Shakira Ellis was born and raised in Detroit Michigan. She is a graduate of Michigan State University and Wayne State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and a Master of Arts degree in Film respectively. Her passion for Detroit and inner cities like it stems from the resurgence that she has witnessed and been a part of in Detroit for the last several years. With over 10 years of media experience, that includes public relations, radio, print journalism and film, Shakira plans to use her expertise to bring awareness to the revitalization happening in Detroit and other cities like it across the U.S. in hopes of “Changing the Conversation” and society’s perception of inner cities and the people who live there.
