Miss A Columnist

Carmena Jarrett is a native of Atlanta. The middle daughter of immigrant parents, she always dreamed of being in the entertainment industry. It was while in high school she got the courage to write humorous anecdotes about the daily mundane life of teenage adolescence. After graduating, writing became more than a way of expression, it became love. She pursued a major in Journalism with a minor in African-American Studies at Georgia State University.
While there she earned an internship with Purple Ribbon Records, an Atlanta-based music label headed by Big Boi of hip-hop act Outkast. She quickly learned the behind-the-scenes basics of entertainment. Her BIG personality landed her projects with other artists and venues around the city working with musicians Killer Mike and Anthony David, as well as music venues Sugar Hill and 595 North Event Center. When she is not freelance writing you can find her compulsively shopping with friends and family, cooking, or doing Pilates.
