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

Hi Najla, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
The most important factor is to determine if it fits into your purpose and only you and God knows that. There are a lot of factors to make us want to give up but you also have to look beyond ourselves and our circumstances. The enemy, also known as own negative thoughts have a way of tricking us to believe that we aren’t who God sees us as. We all have God in us, let his light shine. If you feel like everything you have done isn’t good enough and the moment you wanna quit, don’t! & be absolutely relentless about it!

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 want the world to see me as a example that you can overcome any challenges in life you face. My music is uplifting, real, authentic and honest. I’m proud from where I started because I stayed consistent throughout the years. It wasnt easy though, i dealt with alot of depression and grief losing the closest people I love which is my biggest support system. Those challenges made me more relentless and focus on God’s purpose. I write better and speak from experience- after getting a BFA I would like to share knowledge and create more opportunities for people around me.

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?
I love to jump in my ride and go to Panama City Beach, Flordia real quick. Its only a 4 hour drive so that’s my oasis to reflect, have fun, eat fresh and local seafood and enjoy watching the sunset. Yes, that’s life lol

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
This may seem cliche but I really would have to shout out my mom. She singlehandedly broken generational curses by saying the words “I love you”. She exudes so much strength and embodies what God’s grace is, her foundation is the reason I’m able to live out my dreams and have faith that God will carry me. In return, I’m able to give that to other people through action, hence my company name Love.ENT LLC. Sometimes its not about what you do, its about who you are. Your contribution to society can come from being a example of love, kindness and grace.
