I’m Naja Hall. Tony’s Wife, Nate’s daughter and a sister/friend to many. I was born and raised in Memphis, TN and I have called Harlem, New York City my home since 2007. I am the founder of the largest blended family community for millennials, Blended and Black. I also founded MissNaja.com, VIPStepmom.com and my passion project Dating Debacles, which helps me stay close to my comedy writing-roots.
I earned an undergraduate degree from The University of Tennessee in Family and Consumer Sciences. I went on to attend The University of North Texas where I worked on my MBA in International Business. While in Dallas, TX I began my career as a corporate Buyer for Fortune 500 companies. One day while gazing out of my cushy office window, I noticed my colleagues, seemingly in a single filed lined, in the same dark suit, walking into a workday of monotony. It was then that I hopped on my glittery broomstick, flew away and never looked back!
If I could have one super-power, I would love to be able to teleport. That way, I could have cheese eggs, bacon and grits with my Grandma in Memphis every morning, go for a mid-day swim in Antigua, have lunch in Rome with perfect strangers and be home in time for dinner with my Husband in Manhattan.
I am always up for collaborations, fun projects and such, so feel free to shoot me an email at email@example.com. All inquiries will be addressed within 24 hours.
