In this series we invite you to meet and learn from thinkers, doers, and believers who find success by actively living in the grey.

We recently caught up with E! News Correspondent, Alicia Quarles. Prior to joining E!, she spent nine years at the Associated Press where she was the Global Entertainment and Lifestyles Editor helping spearhead entertainment coverage while continuing to cover major events, and offering pop culture commentary and analysis for numerous outlets. She was also instrumental in covering President Obama’s inauguration, the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor and the deaths of Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.

NABJ President Gregory Lee says, “Alicia has a clear understanding of the importance of telling stories across platforms. As an entertainment journalist she finds compelling ways to relay to people information about some of the most talked about stories of the day.”

Below, we speak with Alicia Quarles on pursuing her passons, how she got her first big break, and what living in the grey truly means for her.

    I was uplifted and inspired to pursue my dreams in Journalism. I have always had the ability to speak, write, and be in front of the camera. I am a sophomore in high school with a grade point average of 4.2. After high school, I plan on attending Spelman College. I want to major in English with a focus in Journalism. I was definitely inspired by this segment. This segment has pushed me to channel my anger and anxiety into passion and courageousness. Thank You for that wonderful interview.
