Miss. Regina “Gina” Silas, Founder and CEO of The JBS Foundation, INC. - A Social Entrepreneur and Culinary Arts graduate. She studied at Le Cordon Bleu College and Johnson & Wales University. She’s a Philosopher and History Connoisseur. A certified global food tech entrepreneur and an Ignite Afrika graduate. She has dedicated her career to developing agriculture and promoting food sovereignty in Africa, with the goal of uniting all 54 countries of the African diaspora. She embellishes and embraces opportunities and projects of historical persuasions within the cultural diaspora. As a result of her grandfather’s tutelage, (Joseph B. Silas) she learned to have more than a mere appreciation for art, never forgetting her grand admirability of Opa-locka’s “one- of-a-kind” historic Moorish architecture and unique structural design. “I think it’s time for this generation to bring the generations together, and work side by side so we can take our place in history. We haven’t had anyone move this generation or this nation in a great capacity like now. And I believe “The Golden Era” will be just that. We’re taking our place in history. The City of Opa-Locka will serve as a MECCA for people of the African Diaspora and/or people of BIPOC communities. It’s time for the curse to be broken off the nation.”
