In honor of Women's History Month, we'll be getting the inside scoop on beauty tips, career advice, and secret passions of PhenomeNAIL women doing incredible things.


Our next PhenomeNAIL Woman is Deja Perez from 93.9 WKYS in Washington, DC. This fiery radio personality started as a part timer in the WPGC-FM research depart, and now hosts her very own #1 Late Night show, Deja After Dark.  See our full interview below.

Q: How long have you been in radio?

A: I've been in radio for almost 12 years! Yikes!

Q: Who inspired you to pursue a career in radio?

A: I grew up listening to Angie Martinez on Hot 97 in NY. Honestly, I've ALWAYS loved music...but SO did not go to school to be on the radio!

Q: What tips would you give other women aspiring in your field?

A: Be true to who you are! God made you uniquely different for a reason. Radio doesn't need another Angie Martinez....though I love her!

Q: What song instantly puts you in a good mood?

A: It depends...when I need a little Jesus...that would be Yolanda Adams "Victory" or Kirk Franklin "Smile". When I need to feel like I can take on the world...than Monster with Nicki Minaj  :)

Q: What artists are on the guest list for your most perfect dinner party? 

A: Erykah Badu, Ledisi, Kanye, Drake, Nicki M, Prince, Ludacris, Russell Simmons.

Q: What’s the best advice you've ever received?

A: You're job can replace you in 7-10 business days...but your family can't!

Q:  What’s your beauty secret?

A: Ha! Not sure I really have one. I'm a pretty low key. I love some Johnson & Johnson baby lotion...or some Palmer's cocoa butter...also I use Argan oil on my face and hair. And of course...25th & June on my nails!!!

Thank you so much to the beautiful Miss Deja Perez! She is truly inspiring. Be sure to catch her on the airwaves on 93.9 WKYS, or on the Raheem DeVaughn Show at Deja is wearing our cult favorite, Brilliant & Bazaar.
