About Me

Ilyasah N Shabazz
(ill-ee-ah-suh en shuh-bahhz)

Thank you for visiting my website! As a nonprofit communicator, I love seeing the results of marketing campaigns and events. I spend my days raising awareness for social causes to attract clients, donors and volunteers. Essentially, my day job is to create great content in order to build a better community. Most recently, I worked with Habitat for Humanity of Wake County and spent my days communicating big ideas on local affordable housing needs in both traditional and nontraditional ways. Currently, I’m working as a freelancer to help clients meet and exceed their communications and event goals.

I have a passion for economic empowerment and am currently studying for the Accredited Financial Counselor exam. In addition to my day-to-day work as a communications and events professional,  I want to be a resource for individuals and families who want to improve their finances. Every day, I combine my passion for communicating with social good — and I’m loving it! When I’m not working or volunteering, I’m rewatching old Big Brother episodes or taking a body pump class.
