Today we’d like to introduce you to Jameice “Yoshi” Cockrell.
Hi Jameice, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
At the age of 9, I still remember every play I directed, and even the movies too I would yell “CUT” “ACTION” and even “START OVER” made by me and starring my family of course. I mean seriously I even wanted to direct the imaginary choir. Telling a story has always been my gift and curse.
My cousins would always act, I would create little production sets to only perform for my grandmother in the living room.
In 6th grade most of my stories stemmed from real-life relationships, I watched growing up of course with a mix of romance, and action and it been times when my aunt was chased by a couple of Dragonball Z characters, Goku, penny proud was my half-sister too, and me I was always Yoshi off of Mario Brothers in every scene I chose to put myself in no matter the story I just knew that I was Yoshi.
These stories started with crayons, colored pencils, and construction paper. As I got older those same pieces of construction paper turned into CRATES FULL OF NOTEBOOKS. God has a funny way of working man…
I’ve released a Docu-Series in 2020 on Kickin It With Yoshi Network! This series shows creatives who create to be placed in a new environment. Great stories so far you should check it out! As of this year, my team and I premiered Mindset Short Film which I directed into AMC HOFFMAN 22 theaters.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
There have been obstacles of course. I was told a week ago “I make being an entrepreneur look easy” I took it as a compliment however I don’t know how I feel about it.
It’s a journey regardless and I’ve learned so much along the way through falling and getting back up. The determination it takes to make it look easy isn’t always the easy part. I show gratitude for all things including life itself. Through my gratitude, I’ve also been appreciative of all the people that are no longer in my life.
A lot of people you realize aren’t who they claim to be, and continuing to remain grounded in what keeps my vision clear and keeps me focused. There is no great success without struggle.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
My name is Jameice Cockrell everyone calls me Yoshi and I am a results-oriented and passionate leader with extraordinary communication and delegation skills and the important ability to remain calm in stressful situations. Having worked as a senior mentor, volunteer director, and marketing manager at Laces To Bows INC.
For more than 5 years, I am fully equipped with the tools needed for all aspects of the job. I excel at maintaining all-time great customer satisfaction with provided services, coordinating various daily business operations, and developing new pricing models. I generate excitement, engagement, and enthusiasm among customers through activities, workshops, and events.
Empower customers to learn, create, and share so they can fully explore how their personal interests can come to life. I love creating hands-on customer experiences that enable others to get the most out of life. As a creative, I am skilled to illustrate how personal interest or hobby can be brought to life using Adobe Creative. It is imperative that you all know my capability of maintaining knowledge of new technologies, and trends to facilitate relevant workshops and activities.
I love identifying what excites customers and what is of interest in each local community. I have experience in planning and promoting workshops effectively to improve attendance and engagement for ongoing services and products. Mentorship is so important I truly believe in “each one teach one”.
My qualifications are to seek, analyze, interpret, and act on feedback from peers to improve their experience. When event planning for the community in Ward 7 Washington DC, engaging workshops was executed and coordinated by myself. I can demonstrate familiarity with internal and external resources available for customers who want to expand their knowledge.
I am well-rounded, I don’t limit my skill set on a job, additional support, and service functions within the service and training environment. Everything above you just read is what sets me apart from anybody else. There is only ONE Jameice “Yoshi” Cockrell.
Can you tell us more about what you were like growing up?
Growing up, I was happy and always wanted to love others the way my family loved me.
Everyone deserves to feel love. I’ve always been outgoing, loud, and making people laugh I did a lot as well. I was interested in sports between the ages of 6-19. I’ve always had the desire to compete and be active.
However, I didn’t even realize is a writer/poet expressing my feelings would eventually turn into films and poems. This became a hobby for me and as a professional storyteller now I have no complaints about my journey.
My steps are ordered and I thank God every day for my journey and ordering my steps.
