What PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Takirra and I connected a few months ago and I’ve already become one of her biggest fans. I truly feel honored to have her and Unapologetic Communications representing me. We’ve already made tremendous progress in a very short period of time – just months – with my voice and writing published in NY Magazine, Essence, and the ReidOut Blog. With Takirra, sky’s the limit and I’m looking forward to all the successes and abundance that we will have together this year.”

“Takirra has a rare ability to communicate with the kind of clarity, urgency, and authenticity that cuts through the noise and sheds light on some of the most important issues of our time.”

Whether she is solving complicated problems, introducing new ideas, or offering searing analysis, Takirra persuades allies and opponents.
