About the Speaker:
Amanda Perna is a mom, wife & fashion expert (and Broward native!) who believes in looking beyond the easy road to follow your dreams. While studying fashion design at the University of Alabama, Amanda achieved her dream: a design internship at Oscar de la Renta and the following summer an internship at Calvin Klein. With an entrepreneurial spirit, at the ripe old age of 19 she started her first fashion brand. Before graduating college, Amanda was offered a job at Calvin Klein, which she gladly accepted and finished her studies a semester ahead of schedule to start living her dream. With an entrepreneurial spirit, at the ripe old age of 19 she started her first fashion brand. Before graduating college, Amanda was offered a job at Calvin Klein, which she gladly accepted and finished her studies a semester ahead of schedule to start living her dream.

Always interested in learning and growing, Amanda furthered her studies at the fashion institute of technology while working as a full-time fashion designer. Although she was working her dream job, Amanda wanted more; to own her own business. She wanted to create whimsical, bold clothing and accessories. Against the advice of everyone she knew, Amanda quit her job and started the house of Perna. Her designs have been sold in major retailers such as Anthropologie, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s & Neiman Marcus. On a constant quest to push herself, Amanda has also had a variety of experiences and collaborations. She has been featured as a textile designer and fashion illustrator for brands such as hallmark and Neiman Marcus.

She also styles celebrities for national commercials. Above all else, Amanda believes in helping others. She is a mentor to students and works with many new brands to help them achieve their dreams too. P.S. She was also on project runway twice.

First-Ever Event Presented By NATPE In Association With The NAACP And The NHFA

“Living the Dream: A Career in Content” Featuring Esai Morales, Gloria Calderon Kellett, Benjamin Lobato and more in Miami on January 21, 2019

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 9, 2018) – NATPE, the National Association of Television Program Executives, will present the first ever “Living the Dream: A Career in Content” event in partnership with the NAACP, (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) and the NHFA (National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts). The event will be held on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 21, 2019, one day before NATPE Miami 2019 commences, at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach Florida.

The special event is designed to assist students, young professionals and others with a desire to enter the entertainment and media industries to learn more about how their dreams can become a reality. Both the NHFA and the NAACP are committed to raising awareness of diversity and inclusion in front and behind the camera as well as in all creative content with the overall mission to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination. The organizations both have programs to inspire today’s youth and are committed to furthering awareness of multi-cultural content, diversity in media, and inspiring youth to follow their dreams.

World-renowned producer, director, actor and screenwriter Tyler Perry, will deliver the Keynote Address. Mr. Perry is an outstanding example of an individual who began his career with very little and through extraordinary talent and dedication has risen to the top of the industry in all areas of his multi-talented skills. Mr. Perry’s remarks will be followed by a panel headlined by CSI: Los Angeles’ Esai Morales, showrunner for USA’s “Queen of the South”, Benjamin Lobato and Netflix’ “One Day at a Time” showrunner Gloria Calderon Kellett, as well as other leading talent, executives, producers and writers who have imbedded storylines of diversity in their works. The final portion of the day’s presentations will be followed by a “Celebration of Creativity”, in which three pre-selected students will present story ideas dealing with diversity live onstage to a panel of industry-leading development executives. The three budding young filmmakers will be selected from the NAACP’s Hollywood Bureau film education program, which searches the country for talented young people in a variety of disciplines, and the NHFA’s whose PitchDC and PitchNY programs showcase authentic and original content ideas from NHFA student scholars, alumni and associates.

“This will be a very special day. A day to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and to inspire and empower young people as they begin a career in entertainment and media. We are honored to be presenting this event, headlined by Tyler Perry, and in association with two of the most respected organizations in America,” said JP Bommel, President and CEO, NATPE. “I know that those that will attend will be enriched with greater knowledge about the opportunities that lie before them.”

“Martin Luther King, like Cesar Chavez, spent their lives working to become the change they asked us all to become in our beloved country,” said Felix Sanchez, NHFA Chairman and Co-founder, “during these trying times, we look to storytellers to reveal the true narrative of our nation. We applaud NATPE for its leadership to advance these principles.”

“Joining forces with NATPE on Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday is right in line with the efforts we put forth to bring diversity to the forefront of everyone’s minds, especially in the world of entertainment,” said Derrick Johnson, President and CEO, NAACP. “We are honored to bring students together to hear from one of the greatest creative and business minds of our generation in Tyler Perry, and are excited to reveal the rest of the programming, which will feature top talent and executives from television, as we draw closer to the event.”

All proceeds from the event will go to the NATPE Educational Foundation to support educational initiatives. NATPE will invite students from Miami-area universities and high schools who are interested in getting into the entertainment/media business to the event. Industry execs attending NATPE will also be in attendance to network and engage with students. The NATPE Educational Foundation and its programs are focused on creating new professional opportunities for young professionals looking to pursue a career in Hollywood.

The National Hotel, the cinematic Art Deco treasure in the heart of South Beach, is partnering with Neighbors 4 Neighbors, a nationally recognized nonprofit and partner of local broadcast station CBS4, to host Chefs 4 Neighbors, a culinary benefit event to raise funds to support individuals and families with immediate needs. Proceeds from the event will go towards Neighbors 4 Neighbors’ Family Fund and victims of Hurricane Michael through a partnership with Farm Share. The Family Fund program offers financial assistance to otherwise self-sufficient individuals who have an immediate need or emergency, preventing them from entering the cycle of poverty. The Family Fund will purchase supermarket gift cards for families experiencing food insecurity.

“During hard times, people economize by going hungry, and with 37% of Miami-Dade households either in poverty or making ends meet, it is important we host events like these to support those in need in our community, especially true after a natural disaster such as Hurricane Michael,” said Yaser Mohamad, General Manager, National Hotel. “By supporting Neighbors 4 Neighbors’ Family Fund, we are helping restore the financial self-sufficiency of individuals who are willing to work but are temporarily unable to do so or are going through unexpected hardships.”
