Meet Janiece Sarduy of Janiecespieces

Today we’d like to introduce you to Janiece Sarduy.

Janiece, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Originally from Miami and a professional dancer from the age of four, being on stage was home and always felt like a part of me. Taking the plunge to move to LA, away from my Cuban family and culture was tough but also inevitable. I was able to pursue my dreams of acting and dancing. I lived and breathed it and will forever be thankful that I pursued and successfully lived my dreams as both an actress and dancer. I married my husband and had our beautiful children and decided to allow my career to take a back seat. Throughout my life, no matter what was going on, I found solace in writing poetry and I am proud to say that publishing my first book has been both a challenge and a joy! Creating it was like birthing another child! Sharing it also feels like sharing those cute pics of your baby! LOL!

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
NO! Smooth road… What is that? I was raised by a strong and young single mother. I started working at 12. I haven’t stopped since. I’m just thankful that I adopted my frame of thought at a young age… “Negative experiences always turn into positive outcomes.”

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
For many years I was known for dancing, choreographing and performing. It was definitely a challenging transition into a now self-published author and producer. I think what sets me apart is that I know no limits and don’t live in a box or allow myself to be just one thing. I am proudly multifaceted. At the moment, I am honored to be able to share my book – Evolution of a Poet.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Being flexible and patient and always trusting GOD. I have always been a go-getter or as we call it where I am from, a hustler. Becoming a mother, I had to learn to be flexible, patient and trust that God knew what was best for me in order for my success to continue.
