Last week, I had the distinct honor of being invited to speak to the youth of Sugga’s Industries International, Behind The Scenes in Sports & Entertainment after-school program.
Held at Atlanta’s Turner Middle School, the program provides training to high school students in an effort to assist the sports and entertainment industry in diversifying its audience and talent pool.
Anyone who knows me is quite aware that I’m not a “public” speaking type of girl, so it was initially uncomfortable but because I was talking about something I love to do, the information flowed freely.
We discussed blogging, advertising, event coverage, video editing… just about everything that entails StraightFromTheA.com. Including social networking via Twitter, Facebook, etc…. we even touched on a bit of industry gossip (and you will be pleased to note, I kept it strictly P.G.).
[Sidebar: I almost fainted when told the others that Phaedra was my lawyer and I was at her wedding… you people really do pay attention, huh? 😆 ]
I’d like to take a moment to thank Tiphanie Watson and Suggas for inviting me out to speak to the kids. Hopefully, I shared some insightful information about this crazy world of entertainment blogging.
Fellow blogger and sister in the spirit Drama Dupree hit me up a few weeks ago for an interview on his Better Days Radio show. The show, hosted by Drama and Sir Daniel, aired last week and Drama send over a snipped of my interview. Mind you, I am not camera shy by any means, but radio? Umm….not my forte but I repped the “A” to the fullest. Drama and Sir Daniel asked me questions like, How Did You Get Into Blogging, What has changed most in Atlanta, and more. I shared my thoughts on Mike Vick and T.I. and admitted my heart belongs to Big Boi. Heeeeeey Twan! *waving*
