Where: Currently living in NYC. Born and raised in Atlanta GA.What do you do? I’m the PR Coordinator at Brian Reyes. I do all sorts of things from sample tracking, to writing, to merchandising. I love that every day I never know quite what to expect!
What inspires you? This may sound corny, but my grandmother has always been my biggest inspiration. She lived during a time when many African-Americans didn’t even have the opportunity to finish high school. She walked miles every day to attend a high school and college that would accept African American students just so she could get an education. It took her six years to get her college degree, but she never gave up. Any time I’m faced with a difficult situation, I always think of her and what she went through. I know that if she could reach her goals, in the midst of so much adversity, that I can definitely do anything I set my mind to!Why are you fly? I think every woman is fly in their own way and for so many different reasons. I think I’m fly at different times for different reasons. But right now, I’d say I’m fly because I finally got up the courage to move to New York to pursue my dream of working in fashion PR, and now I’m doing what I love!
Advice: If you have a dream, go for it. It’ll probably take a lot of work to get there, but once you do, it’s so worth it.
