Kendra Daye on Why She Bet on Herself

On our Season 2 finale, hear the executive assistant's refreshing take on her career so far

Don't sleep on executive assistant Kendra Daye, y'all. She has a lot to say. With just a few years under her belt, she is already a driving force and a new-business asset to her agency. This week on the season finale of #BlackTea, we chat about the challenging transition from finance to advertising. The theme: determination with a little help from the universe. "But what if you never tried?" We talk about the joy in figuring out what you want in your career path—emphasis on path—how game-changing it is to have upper management pour into you, and how the Black Renaissance moment is so freeing for a direct Black woman in the workplace. Plus, hear her dream Black woman party-of-five brunch. Watch, share and enjoy this final steep of Black Tea for a while. See you next season!

Black Tea is a video series that exists to make the independent voices of our fellow Black adwomen louder in the industry.

Note: We do not currently take interviewee nominations or recommendations from agencies or third parties.
