About the Speaker

Hailing from New York City, Ramsey is a writer, blogger, and actress. Her self-described "claim to fame" happened when her video, titled "Sh*t White Girls Say to Black Girls," went viral and sparked a field day on major news outlets. Since then she has been interviewed and invited as guest correspondent which she did so regularly on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. 

More recently, Ramsey has been hosting her MTV News series Decoded, which discusses race and popular culture. In 2018 she published Well, That Escalated Quickly: Memoirs and Mistakes of an Accidental Activista collection of personal essays. She also manages and creates content for her two YouTube channels: the Chescaleigh Comedy Channel which features parody performances, and the Chescalocs Channel where she posts about beauty, haircare and style advice.
