About Me: Deja Monee
I'm Deja Monee, a Public Relations (PR) Specialist. I’m also known as a publicist, PR Girl, and my personal favorite, “the plug”. I hate to burst your bubble, but PR is not what you've seen on TV. No shade to Samantha from Sex & the City or Olivia Pope from Scandal, but PR is not glamorous. There are some cool perks, but brand livelihoods and reputations are at stake.
As a way to sum up the site, it is all about helping you become the media magnet you were destined to be. If you’re a business owner looking to step up your PR game, you've come to the right place.
I got my start in the communications industry as a journalist, but transitioned into the PR industry after taking on an internship at a PR firm in college. My foundation in journalism has given me a great advantage because I am able to leverage my previous relationships in journalism to maximize exposure for my clients. Since I've been on the other side, I know first hand what peaks the media's interest.
Over the past few years, I've represented clients in various industries including beauty, fashion, entertainment, alcohol, and technology. I've secured media placements in The Examiner, Madame Noire, Philly.com, The Daily News, Kontrol Magazine, Fast Company, Buzzfeed and more.
I earned a B.A. in Mass Media Arts from Clark Atlanta University and a M.A. in Professional Business Communication from La Salle University.
When I’m not working with clients, mentoring young professionals, or writing, you can catch me brunching, exploring NYC, and searching for the perfect matte lipstick.
