THE MULTIPOTENTIALITE YOU
WITH DAVIA "DIVERSIA" ELLIS
Davia "Diversia" Ellis
A multi-passionate queen, Davia "Diversia" Ellis serves as Ms Jamaica United Nations 2023 and is a creative health and family life educator, writer, and singer.
Since 2008, she enjoyed being a psychology practitioner, but all Davia could see was a little girl who grew to feel stuck and paralyzed by her potential, and almost equally weighing interests.
She noticed how this little girl, a valedictorian, scholarship recipient, and public speaker served her community assiduously. She was very comfortable addressing the largest physical audiences available, as well as reading or singing. However, she struggled with smaller things like receiving a compliment about her skills.
After all, they felt like hobbies, and they were always a reminder that she was stuck and wasting her life.
In 2017, feeling unsure about herself and differing interests or career path, she was sure about diving into the unknown by moving to Colombia, fulfilling one of her high school dream.
Her teaching experience in Colombia was a perfect fit, reminding her that she already knew her calling or callings. She accepted that one can take a multidirectional career path as opposed to a one-directional path.
Having explored her interests as a generalist and specialist, in the education, communication, and wellness industry, this psychology graduate spends her days advocating for “The Multipotentialite You”.
In the words of her song, she implores multifaceted people to:
“Step up! Check up!
Step out. You’ll work it out.
Fill up your cup. No doubt, you’ll work it out.
"Yeah you want success
Trust the process
Have a backup plan
Cope with stress
You may fail the test prepare to make a mess
Step by step, you’ll work it out
You will progress."
It’s fulfilling for Davia “Diversia” Ellis to plan, design, execute and evaluate health and wellness activities and experiences.
