We had the good fortune of connecting with KickinItWithTandA and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi KickinItWithTandA, can you tell us more about your background and the role it’s played in shaping who you are today?
Hey! We’re Kickin’ It With T & A, Tiffany & Adrianna! We’re born and raised in Macon, GA, the southside to be exact. Both were born to middle class working parents who taught us hard work goes a long way. Our parents instilled in us a hard work ethic at an early age. We had hard working fathers that taught us, no matter what life throws at you, be diligent, be dedicated, and be all in towards your craft. Our mothers taught us to face challenges head on while juggling career life and family life. They also taught us to remember our core values, which are rooted in Christ. Today we take those lessons and project them into our everyday lives and especially in our careers. It’s how we are able to manage a regular 9-5 and our entrepreneurships. Tiff is currently an Epidemiologist, Published Author, and a Youtuber/Influencer. Adrianna is currently working for a law office, has her own printing company and a Youtuber/Influencer. It’s a lot to manage but we do it with style and grace! We are legitimate blood cousins, lol, we get that question a lot. We have been friends since high school and that’s also when we found out we were actually related. We would hangout all the time, recording and making videos attending concerts and festivals so that’s when we decided to start our Youtube channel, “KickinItWithTandA”. Today we are beautiful, strong black women that encourage others to go for their dreams, no matter your age or how much of a challenge it may be. We encourage women and men to take care of themselves mentally, spiritually and physically. We encourage people to live their best lives and have fun while doing it!

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
KickinItWithTandA are cousins who love to travel, attend concerts, festivals, tour new restaurants, talk about social topics and hangout just like regular people. We simply decided to put a camera in front of us while we do it. We are most excited about sharing our experiences with the world so that they can enjoy it as well. It is not easy to vlog at all, sometimes you are tired from working on other things but you have to create content and push yourself to do it. We overcome that tiredness by making sure we give each other the time to rest, recuperate, and rejuvenate ourselves. Some lessons we have learned along the way would be to never stop, even if it seems no one is watching or paying attention keep going. We’ve also learned to simply have fun at whatever we do and put our best foot forward. That’s the authenticity that will be felt while watching a vlog or anything posted to our social media. KickinItWithTandA is literally like your favorite cousin that you’re waiting on to show up at the party or family reunion. It’s not live until they show up and that’s what we want you to feel when you’re Kickin’ It With T and A!

Outside of Kickin’ It With T and A, Tiffany is an Epidemiologist during the day and a published author by night. She published her very first book on her birthday, January 12, 2021. It is titled Chronicles of a Single Woman: Relationships, Friendships, Hustle, It’s available on Amazon and will soon be available at Barnes & Nobles. It’s a fictional story based on true events about the dating life and the modern era we date in where no one wants to title what they’re doing but call it a relationship. Check it out!

Outside of Kickin’ It With T and A, Adrianna works in a law office during the day and is an self-started entrepreneur by night. She has her own printing company, A & A Printing, LLC. She started her printing company in 2018, printing shirts, cops, mugs, pillows, etc. She also started her own clothing line, I Shall Be Great (ISBG) clothing line. It’s an inspirational line to remind yourself of the greatness within. Check it out!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
So we would definitely make sure we take them to Slutty Vegan, we absolutely love that place! We would also go to Fellaship, a dope cigar bar that’s really for the grown & sexy vibes. We’ll also hit VVS Lounge for good music and food. We have to take them to Blu Cantina for the wings and hookah. Then we’ll also go to Topgolf, the Puttshack, the Beltline, take them on an HBCU tour real quick because we are alum of HBCUs! We have to take them to see the OutKast Mural which is very beautiful. Take them to a Hawks game and down to Centennial Park.
