Rhonesha Byng

With a stack of goals that stack much higher than her petite 5-foot-2 inch frame, Rhonesha knows a thing or two about getting things done. Rhonesha Byng's philosophy in life is represented by her acronym of N.E.S.H.A. – No one Ever Slows Her Agenda, which was also the inspiration for her company – HerAgenda.com. The site is a digital media platform working to bridge the gap between ambition and achievement for millennial women.

Her Agenda was listed in FORBES' 2013 list of The 100 Best Websites For Women, and named one of the 10 Best Sites For Millennial Women.

Named 28 Under 28 by NBCBLK and one of 29 People To Know by BET, she's been featured by publications including Black Enterprise, Cosmopolitan.com, and Seventeen Magazine. Her work as a journalist has been awarded by the Associated Press, and the New York Association of Black Journalists. Her work as a field producer with NBC New York (WNBC-TV) earned her an Emmy award as part of team coverage for a breaking news story.

Byng is a contributor to The Huffington Post and Madame Noire's business section. She is a graduate of The Points of Light Spring '15 Civic Accelerator where she focused on bringing Her Agenda into it's next phase.

Byng is an alumna Posse Scholar and attended Depauw University on a full-tuition leadership scholarship.
