Our special guest today is a Jane of many trades whose career spans across Entertainment and Technology.
A Chicago native, she is an American Entertainment Artist who is rapidly changing female M.C.s' game in the Hip-Hop Soul arena. She offers a variety of talents and rapping, ranging from lyrical storytelling and writing to performance art. Rather than adhering to the pressures many women in the music industry face, she speaks from her experience and wisdom, not superficial glitz and glam. Affectionately known as "Young Flame" in the spoken word community, because of her constant efforts to spark/ignite emotion from her audiences, she is now using this same spark as a gifted, lyrical wordsmith & hip-hop x soul entertainer.
She has helped blaze the STEM trail as a leader in User Experience Engineering practice for over 18 years, all while continuing to make her mark as a professional, internationally known recording artist, author, host, model, actress, and Poet.
Her work in STEM has afforded her opportunities to work, live and mentor in/out of the U.S. and has been highlighted on Network T.V. shows such as PBS's "Economic Outlook" and NBC's "The Steve Harvey Show."
Within the Entertainment Arena, she is an accomplished Hip-Hop Soul Artist with Spoken Word roots. She lends her art and story to youth and women organizations as a motivational speaker/facilitator. Her music spans hip-hop, house, jazz, and Neo-soul, and she has even been nicknamed "the Jay-Z of poetry" from the TVOne Network after landing her commercial on behalf of the "My Black is Beautiful" Procter & Gamble campaign and filming it in 1 take!
She has been featured on TVOne's Verses & Flow, shared the screen with seasoned television and film actors, such as Lawrence Fishburne, Jennifer Beals, and Terrence Howard. Also, you can hear her music on Spike Lee's "She's Gotta Have It" season 2 soundtrack (available now on Netflix).
Her new album titled "I Be." highlights a taste of her lyrical wordplay and encourages the message of being confident and unapologetic in who you are and what you stand for!
Her music has been in rotation globally on several radio platforms in and out of the U.S., and she co-headlined her first U.K. tour in 2019. She is not only a charismatic artist, but her path towards success within technology and art makes her unique in her own right.
