ESSENCE is excited to introduce our first new video series for 2018, The Boss Lady Project, sponsored by FORD.
Each week, we will pair a young woman who aspires to pursue a career in a certain industry, with an accomplished woman who works in that industry.
For the first episode, New York radio personality Angela Yee of Power 105.1's "The Breakfast Club" takes 14-year-old Kanice Parlor behind the scenes to walk her through a day-in-the-life as a host of the award-winning morning radio show. Angela and Kanice then sit down in the studio for a quick chat about what it really takes to build a successful career in radio, the importance of representation, why challenges are really just opportunities in disguise and much more.
Watch the episode in full above and be sure to check back each week for new episodes of The Boss Lady Project.
