Miss A Columnist

I am a WHO DAT LOUISIANA transplant dwelling in the Big D and I can be described as a vogue-a-holic by default, a socialite by nature, and a shoe-preneur by trade. I delight in the unexpected, have a tongue in cheek approach to tradition, never wear just anything, miscellaneous is my favorite category, and lastly – am spoiled by all things fabulous and swanky. I absolutely love the Big D because there is always a wide array of people, places, and things to experience.

Miss A has a presence in 21 U.S. markets, and is the first and leading media outlet covering the intersection of charity and life. With a team of 30 editors and hundreds of writers, we write about charity meeting a part of life – fashion, beauty, sports & fitness, home, food, kids, men, entertainment, business, technology, travel, and education. We shine a spotlight on the best nonprofits, cause marketing products and services, corporate philanthropy and philanthropic people to inspire others to give as they live. Since so much of the Arts are supported by philanthropy, we love covering the arts – performing arts, music, dance, theatre and film.

Founded in 2008 by Andrea Rodgers who has a strong philanthropic track record of her own in Washington, DC, Miss A believes in the positive power of volunteering and charity — not only to benefit those less fortunate, but to improve the individual, business or brand that gives their time, talent and treasure to a cause. Our mission is to shine a spotlight on the best charity events, cause marketing campaigns, philanthropic people, businesses and brands to inspire others to get involved.

With this said, if you have an event you would love for me to cover on Miss A, please contact me at pamreneepr@yahoo.com.

Simply Grace House, is a positive, organized and safe residential community for those facing the challenges of recovery, providing a safe, supportive and structured living environment.  Sober for more than 16 years after a long battle with alcohol and drug addiction, Anika Cooper founded Simply Grace as part of her desire to begin a new life and stay free of alcohol and drugs. Simply Grace helps recovering addicts get on their feet and acquire the skills and emotional support they need to integrate back into society and begin a fresh start. Anika remembers the experiences, opportunities and lessons that changed her life while she was in transitional housing, and Simply Grace is her way of giving back.
