She Inspired Her Spotlight: Kelsey Nicole Nelson - Award Winning Broadcast Journalist for FOX Sports

Kelsey N. Nelson is an Award-winning Broadcast Journalist for Washington, D.C-based radio station FOX Sports 96.9 FM/1340 AM ("Listen In With KNN"), an accomplished Courtside Reporter for the popular Big East basketball, a CSN/SB Nation credentialed Journalist, coupled alongside being a credited WNBA Washington Mystics Courtside Analyst.

Nelson is a Georgetown University Alumnus where she graduated with her MPS degree in Sports Industry Management with a concentration in Digital Media, Strategic Marketing and Communications.

The multi-talented Maryland native - who was officially invited as a guest of honor to the White House - is a graduate of the University of Maryland-College Park and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism from the Philip Merrill College of Journalism and a certificate in African-American studies. 

Nelson was mentored by New Jersey-born Award-winning Connecticut-based Broadcast Journalist/Reporter Michael T. Lyle, Jr.

The amiable Broadcast Journalist/Reporter is a native of Montgomery County, MD and a Clarksburg High School alumnus. Nelson's appearances at the White House came via the 2015 Minnesota Lynx WNBA championship ceremony and the 2016 Chicago Cubs World Series championship ceremony. 

This prodigious ever-rising 25-year-old "Listen In With KNN" Broadcast Journalist has also officially served as a Reporter for Laurel TV, The Roundball Report, Sideline/Multimedia Reporter for HSRN and Washington D.C. Metro Area Broadcast Media.

Nelson also claimed the distinct honor of claiming the Ms. Maryland African-American 2015 title.

In addition to success in the world of media and communications, Kelsey N. Nelson has embarked on a positive series of community-related philanthropy projects which give back, inspire and empower lives such as Nelson's non-profit organization with fellow University of Maryland-College Park students and alumni entitled "Books Breaking Borders: Books to End Educational Bankruptcy, which ensures that Nelson's impactful and unique voice is heard beyond just a microphone.

Relating to Nelson's charitable initiative "Books Breaking Borders: Books to End Educational Bankruptcy", the Marylander's ultimate goal is to essentially reduce illiteracy rates amongst minority children, thus ensuring that the United States polarizing educational system leaves no child behind. However, since the inception of FOX Sports Radio 96.9/1340 AM's popular show "Listen In With KNN", hosted by Nelson, the Maryland-born presenter has upped the ante vociferously. 

Nelson has embraced stepping out of a comfort zone, admittedly basketball, football and baseball into a once unfamiliar territory with great transition and ease, notably discussing global sports trending topics and matters on "Listen In With KNN" such as the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 fiasco and Manchester City's 2017-2018 one-sided domination in the English Premier League. "Listen In With KNN" is an honest, insightful and refreshing Professional Sports talk show underpinned from a female's perspective.

"Listen In With KNN" has warmly welcomed a marquee litany of diverse celebrity special guests throughout the DMV area, as well as noteworthy superstars across the United States and internationally with a who's who including: Big Baller Brand CEO LaVar Ball, "Rutten and Ranallo" co-host/UFC Hall of Famer/CBS "Kevin Can Wait" Actor Bas Rutten, coupled alongside forthcoming must-listen "Listen In With KNN" appearances from E! television star of "WAGS of Atlanta" and Ring of Honor sensation Brandi Rhodes, 6-time Women's Professional Boxing Champion and Combate Americas superstar Amanda "The Real Deal" Serrano and ESPN's Jay Harris.

This summer, Nelson's FIFA World Cup 2018 Kick-Off Show takes over "Listen In With KNN" and guarantees special guest appearances, including FOX Sports Soccer Analyst and U.S soccer legend, Cobi Jones.

Heralded "Listen In With KNN" segment "Doing Good" richly celebrates inspirational and unsung heroes within the community in Washington, D.C and around the entire world who are motivating, uplifting and inspiring others in deeds, words and ethos to create a better community and brighter tomorrow.

Kelsey N. Nelson recently hosted the successful charity event Crawfish for Cancer: 6th Annual DC Bowl in Washington, D.C. The much-awaited Crawfish for Cancer: 6th Annual DC Bowl event emanated live on-air in conjunction with FOX Sports Radio 96.9 FM/1340 AM.

Since the very successful inception of "Listen In With KNN", the unique D.C-based show has steadily grown and reached international markets such as the United Kingdom, Canada and across Europe with a positive mission statement of FOX Sports 96.9FM/1340 AM's "Listen In With KNN" to strategically connect and resonate with global audiences in the Latin Americas, Middle East, Asia as well as South America and the rest of the world.

"Listen In With KNN" is a self-funded project without any form of monetary assistance or publics grants nor funds from hierarchy in Washington, D.C.

"Listen In With KNN" has seemingly gone beyond the call of duty and has labored very arduously in order to consistently serve listeners with a highly polished and pristinely packed presentation which inspires and informs.

"Listen In With KNN" continues to forge its unique identity as well evolving and growing to interact with more unique listeners around the entire globe, whereas "Listen In With KNN" has tackled hard-hitting subject matters, while producing original stories which separates the show from other programming within the contemporary sports media market.

All "Listen In With KNN" episodes are currently available to listen to on iTunes and Google Play, whereas Nelson's show has since announced an official sponsor - Nevada-based sports bet company Doc Sports.

The irrepressible and united quintet of Kelsey N. Nelson, Glenwood Thomas, Michael T. Lyle Jr, Dean Perretta and Quintin Green have worked with excellent solidarity, cohesive togetherness and consummate second to none professional understanding to further establish "Listen In With KNN" not only in the Greater D.C Area, but around the entire globe.

Kelsey N. Nelson's chief goal is for "Listen In With KNN" to go live daily and the foundation transpiring currently is no pipe dream, fallacy nor propaganda to self-serve one's ego or brand. "Listen In With KNN" has rock solid structure, ever-growing consistency and disciplined project management in order to not become generically one of many nor lost in the shuffle. 

Nelson has invariably and firmly kept her feet on the ground and avoided the pitfalls of believing her own hype, which often plagues many young Broadcast Journalists and Reporters within an industry which piles false praise in order for mindgames, reduced progression, productivity and performance.

"Listen In With KNN" guarantees to continue to connect with avid listeners of all backgrounds courtesy of its ever-growing diversity and wealthily consistent content which efficiently fires on all cylinders on a weekly basis.

Above all else, Nelson's ultimate goal is to become the first-ever African-American female sports Broadcast Journalist in the DMV area to host a live sports radio show.

Why Curls LOVE Urban Therapy's Twisted Sista (Hair Product Review)


So this year She Inspired Her were proud to announce that we were Official Media Sponsors for Beauty in Dubai 2018 – a professional networking retreat to Dubai, United Arab Emirates for beauty and wellness professionals, bloggers, influencers and beauty enthusiasts! 

UK based hair company Urban Therapy's Twisted Sista creators of the amazing, newly launched  'Clear and Nourish' range for curly,  coily and afro hair textures, were also sponsors of the 5-Day Programme in Dubai. Attending guests received Twisted Sista goodybags (which doubled up as handy summer beach bags) and were thrilled to have a product with them out in Dubai that would control the frizz and keep their curls bouncing day by day, even on the hottest days in Dubai!


Of course, our super duper curly haired blogger Carmencita McFarlane just couldn’t WAIT to rip open her special 'Beauty in Dubai Treat Box' specially for bloggers, with a selected range of Twisted Sista products, and to get up-close and personal with these outstanding, clear packaged Twisted Sista products and try them out on her curly locks! Seriously, the team here at She Inspired Her couldn’t wait to find out what she thought! 

Here is her much anticipated review:

Why my curls love Twisted Sista by Carmencita McFarlane

First of all, I was so excited to receive my Beauty in Dubai Treat Box in the post and couldn’t wait to get it open! Once I opened it up and saw all the amazing Twisted Sista products inside, let's just say that wash day HAD had to come a little sooner than planned!

At first glance I was so impressed with how Twisted Sista had packaged their newly launched Clear and Nourish products range. They were very elegant and appealing, I had never used, or even seen, clear/transparent shampoo and conditioner bottles before and that was only the beginning!

So, as I said I scheduled an early wash day JUST for Twisted Sista! The shampoo and conditioner were so easy to use because the bottle design ensured that I never had trouble with over pouring or having to squeeze extremely hard just to get the product out, and then there was the smell…. OH MY! It had a natural scent with a sweet kick and felt so smooth and hydrating.



My Step by step Shampoo and Conditioner Routine:


1) I wet my hair then applied the TwistedSista Clear and Nourish 'Pure Treatment Shampoo' with Seaberry and Mangosteen ("yummy" said the hair). I massaged it into my curly locks from roots to tips and worked it in for about 3-5 minutes.


2) I then rinsed out the product completely with water and my hair already felt so richly nourished!


3) I then applied Twisted Sista Clear & Nourish 'Pure Hydration Conditioner' with seaberry and mangosteen (you have to smell this stuff, honestly... juicy), which once applied made my hair feel like SILK and so much easier to de-tangle. I used a wide toothed comb to de-tangle my hair. (Special Tip: always start at the tips to avoid and minimise breakage)!

4) Once completed I let my hair air dry and can honestly say the smell and look of my hair was absolutely phenomenal! I really, really love this range and highly recommend it to my fellow curlies!

5) I didn’t feel as if I needed much product after, so only applied, the Twisted Sista leave in conditioner plus some Sunny Isle Jamican Black Castor Oil


So what did I think overall? Well, in a nutshell JUST these two products alone have made my curls come straight back to life and I haven’t even started on the other goodies from Twisted Sista yet! They also sent me a curl spray and gel which I cannot wait to try out!

I have continued use and my curls have so much more bounce, they look happy, so I’m happy! I absolutely love the result and cannot wait to use the other Twisted Sista products I received.  When I grab them out and put them to use - you will be the first to know!

7 Tips To Help You Have Quality Restful Sleep



Are you having trouble falling asleep? 
Below are seven things that can be of help.

1.         Block out light
Your internal workings are governed by a circadian rhythm that tells us to be awake and active during the day, at to rest when night falls. The brain triggers the production of melatonin to help you fall asleep, but this can be hampered by some factors with lights being the most prominent. Try to avoid bright lights at least an hour or so before jumping to bed if you are finding it hard to catch some shut-eye. The lights, especially those in the blue spectrum, are known to affect the circadian rhythm. So try doing things such as dimming the lights, avoiding screens (the TV and smartphones) or have them set to a nighttime mode to reduce the brightness.

2.         Read
Think of it; why is it that kids love bedtime stories? Why is it they these help them fall asleep? We enjoyed the stories but dropped the habit as we grew up and started reading ourselves. Research shows that reading before bed significantly helps improve sleep. As you enter into the world of fiction, your mind is freed from its burdens, and your imagination gets excited making you feel more relaxed thus setting you up for a restful slumber.

3.         Avoid afternoon naps
In as much as those midday naps may be a delight to have, they can be counterproductive. You risk disrupting your sleep schedule if you take long naps during the day because your mind and body may feel rested thus not in tune with the circadian rhythm with its bedtime. Therefore, track your naps so that you do not oversleep. Power naps are the best, do roughly twenty minutes of sleep, and you will wake up feeling refreshed and able to continue with your work.

4.         Exercise daily
Exercising regularly helps to improve sleep; it helps you drift off to slumberland with ease and to have quality sleep. The National Sleep Foundation did a study that showed a person will fall asleep easier and have quality, restful sleep when they engage in around 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous workouts. However, it is wise to point out that exercising late in the day will be counterproductive since it does not allow for enough time for the body to rest and recover before bedtime.

5.         Stick to a sleep schedule
Every person will have a sleep schedule, and this should come naturally. Having trouble sleeping is an indication that the timing is off and thus you may end up staying awake when you go to bed when you know you should be asleep. It is possible to develop a sleep schedule starting with setting a wake-up time that you will follow every morning, and the same applies for a bedtime. Remember to follow the program daily even during the weekends. Opt for an early bedtime to that you get enough sleep hours (around 7 - 9 hours) and wake up early. And ensure you have a relatively new mattress, over 10 years is too old and will be detrimental to sleep - try this Nectar mattress on for size.

6.         Avoid alcohol and eat lightly in the evening
Big meals result in slow digestion that can disrupt your sleep cycle; the same goes for drinking alcohol a few hours before bed. You should plan your meals to be in line with your sleep schedule so that you can eat at least six hours before going to bed, keep the meal light. Also, remember to take water, and this should also be a few hours before bed.

7.         Monitor your bedroom temperature
Sleep research experts suggest that the ideal temperature that encourages better sleep is around 65 degrees. Our body temperatures fluctuate during the day, rising and falling slightly; the patterned is associated with our sleep cycle. When tired, the body temperature tends to drop when we sleep and then shoot up when we wake up. Given such facts, the environment in the room and affect the quality of sleep. If the bedroom is hot, then it will affect your body temperature and make you restless. The same goes if it is too cold. Try to find the perfect temperature setting that suits your body that allows you to fall asleep. Research on what the National Sleep Foundations says about setting the bedroom to have the right environment that encourages sleeping with ease.

Logo Design and its Impact Beyond Brand Building

Think of all the famous logo designs like Nike, McDonald's, FedEx, etc. that has established their brand identity initially with a logo design. We all know that a professional logo design is important for playing a significant role in building a brand. It is a common belief that a logo design is merely the first impression that a company creates for its target audience, and a logo design collectively helps to summarise the overall brand’s perspective with its unique designs.


All business have their own logo designs that represent their company products and services, and with a creative and memorable logo design, a company can drive customers. Many business owners acknowledge the power of logos for the fast building of brand recognition. They find logos as an easier way to ensure consistent visibility of their brands. Logos either have a symbol or text only and both these types of logos create a powerful visual identity of a company and its business in the minds of target customers.'

Consistent Logo Design across Social Platforms:



In today’s time, logo design and a website are not all that makes a brand’s online presence strong. Along with an affordable logo design and a website, it is important to build a strong and reliable brand across all social media platforms.  While creating a brand’s social media profile on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, your company blog and everywhere else where it has an online presence, it should be unified and in line with the essence and style that your brand carries.

A Logo Design Displays a Brand’s Philosophy:

A professional logo design is successful, and an anchor of the brand and the design represents a brand’s philosophy. When designing a logo, an important point to consider is what the brand represents, and what the brand does not represent and the then move towards designing a logo.


Builds Corporate Identity and Trust:





Including your brand’s logo design into your advertising campaigns helps to build your brand’s corporate identity for the overall public. Brands like Nike have made their corporate identity on their logo through showing it in all their advertisements. The more you display your logo design in your advertisements, the more trust, and identity you create for your brand and you get more sales and revenue.

A Logo Design Enhances Brand Exposure:



Using logo design in your advertisement enhances the exposure of your brand. Placing your logo design on all your advertising campaigns gives broad exposure to your brand for your target audience. Creating a connection with people is important for all organisations and a brand can embody attributes which consumers will feel drawn to. People are willing to pay more for a branded product than for the unbranded product so make your brand’s presence reliable and worthy.

Wrapping Up

It would be impractical and unrealistic to expect quick results from just a logo design. Practically, even large global companies took years for great recognition so a logo design may take long like years before establishing a profound relationship with the target audience.
People take time to experience the brand. A company makes efforts to make customers have some good perception of its brand. This, in turn, helps logo design to become a symbol of trust and reliability.
