In the iconic words of Destiny’s Child, Janea’ Harris is a Survivor! She is an Advocate! She is a Voice of the people!

Life for Janea’ has been no crystal stair, as she is a survivor of domestic violence, homelessness and teenage pregnancy. Overcoming the grief of losing a sibling to gun violence in 2008 has invited her to become a voice for the youth, as well as, those who have been overlooked and counted out in life.

Janea’ Harris is a mother of three, and her educational background is rooted in Human Services. In addition to operating O.N.F.I.Y.A., she is also an inspirational speaker for various organizations and state agencies in both Georgia and South Carolina.

As her journey continues and she impacts several communities as an activist, Janea’ currently serves as the Youth Commissioners Advisor for the Legislative and Social Injustice committee in Clayton County, GA. One of her favorite quotes is “You’re not a victim for sharing your story, you are a survivor setting the world on fire with your truth. And you never know who needs your light, your warmth and raging courage.” -Alex Elle
