Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It has never been easy but the journey has been worth it. I always strive to get to the top and nothing stops me from that.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
Wow, this is a loaded question and where do I begin? Professionally I’m a Communications expert who currently works in the Entertainment & Sports industry for my “9-5”. And with that, I work in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion space focusing on HBCU, HSI and Tribal Universities. Working in this space brings me so much joy because it helps push diverse students into these pipelines for internship and entry-level positions.

On the Creative side, I’m a Multimedia Journalist (AA, BA, MSc and MA in Communications). Which makes me versatile in Marketing, Public Relations, Advertising, Production, Social Media and etc. Being versatile is one of the things that makes me stand out in things I do. And through that, I have created, produced, directed and a few shows. I’m currently the creator, executive producer and host of my weekly Podcast called “Saturday Shade”, which keeps growing and this is my 5th season of it and happy to know I have gained over 5500 listeners and viewers across the Globe through different digital platforms.
