Jha-Zeyia Butts

December 2019

We're finishing off another year of inspirational member profiles with a strong youth member named Jha-Zeyia Butts. Inspirational and strong describe Jha-Zeyia perfectly; at 10 years old, she successfully completed her Bronze Star, a swimming course that helps develop and test lifesaving skills. Next, she's got her sights set on earning her Bronze Medallion and working towards becoming a lifeguard. This past October, she inspired others with her entrepreneurial spirit. She was one of 13 young women and girls who presented at an International Day of the Girl event held at Mount Saint Vincent University.
