*Who could not feel this Atlanta woman’s joy as she broke out in an “I’m feeling myself” dance following what she felt was a knockout job interview?
Kallayah Jones told Atlanta’s CBS46 that she has been homeless for two years and lost a number of jobs due to the pandemic. On September 29, she went in for an interview at restaurant The Spot in Decatur. The venue’s manager, Dakara Spence said she saw something special in Jones during the interview.
“She had a great energy I felt it as soon as she walked in she seemed really positive,” Spence told the outlet.
Jones felt the good energy as well, which manifested in a sudden happy dance that was captured on the venue’s surveillance camera. Spence said, “I called her phone and I said I’m going to hire you and I seen your happy dance so you can continue dancing. She was just screaming through the phone and it was just a beautiful moment for me.”
“Ms. Dakara didn’t know but I was going through so much and at that point when she gave me this chance and this opportunity. I was elated, excited and so overwhelmed to the point where no one understood how happy and accomplished I felt at that moment,” said Jones.

*Rocking a beautiful Black Lives Matter Christmas “ugly sweater,” Congresswoman-Elect Cori Bush blessed the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Tuesday and talked about everything from her first priority after taking office, to going thrift shopping with her soon-to-be Congressional colleagues Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley – both members of “The Squad,” which will officially welcome the Missouri congresswoman into its progressive bosom in January.
