When did you discover your love for media and sharing stories?
Middle school was the beginning of my love for media and sharing stories. Every time I wrote my biography and introduction, I imagined I was on the Oprah show. I would make up stories and mimic the White House Press Secretary. I later became the Editor-in-Chief of a magazine called Teen Times Today while still in high school. The magazine was written by teens for teens. This publication was distributed throughout Miami Dade Public Schools. Consequently, I was fascinated by stories and media very early on in my life.
What has been the most rewarding and challenging part of your career thus far?
Finding new clients is part of my job as a PR professional. Two Queens Media has been around for quite some time. We have been fortunate enough to have a steady flow of clients since Covid 19; our policy is that we only work with clients that can benefit from our services. Since the pandemic, we haven’t been able to service our clients in person; however, since we serve international clients virtually, converting to a full virtual model was simple. Some potential clients wanted Public Relations but didn’t have the budget or didn’t have a compelling story to communicate about their business or product. Two Queens Media helped companies resolve these issues by providing them with a PR audit to understand what was needed to continue working together. My most rewarding experience as a Publicist is watching something that I helped to build with my clients grow, teaching new publicists, and meeting new people.
