Born and bred in New York City just steps away from Lincoln Center, it was inevitable that arts and entertainment would be instilled in Raven from the start. Taking after her mother, a professional Thai classical dancer, Raven started dancing and acting at the age of four. By the age of eighteen, Raven had already performed all over Europe and Asia; she even had the privilege of performing for his holiness, the Dalai Lama. After interning at WQHT Hot 97 in New York City, her senior year in high school, she discovered her penchant for radio broadcasting, but even more so, her knack for interviewing. She attended Syracuse University, studied communications and music industry, and worked at the student-run radio station WJPZ, 89.1 FM as an on-air personality while in college. Upon her return to New York City, Raven worked for WPLJ 95.5 FM and became a member of Dirty Feet Productions, where she acted in a handful of off-Broadway plays and short films; one of which won the Downtown Film Festival. Raven has served as a video content producer for various online publications, such as XXL, Global Grind, and AllHipHop.com. She also served as the content producer for the annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival for three consecutive years. Raven currently hosts a weekly radio segment called Hip-Hop Queenz, on the world syndicated radio show And You Don’t Stop Radio, alongside Public Enemy’s Chuck D, which airs on 99.5 FM, WBAI.
In virtually every role Raven has ever taken, she either created it herself or made it uniquely her own. There is something very special about paving your own way; each experience is a stepping stone closer to living your passion. The hustle never stops, but that is where the fruit is.
