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

Hi Nakya, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
In my first stages of choosing to press and continue growing daily, One day my father told me to ask myself “What does success truly mean to me?Through life experiences and obedience, I understand success is beyond me. Considering the things that it takes to not only receive the plan but walk in the plan already purposed for my life. In other words, the most important factor behind my success is that I encourage the world every chance I get to want Jesus Christ in their lives. Living for God to get the glory out of their lives. Everything will flow leading the success in my brand many unique ways.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Hello my name is Nakya Westbrooks and I am a new entrepreneur . I am. the drummer for Kehlani and i’m also branching out into my own artistry. I’m excited to see where God is taking me in my life. I got where I am today professionally because attending Berklee College of Music I networked with some really good people. Although some days in college were not the best,I still pushed to continue working. Along the way, I’ve learned many lessons. To name a few, To always remember my why, understanding the importance of time Management, “Seed, time, and harvest.” I would like the world to know that I’ve been through things some people don”t make it out, and the Peace, love, and joy I have in what I do, you can discover yours too!

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?
One place i love to eat at in LA is Dace’s Hot Chicken. That place is a MUST have because It is just that good. I would definitely take my guest there. My first two times in LA was an unforgettable experience. I always wanted to see the Hollywood sign and the mountains. I say that to say, When my family and close friends come and visit I am almost certain we would check out sign from the mountains.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to everyone that not only shows love, but you support me in all your different ways. I love and appreciate you!
