Welcome! I'm Malia, a Brooklyn-based writer and social storyteller, born and raised in the heart/armpit of South Carolina. I was Director of Social Media at The Daily Beast, and before that worked at Comedy Central (Colbert Report, Daily Show, Nightly Show) and Cosmopolitan. I write about many things, including relationships and being alone, gender, epilepsy, mental health, Harry Potter, my cat Yam, and being biracial in the South. I am a proud member of the 2019 Poynter Leadership Academy for Women in Digital Media, a comedian struggling with imposter syndrome, and in the world that I’m working on living in, I take long walks in Prospect Park, eat lots of pasta and bring people together with words.
