February 1, 2022, will be a day 9-year-old Journee Nelson won’t forget.

The Palm Beach County Board of County Commission declared it “Journee Nelson Day.”

The reason? She was protecting her mother.

On Nov. 2, 2021, Journee and her mom, Danielle Mobley, had just finished shopping in West Palm Beach when a robber tried to grab her purse.

Journee tried to fight the man off, demanding he let go of her mother’s purse.

People nearby came to the pairs’ aid and the attacker got away.

Demetrius Jackson was arrested and charged with robbery and battery.

Journee was presented with a plaque and a resolution proclaiming Feb. 1 as Journee Nelson Day.

“Thank you,” Journee said to members of the commission.

The West Palm Beach Police Department honored Journee, back in November.
