In fact, Nikeya’s first book “Virtue Chic: Classy Takes Center Stage'' (2017) is a “must read” for Christian single women! The book includes a foreword by Minister/Author Niki Winston, & dishes out practical and spiritual advice on style, dating, pursuing your purpose, resisting the urge to compete with other women, and SO much more!

As an entertainer, Nikeya has quite an extensive resume! She released her debut album, “Victorious One” (a Christian Pop/Hip-Hop/R&B album) in 2013. All songs were written by Nikeya and the album was produced by her husband Rodney Young Jr. She was nominated for the Contemporary Female Vocalist of the Year award at the Chicago Gospel Music Awards that year and the album received great reviews.

Nikeya has worked with brands such as Country Financial, YMCA, Memorial Hospital, Walgreens, Kellogg's, and Kohl's to name a few! She has held multiple beauty queen titles, and her expertise has been featured in too many media outlets/blogs to name!
