Sistah Girls, I’m so excited to have Deesha Dyer on the podcast!

Without credentials, connections, or a college degree, a hip-hop journalist and community leader conquered her imposter syndrome while landing one of the most exclusive, sought-after, and fun positions in the White House.

From, 2015 to 2017 Dyer served as the White House Social Secretary for the Obama administration. While at the White House, Dyer followed Obama’s wishes and opened up the most popular house in the world to everyday people.

Dyer has planned some of the most historic events like the first time Pope Francis visited the White House and special moments like having the Girl Scouts have a slumber party on the White House lawn.

Dyer infused the White House with Black culture, she had a step team perform at one event and had The St. Augustine Gospel Choir perform Richard Smallwood’s 1996 song, “Total Praise” for Pope Francis during his visit at the White House.

And now with a new company and a new outlook on work and life, Deesha has added author to her name. Her memoir Undiplomatic: How My Attitude Created the Best Kind of Trouble is a story that reminds everyone that it’s not where you start but how you finish.

And she answers the question: How does a college dropout who ends up at a community college land an internship at the White House in their 30s and then become the Social Secretary for the Obama Administration?

Check out my interview with her below and don’t forget to rate and comment on the podcast!
