Mikia Jeter is a Greenville, SC native born on July 27th, 1989. She originally dreamed of becoming a counselor, never knowing she internally yearned for something more...bigger, better. Mikia relocated to Atlanta in 2013 to pursue an acting career. Although radio was not in the picture for this aspiring actress, MJ's upbeat, crazy, outspoken, and opinionated fit in perfectly at Boss FM! She enthusiastically adapted to her new venture in radio broadcasting and co-led her on morning show (The ShakeUP) for 3 years. In January of 2017, she decided to resign from her show to focus solely on her acting career.
Mikia made her first television debut in February 2015 where she landed a lead role on TV One's Fatal Attraction. Since then, she has been featured in several short films and web series.
The amount of love and support I get from my family, friends, and especially strangers makes my heart so full. There is no act or deed like the backing of a stable foundation, and that is what I feel I have received from so many of you. I truly believe that my purpose in life is to entertain. Whether I make you laugh, cry, mad, or simply plant a seed that sparks a thought I find great completion in that act. In the days that we are gifted on this earth true fulfillment should be the chief goal. I am thankful for the opportunity to reach that status daily. I could never put into words what you all mean to me, but I want to take this chance to merely say thank you for believing in me. I’ll see you at the top! Namaste.
