My Story, My Journey

By: Daejha Jade Moss

My Name is Daejha Jade Moss and I am a graduate of Queens College (Class of 2017) and a proud member of the 2017 PanAmerican U20 Athletics Championships (PanAm) Team, where I will be participating in the long and high jumps.

Every year I begin my season by setting my goals as to what I want to accomplish during the upcoming season.  My top three goals of my 2017 season were

  1. To qualify early for and to medal at the CARIFTA Games.
  2. To receive a full scholarship to a D1 University.
  3. To qualify and medal at the PanAm Championships.

I wasted no time in removing #1 & 3 off my bucket list, as I medaled in both events at the 2017 Carifta Games (sliver in high jump and bronze in long jump).  It was also at these Games that I cleared 1.73 meters in the high jump, surpassed the PanAm Championships qualifying standard of 1.70 meters. In my second meet (Sliver Lightening) after returning from Carifta, I jumped a personal best of 6.02m in the long jump to solidify my spot on the PanAm Championships Team.

In the fall I will be attending North Dakota State University on a full four (4) years Athletic Scholarship.

I am grateful to the Almighty God for keeping me injury free throughout my 10 year career.  I pray that He continue to preserve my teammates and I as we travel to Peru to represent the Bahamas. My goal is to medal in both events at the PanAm Championships.
