Queens of Queen Media Collective

Hi! My name is Michaela P. Shelton. I am a Co-founder and the Executive Editor of Queen Media Collective. I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Journalism from San Jose State University and since then I have been building my portfolio writing and editing for various publications. I am the author of Reckless Behavior, a series of motivational, genuine and authentic lifestyle pieces and in 2019, I expanded my repertoire to include filmmaking. My critically acclaimed digital series, Reckless Behavior: The Series, was inspired by my blog and is loosely based on my life as a post college Black millennial living in the Bay Area.

My name is Imani Baylor and I am CoFounder and Creative Director of Queen Media Collective. I attended CSU East Bay and graduated with a B.A. in Sociology and minor in African American Studies. Although writing isn’t why I started QMC I wanted to give writers and other creatives a platform to share their stories. I provide styling and small businesses services to artists and creatives of all kinds. To learn more about my work follow me on Instagram @eccentric_vibes_online !

Hello, my name is Misha Frazier, 26. I am a published poet and Sexologist. I am a 2nd year human sexuality doctoral student at the California Institute of Integral Studies. I shift conversations and perspectives about sex, gender, identity, systemic oppression, and liberation by making scholarly material accessible to the general public through digital media and events.

Well hello Love,

I’m Akilah, and l call Los Angeles home. I’m an Artist. 

A master of many random thought in dramatic expressions of excitement through creativity. 

I am the founder of @thelbmoonshop, a inner child play community creating tangible tactile mindful conscientious healing FUN. This space was created for the healing of adults who experienced a wide range of childhood trauma and adversity by reconnecting with there inner child through playtime. 

I went to college and l have a degree but that’s not my biggest achievement. Not even close. My biggest achievements are the interactions and experiences I have on the daily basis through playing and communicating with others. 

I don’t spend my days working for a living.(i guess you can say i retired in 2020 from the Food and Beverage industry) I spend my days following what excites me the most cultivating ease for myself and those around me allowing me to live a life I’ve always dreamed of. Most of my very best work has been produced out of darkness: depression.

I’m a coparent to a beautiful Afro Latino. I love reading, Arts & Crafts, decadent bubble baths, traveling, exploring nature, taking pictures and daily walks. Most days you will find me writing, playing with my friends, going on an adventure with my son and painting with lots of glitter. 

Say hi✌🏽: @lively__bee

Hi I’m Enjali Lewis, author, creative writer, and poet.  I’ve always had a great appreciation for the arts music, literature, theater, poetry, fashion, etc.  My personal desire and inspiration to write came from reading black literature and growing up with the freedom to express myself in my youth.  I found my voice at a young age and was always highly encouraged to use it which is what still motivates me to write and create.  What started out as an outlet to help distract me from always overthinking turned into my passion to become an author, poet, and creative writer.  Being able to share that with others is not only therapeutic for me but also a great way to connect with people on many different levels.  I’m still growing and exploring my gifts as a writer but I’m excited to continue to share more of my journey and content with you all which can be found on queenmediacollective.com and more of my work and also be found on my Instagram @nubian_hair_collection.

My name is Donasia Harry. I am 21 years old, and I’ve been writing blogs for three years now. I specialize in confidence and black literature. Get to know me on Instagram @itsme.donasia.
