#GirlBoss Life: Karen Civil

“In a saturated market filled with insta-famous personalities, I find it refreshing when I come across genuine authenticity in a brand, person or project. No stranger to this brand, I fully committed to be inspired by a young media mogul. Just days away from her 31st birthday, Karen Civil was set to publish a four chapter handbook to help inspire fans to live their best life. Living by her own mantra, “Live Civil & Be You” is intended for readers to scribble along the inseam, jot notes and write personal aspirations. Karen’s gift to us on her birthday was to inspire, uplift and motivate…exactly what young entrepreneurs need. Along the two-day journey I witnessed a young woman determined, playful and despite what one would think, sophisticatedly unaffected by her fame. Karen Civil confirmed that honestly being true to yourself is the golden ticket to your ultimate success.”- Marjoriet Matute of The Real Urban Classy

I had the opportunity to follow Karen Civil on a two day press run of her new book along with my good friend Marjoriet. We were all over manhattan, making stops at Hot97, BET, Ink’d, Facebook, & many more. Karen is a machine. Read the full recap on our two days here!!

Summer Jam ’15

My first time at NYC Summer Jam was two years ago and I had a great time meeting artist back stage and getting exclusive shots. But this year, my guy Jeff, gave me the opportunity to shoot with some of the best photographers in NY and for Hot97. This time around, I wouldn’t be backstage, stuck in a room but actually able to enjoy the show.

Since I don’t drive, I took the Hot97 Staff bus super super early in the AM. Being one of the first people there, I got to witness somethings most do. As I walked around an nearly empty MetLife Stadium i was able to watch a few sound checks.
