About me

Mayah Simone, Founder and Editor

Welcome to Fruit of May and thank you for visiting my digital lifestyle publication. It’s about everything I love, including natural hair, hip-hop music, entrepreneurship and so much more.

Who am I!? My name is Mayah Simone. I am from Rocky Mount, North Carolina. I currently live in the Raleigh/Durham area. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications from Meredith College and a Master of Science degree in Multimedia Journalism from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

I launched this site to create projects I’m passionate about, to share my truths, to write about my experiences and to connect with others just like me. I write to inspire and empower my readers to live passionately, heal unconditionally and grow spiritually.

Fruit of May promotes self-love, self-care and inner peace for women of color. Join our online community for weekly advice on how to nourish your mind, body and soul.
