Verizon presents: “The Big Payoff NYC”

Project Description

On Friday, May 15th, I was invited to attend “The Big Payoff NYC” presented by Verizon Wireless as VIP Press featuring Vin Keatin, Syesha Mercado, Dj KayB, and Melanie Fiona, was held at  Madiba Harlem at MY IMAGE STUDIOS (MIST). Verizon had an ongoing nationwide 2015 “Potential of Us” City Session program. The event also included an open forum panel led by NBC Apprentice finalist & MSNBC commentator, Kwame Jackson; Live Events Coordinator at Essence, Michelle Nance; CEO & Founder of Mama Foundation of the Arts , Vy Higginsen; Founder & Publisher of Abernathy Magazine, and Willie Jackson; Cast member in Youtube Web-series “Triangle”, Ryan Cross; CEO & Founder of Katalyst Live, Haithem Elembaby; Director of Publicity for the Entertainment Communications division of CBS Television Network, Noelle Llewellyn; Producer, Writer & Musician, Anthony “RoseGold” de La Rosa.

The Potential of Us campaign began during Black History Month and was created to empower the African American community to leverage technology in pursuit of their passion and to take hold of their futures. One of the taglines of the program is, “Don’t just celebrate history. Create it.” With the idea of empowering the black community in mind, according to blogs like Divas and Dorks, “Verizon brought together some of the most influential personalities in the entertainment industry to share insights on building a lucrative career by tapping into one’s genuine interests.”
