The Interview

What made you get started in your industry?

I would watch BET, VH1 and various talk show hosts and say to myself, "self, you belong on tv!" I just knew I had what it took to get me started, so I went for it! 

I am a freelance model, actress and radio personality. I started modeling at the age of 15 with an underground Guyanese designer named Bugz! I am now an official print model for Moshood Creations, a Nigerian designer who had been in business for over 20 years in the Heart of Brooklyn! Modeling opened doors to acting and that led to doing radio!

#AfriMericans Feat Liz The IntnlDiva
My first independent film was in 2005 and I was recently featured in the movie Foreign Minds Think Alike by social media celebrity Maja Hype. I am currently a cast member of the highly anticipated digital series titled AfriMericans, a story about 2nd generation kids of African-Caribbean parents living the American dream.
 
Presently, I am the host of my own talk show called The IntnlDiva Show on My Star Radio and online radio platform which features interviews with rising stars, Community leaders and entrepreneurs in our local communities! I will be officially launching my media platform called DivaTV which aims to highlight people doing great things right in their communities! The platform will deliver authentic content on entertainment, politics, relationships, and more!

 

 

Walk us through the step-by-step process that you went through to get to where you are today. What was the first thing you did?

Funny you ask this question... I didn't really have a plan or a process I just went with the flow. I had moved to DC/Maryland in 2013 because I was so tired of NYC but there was nothing out there for me so I came back to NYC (I know right, lol). Anyway, long story short I met with like-minded friends and started hosting events that showcased talents with dreams like myself. Then I started doing comedic skits on social media from which I got casting roles in web series, tv commercials and more! I ultimately knew that I wanted to be a media correspondent and have my own TV show! So I got into radio as a talk show host and I'm currently contracted with some entertainment companies as a resident Host!

 

What do you consider are your specialty?

My specialty is engaging with people! I was blessed with the gift of connecting with people and I genuinely love to connect with great minds!

What was the best advice you every received and why?

You have to throw the net in the sea in order to catch the fish, but make sure you have the right bait!

 

What tips can you recommend that you’d would most likely only share with a close friend or comrade on success?

Do not allow the success of someone else's brand/business deter you from your journey. What God has for you will always be for you!

What do you think will be the next big change or shift in your industry? Building Bridges Through Comedy with Liz The IntnlDiva Quote

It's dog eat dog world out there, so a change or shift is inevitable. I think the next big change in my industry would be ministry! I feel like God has a higher purpose for me and that's to bring people closer to him! I can feel it!

 

If a young entrepreneur walked up to you asking for your advice and you only had a few minutes to give ‘em your best tip, what would it be?

Your dream has to be more than just "what if?" Your dream should be "what next?" And go for it!

 

How do you define a legacy and what are you doing right now to create one?
