She’s an accomplished woman who grew up in the Trenton projects; empowered herself from McDonald’s fry girl to prosecutor in the New York City justice system; had the guts to put herself in the public eye, becoming a popular television personality, who so gracefully declared, “You'll forgive me, but I'm from the South, so every adult Southern woman gets a 'Miss' in front of her name."  This brief portrait describes none other than the controversial Star Jones.  

Star Jones is getting a lot of flack for locking horns with media titan, Barbara Walters companied with plenty more media gasoline surrounding this diva. But the fact is, a true diva feeds off of every flame and with each singe, rises from the ashes with power tenfold.

Unbeknownst to many, there is a Star Jones in us all.  If you have not yet found her, it is time you quicken to recognize and embrace that fiery dragon inside.   

On October 24th, the Fifth Annual ESSENCE Women Who Are Shaping the World Leadership Summit will commence at the Marriott Marquis Hotel located at 1535 Broadway between 45th and 46th Streets in New York City.  Bringing to the table the most coveted and empowering secrets of what makes them excel in their fields will be Dr. Juanita Bynum, Minister and Entrepreneur; Robin Roberts, co-anchor of ABC News' Good Morning America; Michelle Singletary, Washington Post Nationally Syndicated Columnist; and Roland Martin, CNN contributor, and the unstoppable “Ms.” Star Jones.
