We had the good fortune of connecting with Alesia Anderson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alesia, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success is staying true to myself. As cliché as that sounds, it’s nothing but facts. There are so many other amazing and talented food bloggers and I love it; so many Black and POC foodies are out here showcasing their creativity. My content is what it is and my audience of loyal HUNGRAYYGANG supporters see that. It’s authentically me and that’s how I’ve been able to build and retain an engaging following. They see my vision, the consistency and all the other things that go into crafting my brand. Along with staying true to self, I’d say simply having fun with it is important too. I never lose sight of the fun aspect of this whole thing because that’s what my why is rooted in.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I currently work a 9-5 job and then I come home and work on my food blog. It can be a little challenging trying to keep up sometimes, but I’ve learned it is super important to stay organized.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
OMG! This is always the hardest question for me. Dallas has so many amazing places to visit and enjoy yourself. This question would literally take me weeks to complete. Hahaha.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to give a huge shoutout to my HUNGRAYYGANG. My loyal followers have been so supportive throughout my entire journey and I love them so much! I literally could not have done it without them.
