Today we’d like to introduce you to Ramika Boaze.
Ramika, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
For as long as I can remember my mother always helped people whether it was watching their children, providing food or services, even throwing events for the neighborhood kids She would always say things like “help others even when you know they cant help you back” or that ” a simple smile can change someone’s day” I always aspired to be like my mother I wanted to get that feeling of fulfillment from helping make someone’s day that much better than before they crossed my path. In my adulthood my mother created a non profit called couponing for the less fortunate through that we do many events to help the community like toy drives, back to school event, government worker give backs etc I got the opportunity to work side by side with her on every one of those projects and finally go that filling of fulfillment I was searching for! It was absolutely euphoric!! A few years later I met my spouse Daniel who brought to me this opportunity to help people even more through the government lifeline & Ebb Program. Day in and day out we meet people from all walks of life, we listen to their stories, we empathize with their struggles and the best part of it all is we are able to send them off with smiles and a way to connect with their families, sick or estranged loves ones, they are able to find jobs, some are able to check in with probation officers to prevent them from going to prison, etc. A lot of our friends, family and even people that we help always ask how we don’t get “burnt out” giving away 100s of phones each month and the answer is simple. Fulfillment! we love what we do and we will continue to do it for as long as we can anyone that wants the help we will be happy to provide it.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
As with all human beings somedays are not so swell sometimes you want to take more than the weekend off but when we open those doors and we see people that truly need our help all those feelings go out the window we remember what and who we are doing this for and snap right back into the getting the people connected mode!
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
What sets us aside from others I believe is our drive. Not only do we provide phones for qualifying individuals during our 10 hour days, I own a company “Meeks Customs” where I specialize in custom goods such as clothing, furniture, serving trays, etc. My spouse and Partner Daniel is a Music manager and Co Owns a Clothing company called “Boss Bidness” with our other partner Jefferey who is also a full time barber and musician (JD Da Boss) . We also help prep, cook and clean at my mother’s restaurant next door (Sue’s Soul Food Heaven) All of these are literally on a day to day basis we hardly take breaks by choice. We are all very proud of ourselves for getting focused, working for ourselves and building an empire with different sources of income while doing things we love!
