwoody. Then we’d end the day with dinner at my favorite restaurant Ray’s on the River ( they have 3 locations i’ve visited all of them) and enjoy some laughs over wine. That’s an ideal day, week, or weekend that i’d love to share with friends.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
When asked this question, My initial thought was to say – “No one”. My story is different i’ve always felt alone especially growing up. I feel even more lonely now then i did years ago. God deserves everything, I give everything unto him unselfishly. I have favor over my life or at-least I believe I do; there’s something inside of me that allows me to keep going , to keep pushing even when i had given up and didn’t want to continue. God was there – without him hearing my cry’s of loneliness, my anger, my frustrations — Every time he was there, and for that i’ll be forever grateful.
