Hey Girl Hey

My name is Briana Melissa Ford. I’m a writer of all things wordy, an influencer via social media, and a Shero taking over the world. I’m a book nerd, musical old soul, and a Gladiator who loves to LOL. I leverage technology, training, and the art of storytelling to help young women of color to embrace their bona fide selves. So grab your shades & flip flops, and let’s live boldly!


Who do you think you are? Who do your loved ones know you to be? If you don’t know, I help you figure it out. If you do, I challenge you to embrace it.


With the career jumpstart, I give you the tools to help you land a job, become a stand out employee, or launch your own business and become a real #boss.


From letting your true self shine on social media, to showing you the ins and outs of creating your own blog, I help you thrive in a digital lifestyle.
