Juszina Maria was born and raised in Gary, Indiana and is the third oldest of six children. She currently resides in Indianapolis, Indiana and has two wonderful sons, Roosevelt and Ryan. Her granddaughter, Neasia, means the world to her.
Juszina’s mother instilled the value of hard work and how it was so important to attend school and learn a trade. Her grandmother would always say, “Do something you love doing and you will never work a day in your life”. This was definitely a true statement and as a result of that guidance, Juszina graduated from Gary Lew Wallace High School and then the Chef Academy in Indianapolis, with Honors. She then became the owner of Classy Diva Caterers and the Agency Owner of her own Insurance Company.
Juszina always wanted to figure out different ways that would allow her to give back, help and be a blessing to others. She has a passion for cooking which is a gift from God. She plans to share this gift with the world through a series of cookbooks and eventually her own cooking show.
