5 Things About Andréa:
She is the Editor-in-Chief and Publisher, of Sesi Magazine, which she describes as “Covering the Black Girl’s Mainstream.” The magazine launched in 2008 and re-launched with consistent quarterly print publication in 2012.
She has assembled a whole team of black women who are also dedicated to making sure black girls can enjoy media that addresses them directly and not as a side dish. She has cover features from the young black celebs that black teens recognize and covers a range of topics, thus avoiding the typical teen mag tendency to over-index on articles on looks and sex.
Andrea is a former teacher and is an alumna of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and and Kent State University.
She has some good advice for to-be-entrepreneurs in this profile on her a few years ago on aftercollege.com.
