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 adore a good hustle and I root for everyone that is currently trying to make something out of their selves. I’m taking it upon myself to create my own platform to show the many people in my predicament that it is okay to struggle for a bit, as long as you figure out your purpose.

RakiyaG.com will include personal essays centered around everyday life, and will also show how hard people grind for what they are passionate about. I want the world to see that anything is possible, as long as you work hard for it. A degree isn’t everything; in some cases it doesn’t even help. I want to show off everyone’s path and show my growth as an individual and possible entrepreneur as well.
