We had the good fortune of connecting with Tanzania Jackson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tanzania, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind Gift God is God. Believing in the higher power to succeed internally, so it can be shed externally. Living through God has shown me that success is your own definition, and not a status-quo.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My music is natural, loving, and heartfelt. I am more so excited that my brand is coming together as I am learning strategies to be apart of graphic design and photography. I created a billboard for myself in 2020, and that was a huge milestone for me. Taking the time to learn those tools sets me apart from others because it gives me an outlet for income as well as the foundation to remain my own. I also love that having different skills brings different relationships to build on and connect with. I am improving, and growing everyday.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If you are hanging out with me in the city please be prepared to eat because we are going to eat a lot!
I love Chef Kodak, New Orleans Bar and Daiquiri, and many more. Atlanta has a great scene for food, and we are going to try them all.
I also love the night life, and cars so we will attend car and bike shows. Most of the people in Atlanta have nice cars so we will be fascinated to them race and have fun.
I also love to wind down, and relax so going to parks or at the lake is definitely in mind as well. Nature is peaceful.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to shoutout my loving grandmother, Lucille, may she rest in paradise.
I would love to shoutout Stacey, DJ 2 Face, may she rest in paradise.
Also, a book to remember, The Power by Rhonda Byrne.
