Karina Young is a contributing writer for Blavity and Been Worthy Media with a focus on home & texture and entertainment and culture. She considers herself a media maven as she is a former radio personality, host, and loves to create content. Through her journey, she has learned and lived that everything meant for you, will not pass you by. Her love for storytelling has grown in a way that has allowed her to share her story and the story of others, so much that during the start of the pandemic, she created her own platform on IGTV. When she isn't storytelling, you can catch her brunching with her girls, traveling, and loving on her family. Keep up with her work here and on all social media platforms @itskarinay!
