12. Rakia Reynolds | CEO Skai Blue Media | "I built it brick by brick"
Rakia Reynolds is the founder & CEO of Skai Blue Media, a multimedia strategic communications firm based in Philadelphia and New York.
She began her career as a television producer, working at MTV, TLC and the Discovery Channel. She transitioned into the world of PR while pregnant and on unemployment, dusted herself off and became an “accidental entrepreneur” with the founding of Skai Blue Media. A decade later, it is clear that her non-traditional approach to PR and communications has changed the game.
Rakia and her team at Skai Blue Media work with powerhouses including Serena Williams, Ashley Graham and social activist Marley Dias and brands we love, include Dell, Comcast, Airbnb, and Planned Parenthood.
