Shaun Jai is a speaker, graphic designer, event planner, wedding officiant,
tree hugger, and water lover that love to explore life.
Here is a brief history of who I am, what I do, and why we should connect:
Raised in Palmer Park, Maryland with two brothers and one sister. My amazing parents allowed and encouraged me to be as free, creative, and adventurous as I wanted to be. My passion for helping the community started at an early age. I created a boys and girls club in my neighborhood, using my father’s old wood to build a clubhouse; it was our safe haven. Not long after my entrepreneur spirit began to grow. I sold newspapers, collected and sold used books, and opened a candy store. One of my biggest accomplishments as a child was receiving the Girl Scouts of America highest award (The Gold Award).
From the outside looking in people would say I had an awesome childhood and I would have an awesome and productive life. Unfortunately, people in my life had other plans. My first experience with pain began when I was five years old, I was molested by a family member. A year later, an upper classman continued the pain by molesting me a second time, and within another year, I was molested for the third time by a neighbor. Years later, I experienced multiple rapes and sexual assaults. These experiences raised the question in my mind of “why me?”, I began to suffer from depression and thoughts of suicide.
Today, I share the message of “From Pain to Power “encouraging others to heal themselves from past trauma.
Who is Shaun Jai? I am proud to say despite all the pain I have experienced, I am a sister, daughter, mother, entrepreneur, speaker, community activist, a voice for the voiceless, and most importantly I am a SURVIVOR!
