Goddess of Shine
Goddess Mama Djombo glitters as guardian of the lush, green forests of Guinea Bissau. If her name sounds familiar, it is because Mama Djombo’s name was misconstrued by colonizers and replaced with the term mumbo jumbo, meaning “gibberish.” Still she shines.
Mama Djombo’s Guidance
You were born to shine. Be seen. Be heard. Be a movement. We need to know your name. We want to learn your dance.
Daring to rise and shine starts with the courage to be seen and heard. Your story matters, and someone needs to hear it.
Fear of shining brightly keeps you in the shadows, hiding and shrinking. There is no way to claim your voice and avoid rejection, criticism, and judgment, but you are not for everybody. If everyone likes you, you are not really being you.
“I am ready to be seen and heard.”
