How does it feel to be nominated?
It’s an awesome feeling! I’m very appreciative of platforms like FunTimes, who strive to get the word out about rising Black millennials.
What are your plans?
I have a lot planned for the new year. I’m expanding my brand and exploring more global projects. I’ll be tackling important events around GRAMMYs weekend and the NBAAll-Star game. I’m also headed to London for some cool things. Stay tuned!
What are you engaged in?
I’m very passionate about community service. Recently, I went on visits to my alma mater—Rutgers University. I enjoy giving back to students by engaging and educating them on my career experiences. Classroom experience is key, but meeting career experts is also a plus, and I’m glad to be able to give back in that fashion.
To you, what does it mean to be a part of the diaspora? It’s very important to me. Black people are, and have always been, at the forefront of innovation. I think that this era makes that even more apparent. I’m happy to make my mark!
