    I AM  a song creator, inspirational writer/speaker, good food cooker, lipstick wearer… a girl from the projects who decided NOT to settle. I'm a believer- in God, in dreams, in love, and in hustle with heart. I love leading conversations about what matters most.

    My credo: “I used to hate my life--- AND now I freaking love it created a whole new life and career for me.

    I started saying that before I even believed it.  It all started as a personal challenge to get my entire life together (AKA: overcome some very difficult childhood stuff,) but has turned into an opportunity to help others to do the same. 

    My philosophy is that you should never settle. Like, ever. And, if you chose NOT to settle but to pursue something you freaking love, the process (however difficult) that it will take you to get it, will be worth it

    Where it all started…

    I was born to teenage parents who were no longer a couple at the time of my birth. I was raised in public housing (the projects) by my paternal grandmother (Sweet Madis). Basically, I was exposed to promiscuity, violence, and drug and alcohol abuse.  I saw the vicious cycle that some of my closest friends and family had fallen victim to, and wanted no part of it. At the age of ten I did something that changed the course of my life. I made a promise, to myself, to do whatever it took to create a life that was as far away from the one I had been living as possible.

    I struggled.  I succeeded. I struggled. I succeeded. My life is a testament of God’s grace and love.

    In short, I graduated high school + started my first business [Makeup by Nakeia] + earned a degree in Psychology from Rutgers State University + started speaking to at risk teens and adults + worked as a social worker and in various human services positions for 15 years + met my husband + started writings songs + became a mom + started mentoring women. 

     

    As a creative entrepreneur, I am blessed to have a career as a songwriter and music publisher (Sara's Daughter Music Publishing, ASCAP.) I have worked with gospel greats, R&B legends, boy bands... and my work has graced the Billboard Charts, as well as albums that were nominated for Grammy's.

    I also get to share my message of not settling and pursuing what you love as speaker, inspirational writer, mentor, through my video series [Nakeia TV], and at my LOVE YOUR LIFE MORE events. I've published articles with some amazing online magazines and was recently invited by at my alma mater to speak to Social Workers, and other Human Service Professionals, about how to better reach at risk youth and young adults.

    Hey, I told you I was multi-passionate.

    The loving truth…

    You can’t get to where you want to be in life, if you are focused on where you don’t want to be. You can't have a life you really genuinely love, if you settle for all of the things you don’t (love.)

    I’ve learned that it is okay to want more, dream big, and do exceptional things--- NO MATTER WHAT!  I am who God created me to be and nothing less.  So are you. I am committed to teaching what I've learned, showing you how I get stuff done, and sharing my struggles and my successes in a way that will help you get more of what you love in your life.  

    If you are tired of settling for less than you deserve, Hey, Love... I dare you to settle no more.
