ShaDiamon Jordan is a role model for all

ShaDiamon and her sister are both honor roll students at Barden.

“It’s very nice that she is thinking about others rather than thinking about herself,” said her grandmother. ”She’s always been that way.”

Little said that ShaDiamon is a role model for other young people.

“Christmas has become so commercialized,” Little said. “From the church perspective, many times, we forget the reason for the season. We’re becoming more selfish. We’re becoming a selfish generation, and to have a child to come forth and to say that her priority is to help someone else, to me, that was a great moral thing to do and spiritually, it is what we’re all called to do and that is to help one another. If the children and their parents would stop being so selfish, this would be a much greater world we are living in.”

ShaDiamon knew what she wanted to do and knew she would need help.

“She understood that she couldn’t do it by herself, and she didn’t have a problem going and finding help instead of sitting back and doing nothing,” Little said. “The other thing is she had enough faith to take that step. So many times people have good intentions or they have great ideas, but they never bring them forward.

“To me, she just took the proper steps. She had an idea. It was from the heart. She didn’t hesitate. She had faith enough that her idea had merit and that someone would help her achieve her goal. So many dreams don’t get answered because so many people don’t step up.”
