The Cool Soror Podcast welcomes Jessica Wilkins to the show. A Cool Soror of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Jessica hit the ground running in Brooklyn, New York with $500 and an extreme desire to make it in the fashion industry. Now a writer and fashion blogger for her own very popular site, www.notcarriebradshaw.com, she has found her voice.
Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Jessica used her Southwest Atlanta approach to life to continue to push through even when the odds were stacked against her. Being a Black woman in fashion, she learned early that not everyone is going to like you. An internship at Oscar De La Renta taught her that very quickly. She wanted to give up. A much needed push from her mother confirmed her belief that she needed to stay the course.
Jessica calls herself three things: Wordsmith, Fashion Storyteller and Social Enthusiast. Her posts on her website will make you laugh, cry and think about a myriad of topics. Her gift is truly in her ability to deliver witty and thought provoking pieces that give the reader a different approach to understanding. Jessica’s comedic timing is never late. She is truly joyous.
She is a woman who is continuing to discover new things about the life she is living, but more importantly she is discovering who she is supposed to be in it. One thing is for sure, she is “Not Carrie Bradshaw” because Jessica is more than enough.
