I am an AT&T Influencer and I received compensation for this post. All opinions are my own.  Earlier this week I was making a late night scroll through my Facebook feed and saw a post from my friend Amber of TalktoAmber.com.

This post sponsored by Silkn. #HelloRadiance. All opinions are honest and based on my own experiences.

Thank you to AT&T for sponsoring my attendance to the 2016 NABJ Convention I recently returned from my first NABJ (National Association of Black Journalists) Convention.

I wish I could share everything that happened over the 5+ days of the conference, but this post will be way too long…
