Meet & Greet with Aliya S. King
Yesterday evening I got the pleasure of attending a meet & greet with the famed and freckled freelance journalist Aliya S. King. She came to Baltimore, MD and invited established as well as up and coming journalist like myself to her hotel room for an intimate meet & greet event. King is very down to earth individual. While wearing a pair of signature peach pumps she gave us, 20 or so people, some of the real deal facts about the industry and good advice on how you can make it as an African American in the field. Her personality was just as big as her beautiful natural and flamboyant curly bush. She allowed us to even sit on her bed. How more intimate can you get?
Aliya S. King has written for The Source, Vibe, XXL, and Essence just to name a few place. She came to Baltimore to participate in conference held by the National Association of Marketing Development in the Tremont hotel downtown. While there, she hosted a seminar on using media.
