ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Jineea,

A Scholar Who Happens to be an Athlete

WHERE I COME FROM

Originally, I am from Cherry Hill, NJ.  I was born in Philadelphia and moved to New York in 1993 on a Full NCAA Division 1 Basketball Scholarship to Long Island University, Brooklyn Campus.  There I studied Psychology and graduated the all time leading scorer and rebounder with 1000 points and 1000 rebounds breaking several NCAA Division 1 records with my degree in hand.  I graduated 15th in the Nation in rebounding (9.9 rpg) 23rd in the Nation in shooting percentage (64.3%) and I even hold a record for going 10 for 10 in one game. Perfection!   But being an athlete was not enough for me so I followed my passion for helping people.

A THRIVING CAREER

Let me start off by saying, I put my all in everything I do.  Just like my basketball career, I strive to be the best I can possibly be as a woman, as an entrepreneur, as a daughter, as an athlete and as a human being.  It was important for me to study my craft and learn as much as I could about servicing our communities.  My first job out of college was in Supportive Housing for those living with HIV/AIDS.  I then went to work on Rikers Island as a Counselor of Addiction Treatment where I honed my skills working in the largest detention center in the country.  On Rikers Island, I introduced my first workshop Hip Hop From a Clinical Perspective; I received an accommodation from the Commissioner.  Michael Bloomberg who was Mayor of New York at the time closed our program and I took my talent to Homeless Services.  I quickly rose through the ranks starting as the Clinical Coordinator for a 48-Bed Women's Shelter, I was promoted to Director of Workforce Development where I oversaw the job placements for 10 originations within the agency.  I was then sought after by the biggest homeless service agency in the country and subsequently took a job as the Director of Career Development for New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia and produced great results.  But I knew until we changed the law we couldn't maximize the potential of these populations. 

For the past 12 years, I have joined the Civil Rights crusade and have worked alongside the legendary Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr. and the Rainbow Push Coalition where I learned the ins and outs of America. A lot of people have issues with Reverend Jackson,  but he genuinely allowed me to incubate and find my place in the American landscape.

I began taking the responsibility of leading the Hip Hop Community into being better citizens in business and politics.  We were able to reinvigorate the Hip Hop Community and move the needle forward for the Hip Hop Entrepreneurs and citizens worldwide.  

Now we have to take the next step, and for the last 6 years I have been working on a ground breaking project called the New American Agenda.   Together, we will Redefine the American Dream for the 21st century and ensure every citizen has the opportunity to achieve it for themselves and their children.

That is why I hope you can make a generous donation of $25, $50, $100, or even $500, or $1,000 to Jineea for Congress today. 

MISSION STATEMENT

The New American Agenda for the Urban Opportunity

The Solution

Most people look to candidates for which issues they are championing.  I am here to work for and provide solutions to the people.  Most politicians do not have the experience to back up their ideas.  I do not have ideas I have solutions.  I am not coming to the table to learn from scratch, I am seeking a seat at the table to represent the community I have taken the time to learn and lead from A to Z.   The New American Agenda encompasses all issues Criminal Justice Reform, Education, Civil Rights, Healthcare, Economics and Business and puts them in position where we can grow, formulate and execute a blueprint that will accelerate our global positioning. 

We can SOLVE the persistent cycle of poverty and violence in urban communities and create a foundation for long-lasting prosperity.  Our intention is to move past “working on it” with an approach that harnesses the pillars of prosperity to catapult these communities from the bottom of US performance to a globally competitive position in one generation.

 

The Pillars of Prosperity

Human Capital Development

We will unleash the talent of the Community to become globally competitive and well prepared to earn a living in the 21st century. 

  • Developing human capital strategies to understand the work of the future

Economic Development

  • Private funding platform for the community including foreign investment, crowd-funding, preparation of businesses for financing and cryptocurrency.

Citizen Engagement

We will empower the Community to become a powerful political force in the 21st century.
