Writer | Blogger | Entrepreneur

Thank you all for stopping by my little slice of the internet.

My name is Jia “Miss Ikonic” McMillan-Shipley. I’m an American writer, blogger, poet and entrepreneur from Pittsburgh, PA currently residing in Philadelphia. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Communication from Clarion University of Pennsylvania in 2014 at age 21, cum laude. I’m also the CEO of my own t-shirt and hoodie line Kulturally Appropriate, a brand dedicated to empowering the kulture and encouraging supreme excellence.

The Ikon is a publication, written exclusively by yours truly, that’s committed to delivering quality content in subjects ranging from music to relationships. Enjoy 😀!
