In an effort to further this mission, Kenya became the administrator of a new-thought blog,www.silencebeseen.com and formed the #silenceBEseen t-shirt brand, Facebook, and Instagram community. Each of these spaces emphasize the importance of changing the world by changing yourself and leading by example.

Where is My Stuff?" Navigating the Quarterlife Crisis with Wisdom and Skill
At age 25, Author Kenya Jackson had three degrees and no job. $100,000 in debt, and with nothing tangible to show for the 20 years she had spent in school, she found herself in the emotional choke-hold of a quarterlife crisis. In a fit of anger and desperation, she posed one hypothetical question to the universe. Where- is- my- stuff? Finding the answer to this question led her on a three year spiritual journey; and in the midst of it, she discovered the concept of empty.s p a c e.
A play on words, representing both the physical empty space of lack, and the infinite potential encompassed in the universe, the word s p a c e represents the cosmic emptiness that gives birth to all form and all life. The idea behind highlighting this emptiness is to show that in nothingness, everything and anything is possible.
Using concepts found in psychology, sociology, metaphysics and Buddhism, this book picks up where other books on the subject leave off and answers the “where is my stuff “question from a spiritual perspective.
Through thought provoking narratives, personal accounts, and affirmations rooted in science and spirituality, Jackson’s debut self-help memoir, Empty.s p a c e: Where is My Stuff? Navigating the Quarterlife Crisis with Wisdom and Skill exposes the thoughts, emotions, and belief systems that both cause and reinforce the “quarterlife crisis.”
