Words of Advice from Devi Dev, Host of MTV’s Hip Hop POV x Radio Personality

Like us, Devi Dev, host of MTV’s Hip Hop POV and co-host on Sirius XM’s Sway in the Morning, is a music lover, jokester, incessant chatterer and career woman. She is building an empire in a male dominated industry with a million-dollar smile, and still finds time to get married, travel and spend time with her loved ones.

The bubbly Los Angeles native was nice enough to give some quick insight on confidence and love.

Our motto is to “Be Bold, Beautiful and Brilliant. Give us your perspective on what it takes to be a bold, beautiful and brilliant woman.

Fearlessness! Be fearless in your belief’s, paths and actions. Not being scared of what people think and not being scared of fully being yourself at all times is what I consider to be beautiful, bold and brilliant about myself and what I find BBB in others.

Also, what tips can you give the single ladies about finding true love?

For single ladies i’d say enjoy being single! Right when I was at the peak of fully loving and embracing being single and quality time with myself…love smacked me across my face. I always found it cliche when people said things like “Love happens when you’re not looking” but I’ve found it to be the truest thing. If I hadn’t been fully comfortable being by myself and in love with myself first…I wouldn’t have been ready for love when it found me. So ladies…enjoy your me time!
