Chequelle Brown knew she wanted to work in the entertainment and media industries from a young age. Her first introduction to entertainment was singing in the choir and participating in church pageants. According to her, she would win every pageant she entered and loved to see her grandma beaming with pride in the audience. It wasn’t until she was seven that she would fall in love with singing. She would go on to act in church plays and give announcements, and host events in just the fifth grade.
Her first hosting event was at her elementary school talent show with her principal. This Macon, Georgia native was inspired to join the media and entertainment industries after watching LaLa Anthony on TRL, Free, AJ, Terrence and Rocsi on 106 & Park, and Oprah. In high school she participated in anything she felt would boost her confidence or pose a challenge from chorus to cheerleading. In 2010, she graduated from high school and moved to Columbus, Georgia for college. In 2014, she graduated from Columbus State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Media and Journalism. Post-graduation, she began hosting a podcast called “Real Talk with Chequelle,” and started working as a freelance journalist for different media publications. The 28-year-old said, “Hosting a podcast really gave me a voice and the courage that I needed to showcase my talents.” She has previously worked as an event coordinator and had a stint in mainstream radio. In December 2018, she moved to the Charlotte area after being accepted into the master’s program at Queens University of Charlotte. Now, she is in her final semester of getting her Master of Arts in Communication. Chequelle seems to have a long road ahead full of opportunities to share her talents with the world. We look forward to seeing what lies ahead for Chequelle.
