My name is Sanni and I am an Entertainer, Speaker, and Media Personality based in the Twin Cities. I am a Producer for MyTalk 107.1, a TV host for Twin Cities Public Television, and a Host at The Current. My life wasn't always this shiny though. When I was a young girl, I watched my family fall apart one person at a time. It started with the deportation of my Father and was followed by my Mother experiencing a mental breakdown as a result of Schizoaffective Disorder. Although homelessness, foster care, and emotional and physical abuse followed after that; I managed to graduate from high school, earn a B.A. in Psychology, win a scholarship that would lead me to earn a certificate in Broadcast Performance and Journalism, and graduate from the Speakers Academy of the National Speakers Association.
My story has been featured on Twin Cities Live, KARE 11, 5 Eyewitness News, and Buzzfeed as a 1st place winner in Proctor & Gamble's "My Black is Beautiful" Ambassador Search. I serve on the Board for Dress for Success Twin Cities, and I've spoken for a variety of community organizations that service Women of all ages who have or are going through similar challenges. That is exactly why I created "Cutie Booty Media" a company dedicated to providing content for Women and girls who want to rise above their circumstances; ESPECIALLY when everyone is doubting them. I do this through keynotes, workshops, classes, one-on-one sessions, and an online Magazine that you can find on this site.
