Jenai (Ana-e) Batista is currently known professionally as NIE. Additionally, she has worn various hats, as she is an American entrepreneur, mother, model to role model, mentor, poet, author, educator, owner and founder of the N.I.E. Inc., brand. Jenai comes from a turbulent childhood background rippled with a plethora of challenges as well as resilience. Which is why she desires to give back to those in need. Her riveting tale is not that of idealism often being told by many young main-stream girls of Barbie dolls or life within gated communities within the suburbs. Jenai's accounts are those of a former foster youth, abuse, domestic violence, among other challenges and was confronted with the residuals of homelessness. This courageous tale is a very cumulative and candid account of Jenai's resilience as characteristic of the human experience, a portrayal of determination as well as that of faith and forever enduring hope.
It has taken Jenai most of her life; present and past, to come to terms with who she is. Jenai contends that as a student of life, "Through forgiveness, understanding and patience that the soul can mend itself and positively touch the lives of others!" She has grown a lot throughout this arduous, life-long process and continues to grow daily. Her life experience's and transparency allows her to connect with the youth in such a unique way. Her dream is to step on the soil of many countries while sharing Gods love globally !
