More about Rahkal

MORE ABOUT RAHKAL 

Sometimes, numbers do lie! Statistics say children who are raised in domestically violent homes and/or homes filled with substance abuse and poverty are less likely to succeed and more likely to become products of their environment. These are my statistics, but this isn't my story. I firmly believe in dreaming bigger, living on purpose, owning your narrative, and that your past doesn't have to dictate your future.

 

Born to a 19-year-old heroin and cocaine addict on the rough South Side of Chicago, raised in poverty, drugs, domestic violence, and fatherless, resilience and overcoming adversities is my middle name. Humble beginnings drive my desire to advocate for women of color and marginalized individuals. 

 

As a first-gen college grad and champion for emotional wellness, I am passionate about helping individuals thrive personally and professionally while obtaining workplace peace.  

 

I am the CEO of Be The Inspired You, a personal and professional development brand. In addition to 1-on-1 coaching, I work with organizations and individuals to develop talent and break free of self-imposed restrictions while cultivating harmony and strategy to live more significantly. My mission is to serve, inspire, and help individuals confidently identify, own, and live out their God-given purpose. With over a decade of professional experience, I've worked for conglomerates, including CNN, Warner Media (formerly Turner Broadcasting System Inc.), iHeartMedia (formerly Clear Channel Communications), and Fox Chicago News. 

 

I am a proud HBCU alum with a Master's in Media Communications and Training from Governors State University and a Bachelor's in Radio/TV/Film from Texas Southern University.

 

I love to blog about my faith in Jesus Christ, being a newlywed, and professional development strategies.
