We had the good fortune of connecting with Alieshia Nunnally and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alieshia, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind the success of my brand is representation, for a while I feel like a lot of my identities were not being seen or heard from in the media ( black, millennial, women) and I wanted to create my own narrative for us so thats why I created my podcast Millennial Thoughts and my travel blog AlieshiasAdventures. With these two brands I am showcasing and showing up being able to speak and share my experiences and also help other millennials, and black women aspire to share their voices as well.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I like to call myself a content creator but I am transitioning into becoming an writer. I started off sharing my experiences through blogging and podcasting since 2015 but I always loved to write songs, and make up stories that could one day turn into a book. I am still at the beginning of my career but to truly share my experiences and skills I am working on getting into screen writing and to hopefully see my name on some television show or short film credits soon. In life nothing is easy so you just have to try and find your path and I am still learning how to navigate adulthood and that is why I mostly talk about that on all my platforms. I want the world to know that if you have something you want to do at least try it once to say you did it. Speak up for yourself and create the life you want to you still have time.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
It is always a vibe when my friends come and visit me, first we would get brunch at Breakfast at Barneys, we would go shopping at the mall, then we would go to the botanical gardens and we would end the night skating.
Over the course of the week we would definitely go visit some Martin Luther King JR historical sites, go to the botanical garden and Krog Street Market & Tunnel.
We would go to Milk & Honey, Atl breakfast club but we would also have to go to Slutty Vegan, Harolds Chicken, and then try some mom and pop restaurants. We would go to Piedmont park to have a picnic or paint there. We would go to Cascade, the Trap Museum and go bowling at Atlantic Station. I think all this would take about a week to do. The most interesting places to check out or places with murals ( the art district) there are some exciting people down that way too.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My ancestors and my parents, with out my ancestors fighting right now it could almost be impossible to be in this position. I am thankful and grateful for my parents because they worked hard. They always encouraged and I was able to truly go after opportunities and seize the moment.
