I am Naderah Munajj, Born in San Antonio, TX raised in Miami, FL. at the tender age of 4, I began taking classes to develop what I now recognize as my passion and life’s purpose. I began at the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center located in the heart of of Miami's Liberty City, where I was trained in ballet, modern dance, hip-hop, Lindy hop, Jazz dance, Musical theater, and vocal Performance.
By the second grade I was the youngest dancer ever accepted into the magnet dance program at Charles R. Drew elementary school, I continued to develop my talents in the dance magnet program at Charles R Drew Middle school., and attended the prestigious New World School of the Arts, Dance magnet for High school. It was at New world that I developed a new love
and appreciation for all art forms and began to explore new talents in vocal music and acting. I joined the New World connection and served as an artistic ambassador for the institution for 2 years consecutively. In the summer of 2005 I was accepted into the prestigious Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater summer intensive where I trained with Troy Powell, Peter London, and many others. It was then that I truly realized that the performing arts was my calling, and I wanted to spend my life advocating for the performing arts.
In 2007 I made the decision to attend Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU), where I would later receive my bachelors of science in Accounting, with a minor in Dance Education. Following the guidance of my parents, I was urged to obtain a degree in a field that would supplement my training as a dancer and make me a much more savvy business woman when my career as professional performing artist has come to an end. While attending FAMU, I became a member of Mahogany dance theater where I served as the company rehearsal Director/ choreographer. In 2009 I began using my talents to serve the universities electoral commission as Pageant coordinator for the royal court and Mr and Miss FAMU pageants for the 2009-2011 school terms. In 2010, I became the dance captain for the FAMU Connection, a musical theater troupe that served as ambassadors for the university by teaching prospective students the profound history of the university through song and dance.
Upon graduating, I decided that I would take my talents the hills of Hollywood and continue to pursue my dream of becoming a professional performing artist. I remained in LA for a short year before retuning to my hometown of Miami, FL to begin working with Poe Boy Music Group as the executive Assistant to the CEO Elric "E-class" Prince and President Elvin "Big Chuck" Prince. It was there at Poe Boy my accounting and business skills proved to serve me best. It was then I realized my purpose was much greater than just being a Performing artist. I knew then I could combine my passion for the arts, my love of childhood development, and entrepreneurial spirit to create something of my own; ASID Entertainment Group, LLC.
