Today we’d like to introduce you to Layla Boyd .
Layla, before we jump into specific questions about your work, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My media journey began my freshman year of college, my major was always Communications but initially I wanted to pursue Physiology. That is until I began watching shows such as “The Real” “The Breakfast Club” which motivated me to start my YouTube channel, I think this is when I discovered that Entertainment in media was my calling. I began taking advantage of hosting events on campus and conducting a few interviews outside of campus. This career of really being a “Personality” drew me in and I’ve been committed ever since and the rest is definitely still to come!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Definitely has not been a smooth road! Struggles I’ve faced throughout this journey were things like finding the right people to network with, feeling like I wasn’t where I was suppose to be from looking at others and overall just pushing myself to stay consistent and motivated. Overall, I really want to say that everyone moves at their own pace, it’s not a race and to just stay focused, your time will come!
Luvlaylab – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Luvlaylab is a Radio Personality/Interviewer, interviewing is one of my specialties. I’ve interviewed upcoming artist and public figures in the Atlanta area, something that sets me apart from others would be that my interviews ARE about the artists achievements but I also dig into that personal aspect to get to know my guests for them as an individual and not necessarily the artist. The thing I am most proud of about my brand is that it’s so authentic and raw, my interviews are never forced. Everything shown is genuine!
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
My proudest moment would have to be when I got the opportunity to participate in a pageant for my University, although I did not win I say this is my proudest moment because the pageant pushed me out of my comfort zone in so many ways and gave me so much confidence, I got a better sense of who I was and what I stood for through my platform which was women in media, my talent was related to having my own Television talk show and this gave me a chance to show case my passion and career path. Overall, it was a really great experience and definitely pulled any fear of stage fright right out of me and in that moment I had to put my pride, fears, worries and doubts aside.
