Media Girls On Tour- Blogging Beauty Network- CIAA 2019 - Essence Sylvia Smith - Live FinESSe
It was truly a pleasure attending the Charlotte Media Girls on Tour: CIAA Edition. I am so happy that I was invited as VIP Media. This events was centered around “Recognizing Excellence in Influence”.
Media Girls on Tour is curated by The Blogging Beauties Network, which was founded by Jelisa Raquel. This successful tour has educated women in the areas of blogging, radio, print media, public relations, plus more by providing educational networking that features some of the most notable women in media. The tour travels to cities such as Atlanta, Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas, New York, and more!
Jelisa is a true testament of walking in your purpose and truly inspires me to keep going. She is able to juggle her many endeavors and this event was just another success that she can add to her growing list of achievements.
