Hello, Stage 32 creatives! Rashika Roberts is a big personality, short chic pretending to be tall in sparkly heels. She is the author of How to Get Away with Marriage, a humorous relationship guide. She’s developing a virtual comedy show adaptation of the book. Rashika is a screenwriter, journalist, and show host.
Rashika was born in a small town in North Carolina where she was raised in a large church-going family that fostered over six children. When she graduated high school, it was natural for her to receive an Associate of Applied Science in Early Childhood Education and teach preschool for seven years before discovering she could and (very much wanted) to write.
Rashika’s creative writing career started as an author. She published and illustrated four children’s books and a self-help guide which led to a weekly column and senior editor for the Good Men Project Magazine. While she enjoyed interviewing artists, actors, and experts, it was her love for storytelling that motivated her to expand her creative talents.
After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing for Entertainment from Full Sail University, Rashika published Bold, a lifestyle magazine, wrote and produced two award-winning short films. After receiving a Certification in Media Communications, she expanded The Natural Chic™ brand, launching the Natural Chic Show, a podcast that features film and TV series and can be heard on iHeart Radio and many podcast apps. Rashika understands the value of education in the arts. She received a Certification in Contract Law and a Certification in Entrepreneurial Essentials from Harvard University to enhance the quality of her body of work and maintain a knowledge-based foundation to increase sustainability in the industry.
Rashika joined Stage 32 to make connections and build relationships. Six years later, she's a blogger and Community Leader who simply can't share enough about the education and authenticity of the platform.
