KIA, CEO of Kickin It Productions
Born and raised in the Bedford Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn, NY, Shakia dedicates her life to telling unheard stories. Her educational background (BA in Communication Arts & Sociology) coupled with time spent abroad (Guatemala, Pacific Islands) has informed her worldview. Years working on the ground in urban communities (Girls Inc, Teen Challenge, 808 Urban) fuels her passion for equal representation of BIPOC in digital media.
Renaissance artists, such as Langston Hughes and great black authors/sociologists like Delores Williams and Toni Morrison, inform her writing style. She aspires to be as raw and relevant as authors such as, Jasmine Mans and Candice Carty-Williams.
Currently, she resides in Los Angeles where she operates her own Digital Media Agency/Book Publication Company. Kickin it Productions LLC is a one-stop media agency for all your brand's needs. Recently, she's founded the non-profit organization Sisters With Stories Inc. We provide scholarships, free-educational workshops, and sponsor an internship program. We try our best to support urban youth that are interested in learning more about marketing and mass media.
