“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” Dr. Seuss
My name is Cedenia, but many refer to me as Cee-Cee. Some hobbies of mine include singing (putting on concerts), planning and organizing events, traveling, and spending quality time with family and friends. I currently reside in the Flowood-Brandon area in which I will be representing Rankin County in the Mississippi Plus America Pageant.
A little about myself. In 2014, I graduated from Northwest Rankin High School. Upon this graduation, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Accounting degree with a Finance minor from Belhaven University in 2018. Currently, I am pursuing my Master of Accountancy at Mississippi College which I anticipate completing the fall of this year. While being a full-time student, I am also employed full-time at Rockett, Inc. where I hold the position as a Production Control Administrator. I attend Word Alive Church and Communion House in Brandon, MS. Here I am very involved and passionate about growing God’s kingdom with the gifts I have been equipped with. A few of my involvement is being the Finance Chairman, a member of the Praise and Worship Team, and assisting the youth ministry. My future goals are to not become complacent, continue to seek growth and new opportunities, encourage and inspire young, teenage women, and to be an advocate for women and single parents.
I am excited about this experience and to enter a fun, loving community with other women who will turn into lifelong friends.
WHY I CHOSE MY PLATFORM
I’m supporting this cause because single parents don’t get as much praise or assistance as needed from others. I was raised in a single parent household where my mom was everything: the provider, disciplinarian, nurturer, caretaker, etc. she put her life on hold (as real mothers do to make sure we had and got what we needed and wanted). She never complained. Today I’m grateful and successful because of her strength and God’s assistance.
Thanks in advance for your encouraging words AND Support!
