3. What inspired you to create this extension of your brand?
I was inspired by my own journey to create this platform. When I graduated from college with my “Mass Communications” degree there was no one to direct me or assist me with breaking into the professional industry of journalism. I endured multiple failures, mistakes, and road blocks before I figured out my own path. I want to assist young creatives like myself, so that they won’t have to experience the ups and downs that I endured within my journey. There was a need for a community for creatives to learn, embrace, and empower each other.
4. How do you balance your many travels, events, and commitments as a media pro?
It’s very hard to balance it all but I pre plan and schedule my days and months out so that I make time for business, self care, and family of course. I’m still learning daily on perfecting balancing it all honestly.
