Joi-Marie McKenzie joins the Cool Soror Podcast today. A Cool Soror of Delta Sigma Theta, Sorority, Inc, this Baltimore native truly has a gift for the pen. As an entertainment and lifestyle writer for ABCNews.com, she has covered and interviewed many of your favorite celebrities. She admits, it is truly a dream job.
But there is certainly more to Joi-Marie than writing about other artists, when she is an artists herself. She decided to chronicle her memoir in real time as a then 28-year-old professional with a boyfriend who had not proposed. This witty, funny and impressive introspective look shows the lengths many women take to “get the ring” while losing themselves along the way. Cleverly written, Joe-Marie’s life mirrors many women and felt the need to share her truth.
She has several revelations in this book including bouts with depression and conformity that left her empty. She was able to pull herself out of these holes with the help of her mother – whom she lovingly talks about during this episode.
Joi-Marie McKenzie comes from a lineage of greatness and the trajectory of her life course is limitless. The book, “The Engagement Game” is only the beginning.
