Mara Brock Akil: TIME 100 Poll Nominee

By  | 

It’s that time of the year again! Time Magazine is shining light on leaders, artists, innovators, icons and heroes that are considered to be the most influential people in the world. Yes, the WORLD. I’m happy to announce that our very own fly female entrepreneur, the oh-so-lovely Mrs. Mara Brock Akil, is one of the nominees!

Many of you know Mara’s work from The Game and Girlfriends but did you know that she got her start as a writer for some of our favorite 90’s sitcoms like The Jamie Foxx Show and Moesha? In addition to all of her impressive work in the television industry, Mara is a loving wife and mother of two. As the ultimate fly female entrepreneur, Mara rocks many hats and should most definitely be applauded for all of her amazing talent!

I know we’re all busy but please take a moment to support Mara in this well-deserved nod for her contributions to Black America’s representation in the media. Voting closes on April 14th. Cast your vote TODAY by clicking here!


If you haven’t already done so, please pick up the Spring issue of Jones Magazine where I had the opportunity to interview the beautiful Mara Brock Akil!

As a New York City storyteller, filmmaker, digital content creator, and PR strategist, Renae Bluitt created "In Her Shoes" to empower and enlighten women committed to realizing their dreams.
