Over the past three years, MNI Alive has been following the journey of an inspiring Caribbean lady who hails from the island of Dominica but now lives in the Washington D.C area of the United States, Miss Chardelle Moore. Chardelle has been on a steady rise with her numerous community initiatives, academic accomplishments and her continued quest to be a top rated media personality. Her talent within her media exploits have brought her much reward, and also have singled her out for special mention from the various individuals and organisations that she has had the pleasure of working with.
Miss Moore graduated from Marymount University with a Bachelors Degree in Communications with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism and Public Relations. She first ventured into professional television as a production assistant at BET. She quickly transitioned from behind the scenes to infront of the camera as a host for an online music show. Later she became a television host for DC Hot Spots on the CW Washington, where she covered the entertainment scene in Washington D.C, and reported from the red carpet at major award shows including The BET Honors and GRAMMYs on the Hill.
Her first international exposure however, was before she was placed infront of the television cameras, when she won the Miss Caribbean Metro USA Pageant. This victory then saw her serving as a spokesperson for the Caribbean American Community.
Chardelle is now the multimedia host and producer for FOX45 and The CW Baltimore. She keeps viewers up-to-date on what's happening in the Baltimore community live on-air, online and on social media. She is also host of the monthly music show "Diaspora Top 6" on KALI TV, a DC based multicultural media organization.
Known for her vibrant personality, Chardelle has interviewed a diverse list of celebrities to include Meagan Good, Claire Danes, Gabrielle Union, Sheila E, Chaka Khan, Lisa Leslie, Tarrus Riley, Konshens, Capleton and many others.
Besides her work in the media, Chardelle is committed to serving the community. She is an award winning motivational speaker and community activist. She also speaks at various schools, universities and community events. Nicknamed, "Motivational Moore, for her dedication to empowering others, she has made several high profile speaking appearances including the White House Caribbean American Celebration and the keynote speaker at the 2013 Maya Angelou Public Charter School Girls Rocks Conference.
Chardelle went on to receive the 2013 DMV CSA Caribbean Leadership Award for her outstanding leadership contributions to the Caribbean community in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia region. Just a few years earlier she was awarded Marymount University Senior Leadership Award for demonstrating excellence in her community outreach initiatives in the metropolitan area and inspiring other students to take her lead.
Miss Moore also serves as the Global Ambassador for BGIA, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to the empowerment and healthy development of African women and girls.
So what’s next for Chardelle? She tells MNI Alive Media; "I have big dreams but I realized that you can’t rush the process. This industry is tough but my strength is even tougher! My motto is to keep God first, stay focused and the sky is the limit. I am just beginning."
She is set to host the 1st Annual Houston Caribbean Queen Pageant this Saturday, June 28th, at the Stafford Civic Center, Stafford TX.
