A freelance writer, sales consultant and branding manager, Lakeia Brown wears many hats. It just depends on which one looks better with heels.

As a writer, she has penned countless articles for publications and websites including, O, The Oprah Magazine, Complex, The Recording Academy (Grammy’s), The Atlanta Journal Constitution, The Root, and Essence (she interviewed the incomparable Maya Angelou for the latter!).
