Unashamed about exploring her inquisitive nature, Raquelle “Rocki” Harris enjoys exchanging energy and knowledge. Writing and editing are cathartic for this proud sapiosexual who has an insatiable love for visual and audio media.
With almost 20 years in the social work field Raquelle understands what it takes to reach people and leave a lasting impression. She is driven by her purpose to connect with others and connect them to each other.
Raquelle is finally aligning her passion with her purpose as she produces content that is both engaging and exact. Her frank, but helpful nature is the foundation for her integrity. Throughout the years, she has shed the shame of being an overweight bookworm by transforming into a confident beauty who values her interior and exterior attributes.
Along with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Afro-American & African Studies from the University of Michigan, she holds a Broadcast Media Arts diploma from Specs Howard School of Media Arts. Although she grew up in a blighted environment, she used the determination instilled in her by her family to excel. Raquelle strives to become an influential media presence via multiple platforms. In addition to writing and editing, she enjoys hosting events and facilitating in-depth discussions.
Raquelle has contributed to various online publications including For Harriet, Empire Life, Nia Magazine and Speakers Magazine. She is currently a contributor to rolling out magazine and ThisisRnB.com. Her affiliations include the Aspiring Writers Association of America and the Detroit chapter of the National Association for Black Journalists.
Raquelle’s podcast, Rocki’s Reality, explores unfiltered and unapologetic perspectives on black culture, relationships, race and music.
