Shayla Reaves: Her Authentic Self!

“For some reason, people say that they want to talk to me. They say that if they have to hear bad news, they want to hear it from me.” – Shayla Reaves

Shayla Reaves is an Emmy award-winning creative who loves to craft, realizing her professional dreams anchoring the noon newscast at WCCO! Join us in this segment to talk about Black women, the barriers and the pathways to being our authentic selves, and resisting the temptation to fit our whole selves into ‘the box’!

Warning: Her energy is contagious and transcends small screens and radio airwaves! Once you listen to her segment, you’ll want to talk to her too!

“If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.” – Audre
