Quishauna A. McDougle
‘’It’s the fire in her eyes, and the flash of her teeth, the swing in her waist, and the joy in her feet. She’s a woman phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, that’s her.’’-- A poem written by Maya Angelou. If you ever met her, then you would understand why this is Quishauna’s favorite poem. The 22-year-old Entertainment mogul in the making exemplifies many things and being a phenomenal woman is one of them.

Quishauna knew at a young age she wanted to be someone important on T.V or on the Radio, and it all started at the age of four dancing in front of the T.V. screen to Michael Jackson ‘’That girl is mine.’’ Micheal Jackson is a big idol of Quishauna and was a catalyst to what she wanted to do. Growing up, Quishauna didn’t have a ''regular'' childhood. She matured alot quicker, due to her surroundings, environement, and her awarness at a young age. With the help of her mother, growing up she was raised by her Godmom and adopted an old soul, which explains her wisdom. During her childhood days she remembers coming home from school to watch Disney channel only if ''Thats so Raven'' or ''The Proud Family'' was on. But her favorite network to watch was BET and she would be tuned into 106 & park everyday at 6pm watching music videos, and tuning into all of the urban topics.
