I was recently featured in this new series.
“On the Come UP” is a bi-weekly series that will highlight and amplify the achievements of the Young & Driven under 25 years of age. The series will bring to you in-depth and exclusive interviews of those that aren’t waiting to get tomorrow what they can start getting NOW. Of course young achiever testimonies, are prime content for Urban Professor, “The Voice of the Young & Driven.”
Check out my interview here.
UP: Okay so it’s safe to say that the Internet has been a significant facilitator in what you’ve accomplished thus far. Looking at your current position what can you say pushed you toward this industry?
- Rhonesha: I have a passion for news and information and I am also creative. Journalism was the thing that pulled all my skills together and entrepreneurship allowed me to take all of that to the next level without any boundaries.
UP: It’s a shame that that is even a reality, women not being looked to as leaders so to speak. It’s clear you’re one of the women On the Come UP, (no pun intended) regardless of these constraints as you are a living example of your website’s motto, speaking of inspiration and being motivated, what is some great advice you’ve received recently?
- Rhonesha: I’ve been lucky to receive a lot of advice over the years, but perhaps the most important piece of advice was the advice I was given as a child–the cliché phrase “you can do anything if you put your mind to it.” I absolutely think that being told this from a young age, impacted me and gave me the courage to do crazy things, like as a 16 year old reporter just starting out making phone calls to top politicians and celebs for interviews for a newspaper no one ever heard of!
UP: It’s definitely a goal of mine to acquire more stamps in the passport especially while I’m young. Whether you came across it professionally or in casual conversation are there any quotes that you live by?
- Rhonesha: “No one Ever Slows Her Agenda.” This phrase started as an acronym for my nickname, NESHA, however now its more than that. Its a motto that simply means, don’t take no for an answer, never give up on your goals or your dreams, and don’t sacrifice your dream for someone or something that ultimately doesn’t matter.
