I have been an entertainment journalist for 19 years, precisely yesterday, June 3, I turned 19. I started in the Latin entertainment industry writing in the entertainment section of LAZOS HIPANOS, the only newspaper in that year at that time (2003) from Minneapolis, Minnesota, from there I kept working collaborating as a correspondent for some Mexican media. I have worked with some Mexican artists such as booking manager getting some specific presentations to television talents in 2014 . Read more>>
My love for music stems as far back as I can remember. Musicians run in my bloodline. When I was 9 years old I started listening to artists like Lil Uzi Vert and Migos. Around this time, I was inspired to start making my own music so I picked up my sister’s Beats and Macbook Pro and the magic began. I recorded my first song and my sister shot a video for me on her iphone. I took the footage and used Final Cut Pro to edit then released it on Youtube. Read more>>
I was born and raised in Atlanta, before the city got it’s start in the entertainment industry thanks to the Walking Dead. I grew up loving adventures, food, fashion, and learning the mysteries of the universe. I always knew I was meant to speak on camera, work with beauty and fashion, and most particularly be an advocate for my fellow women. Life took an exciting turn for me when I graduated high school a year early and began my cosmetology education at the Aveda Institute of Atlanta. Read more>>
I was born in Miami, Florida and raised in Lithonia, Georgia. Growing up, I was an only child who was very involved in sports, but also had lots of time to myself. I was a very artistic/creative child. I loved to draw, paint, write, dance etc. I vividly remember being so infatuated with poetry and writing stories. I would sit in my room for hours and let my imagination just take over. But, on the other hand, music has always been apart of my life. Read more>>
How we started: While eight months pregnant, I was laid off from my dream job in Corporate America and unlike my coworkers who could just go out and interview the next day, that was just not my reality. This was the first time in my life where I felt like I had very limited options and I never wanted to be in this position again! That experience proved to me that you cannot place all your eggs in one basket and just rely on a JOB to secure your lifestyle and future – you must create OPTIONS for yourself. Once I shifted my mindset and started focusing on how I could create multiple streams of income, the answer became crystal clear – it was entrepreneurship. Read more>>
Over the years I’ve worn many hats that have gotten me to where I am today. From being a makeup artist to a beauty influencer. Currently I’m a micro lifestyle influencer, a Hooters Girl and most importantly, the owner and operator of JD Virtual Assistance. I started JDVA earlier this year after stumbling across a TikTok about others doing the same thing. They were all starting online businesses and really making a difference in their spaces and I realized I had the capacity to do the same. Read more>>
