We had the good fortune of connecting with Neema Skye and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Neema, how do you think about risk?
Taking risk are important especially when it comes to your career. In order to measure the weight of your talent it’s important to put your self in positions that force you to become your best. Never taking chances and staying on the same level keeps you comfortable and stagnant. Risk show you what your made of and it helps you build character. So no matter what is thrown your way, you can withstand anything and position yourself to become one of the greatest
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Starting in the entertainment industry my goal was to become a professional dancer and after a small injury, I learned that I had to become a Boss of my talent. I was forced to find my talent for entrepreneurship and begin creating avenues that allowed me to start my creative niches with hosting, being a beauty influencer, and creating my content. I learned that in order to control the impact that you want to have within your industry you have to create a platform that people can follow and support. My greatest challenge was learning how to stand out amongst a crowd that seem oversaurated, but I learned over the years that being authentic is a great asset that works in your favor when you truly believe in yourself. It almost sounds cliche but it’s true. Once I begin pealing back the layers of what I loved and understood what made me who. I am, I created my brand. Being a host truly comes from my desire to inspire, entertain and educate. I created ” All that talk with Neema Skye” to inform people about what’s happening in the culture, information is important but education is everything. I also want to inspire people to be authentically themselves in every capacity, and share some insightful things that will help them in their day to day from beauty, fashion, media to life, it’s all relevant. Aside from entertainment, my dream was to create a product that I owned doing what I loved, make up. N.Skye Beauty came from me tapping into my creative ability to do makeup and allow people see themselves as beautiful. I started out as an artist and then transitioned into a beauty influencer, it was another talent that I discovered and understood the importance that it has in our society . In addition to having these two platforms I am constantly developing projects that allow me to tell stories of our culture through music, film and soon i television. My ultimate goal is to contribute leaving a positive impact on the culture through all forms of media and entertainment.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Visiting LA is always the best time to show off your hospitality skills. The best of the best. I would first take them to my favorite rooftop brunch at Mama Shelter that overlooks LA, then I would take them to site see some exhibits at my favorite museum on Wilshire, the walk of fame. Madam, Trusuard’s. DTLA is a must stop so I would take the to joeys to eat them go to LA live and of course the Santee Alley. Then for the night life I would take them to dinner at EPLP. Sunday we would take a hike at Temescal and eat a good lunch at Malibu Seafood.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
