You know how some people areÂ justÂ really cool toÂ have a conversationÂ with? Well let me tell you, Ameliaismore HostÂ fits the bill. Amelia is one ofÂ those deep sistersÂ who has aÂ sharp focus on life and a wisdom that defies anyÂ age. Amelia was gracious enough to grant me my very first official interview for Bronze. From the moment we spoke, I immediately feltÂ connected to her positive energy. Our conversationÂ felt more like a sister-to-sister chat than an interview.
With titles such as Entertainer, Journalist, VJ, Host, Model, and Public Speaker under her belt, Amelia most certainly lives up to her name.Â Owner of Buzz Builder, an entertainment media company, she has her pulse on the entertainment industry. She currently has Susan L. Taylor, Morgan Freeman, Danny Glover, Kurt Russell, Talib Kweli, DMX, Snoop Dogg and many more on her roster of interviews.
Amidst it all, Amelia findsÂ balance andÂ centeredness through her love of God. She is a faithful orator of God’s word and believes in setting the exampleÂ for walking in faith. She continues toÂ help people manifestÂ who they are spiritually and especially believes in giving backÂ “understanding” to teens through mentorship.
Amelia isÂ a strong advocate for the empowerment of women, believing that a woman should learn how toÂ define herself through self-reflection and self-healing. Currently, she isÂ the leadingÂ coordinator for theÂ Women of Strength Foundation, a NYCÂ based non-profit organization founded by Tashera Simmons, that serves as a vehicle of strength in helping women cope with abuse and abandonment. Amelia also has other projects in the worksÂ including a role as event planner for “Daddy’sÂ Daughter Dance”, an annual event sponsored by The RealÂ Guys Network, a support group thatÂ provides assistance to fathers.Â You can also find Amelia on the scene in the Flatiron District of NYCÂ as the host of the “Red Carpet” Celebrity Guest and VIPÂ interviewsÂ for Comedy Spillage, a comedy showcase featuring celebrity and up-and-comingÂ comedians.
For all that she has accomplished, Amelia remains diligently focused on achieving her goals. As for any odds she might face along the way Amelia states, “I will continue to move forward regardless, because I don’t walk in fear-I walk by faith.”Â Those are definitelyÂ words of wisdomÂ to live by.Â “Peace”
