Effective Communicator, Diversity Advocate, Creative Individual

At a young age, I began speaking publicly on behalf of my great, great-grandmother Maggie Lena Walker. Her prominent legacy in Richmond, VA gave me early experience in communications gave me the opportunity to connect with people through her story. 

During my time in college, I served as a Student Ambassador where I was also selected to co-chair a committee planning our organization's biggest philanthropic event that raised over $4,000. I volunteered as a Diversity Educator through our Multicultural Center and was selected as a Campus Brand Ambassador for Daniel Wellington.


Professionally, I have interned at NBC 12 & CW Richmond, where I used my skills to assist the news and marketing department. During a semester in London, I interned at Wingfield PR, a fashion PR agency, where I gained valuable insight into the world of Fashion. 


I created this website to showcase my previous experiences, professionally, academically, and culturally which have shaped me into a more effective and diverse communicator and creator.
