Antonice Jackson, president of the National Black Public Relations Society, Washington, D.C., Chapter (BPRS-DC) and founder and principal of Audacious Publicity and Management Group, a firm she founded in 2016 in Germantown, Md., has been named one of the Top 25 African American PR Millennials to Watch, states a post appearing in HuffPost.
According to the post, “Growing up in Michigan, Jackson learned early in life how to pick herself up from adversity. At 14 years old, her mother died in a tragic car accident, and it was the most difficult and challenging time for her and her family. “I lost a bit of my sanity,” she recalls. “I had to learn immediately how to grow up and how to keep going because when tragedy hits, the world stops for no one. But I was blessed to have the ability to remember the good lessons from my parents. My mother always reminded me to love and respect myself first, and my father always taught me and continues to tell me to be fearless in all I do because I have the power. My father has always pushed me to be better, even when we argued about it; and I love him for it.”
“A proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Jackson earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from Michigan State University and recently completed her Master of Public Relations and Corporate Communications from Georgetown University.”
