About Rakiya G
Jersey City native who attended Dr. Ronald E. McNair Academic High School. Attended Rider University in 2010 and graduated in 2014, majoring in Journalism and minoring in Television & Radio.
I love to write, I love to create and have something accessible to the world for people to see. I have a profound love for my culture, and over the past year, I’ve seen a serious need to shed light on certain topics. Black culture, is rich and embedded with history and significant meaning.
I’m taking it upon myself to create my own platform to show people why our culture is important, often misconstrued, and always relevant.
RakiyaG.com will include personal essays centered around everyday life, and will also show series dedicated to Black culture. I want the world to see how beautiful our culture is and understand that it is not simply skin deep. We are important.
