This past Saturday, I debuted my new radio broadcast, Prosey’s Corner; sponsored by 4E Media Group and The United States of Her, headed by Valerie Denise Jones and Phillip Anthony aka Phelo the Great. I want to send a HUGE THANKS to both Valerie and Phillip for giving me this phenomenal opportunity.
It was a great learning experience, and we should only become more adept at conducting the broadcast every Saturday from this point forward. This new platform will catapult Mara Prose Publishing into an industry I had not originally envisioned.
Of course, I had to bring along my literary agent, Mara Prose manager and jack of all trades Nicky W. aka best friend since 5th grade as my co-host. There is nothing better than having someone who you love and trust along for the ride. I need to send a huge THANK YOU her way for fearlessly jumping right in with me and for all her support!
My first guest was none other than Nate Campbell, a boxing legend: His legacy began at the age of 24-year; a warehouse worker at Winn-Dixie, father of three, shadowboxes during his breaks and is encouraged by his co-workers to try boxing. He then goes on to win world titles and, over the course of a ten year career, appear on every major TV boxing outlet and coined The Galaxxy Warrior.
If you recall, Nate was kind enough to allow me to have my first network experience on his show Experience the Galaxxy with Nate Campbell. And I was very honored that he agreed to be my first guest on such a short notice.

Yet young adult African Americans, especially those with higher levels of education, are less likely to seek mental health services than their White counterparts, according to a study published by the American Psychological Association.
