Tajha’s Moment

Tajha Ilerant is from Immokalee, Florida. She lost both of her parents at a young age. Tajha let out her anger and sadness on others. She did not know how to channel this frustration. After watching Loretta Claiborne’s speeches, Tajha had a new direction. She wanted “to be an inspirational speaker, to do everything [Loretta] has done; but better.” Since then, Tajha has developed her voice. She now speaks on behalf of Special Olympics and the Unified Generation.
