Empress Simone is a member of the New York Association for Black Journalists. She hopes to network with those she admires in the journalism field and make valuable connections for a lifetime. Empress Simone’s mantra is “Power in the Pen,” and she has promised to dedicate her career as one who will use her words for the benefit of the community she holds dearly, ‘The black and Urban Community.” Speaking of which, you may find her magazine ‘Strictly for My People: An Urban Literary Magazine – The Rebirth Collection’ on magcloud.com along with the first SFMP issues published in 2016.
