Ugly Cry Unfiltered Blog is my personal testimony and platform to further develop my mission & ministry. I’m a 26-year-old African-American female Civil Engineering Evangelist from Buffalo, NY. I am a non-denominational, bible believing Christian and I desire to honor God in all areas of my life. I refuse to not be myself in this world. While I’m on this mission to help end cycles of poverty, I will use this blog to:

  1. Share how God is using me to serve underserved and oppressed people through civil engineering.
  2. Empower people to know, love and be themselves.
  3. Embrace people with the intention to know, understand and unconditionally love them.
  4. Expose the factors that I believe keep cycles of poverty going and identify resources available to combat them.

Note: Once my ministry is fully developed, it will be a personal success tool that embodies all of the above!

I’m sure you’re wondering what my Ugly Cry is about. Well, I’m excited to tell you! Click Here

“My personal mission is to help break cycles of poverty through service, empowerment, embracement, and exposure while armed with God’s love and wisdom.”

By supporting my mission in any way, you’ll be mainly equipping me with the means to service underserved and oppressed people as an Evangelical Civil Engineer.

Currently, I am raising money to service underserved people in Zambia, Africa with my civil engineering skills as an Engineering Ministries International Design Intern!!

Thank you SO much for your support! Please don’t feel obligated to give monetarily. I would rather you prayerfully ask God first before giving and only do so if you TRULY believe in my mission. I don’t need money from people who just want to push their own agenda on me. I realize most people that will benefit from what I’m doing don’t have a lot of money. So support how you can and with faith and watch God bless and enrich your life!

With God’s Love,

Jamara ❤
