Myah Naomi Lipscomb was born in Washington, D.C. and grew up in Adelphi, Maryland as the only child of Sylvester and Chandra Lipscomb. She was taught at the early age of three to be an individual and it eventually became apart of her identity to whole-heartedly and unapologetically be herself. After graduating from Eleanor Roosevelt high school in Greenbelt, Maryland, she moved to Nashville, Tennessee to attend Tennessee State University. Myah was very active in the Student Government Association and became a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. in 2011. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with her Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science/ Pre-Veterinary Medicine. After working as a veterinary assistant for a year and half, she realized that her passion lied elsewhere and that life was too short not to fulfill her dreams. She has always had a strong creative side that she’s expressed through dance, writing, acting, videography, and editing. In December of 2014, she took a leap of faith toward her passion and decided to pursue a career in television and film. She attended Lipscomb University and graduated with her Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) degree in Film & Creative Media in December 2017.
Myah’s passion for television and film comes from the desire to create content that positively represents people of color, especially women of color, in a respectable manner. She is the creator of an award winning scripted television comedy series, #WeirdMYAH, and is currently in the process of getting it picked up by a television network or streaming platform. She currently works as a freelance director, cinematographer, and editor for individuals, artists, musicians, events, businesses, and local television stations.
Myah lives by the anonymous quote, "Reach for the moon, because if you miss, you'll still land among the stars" and is so grateful for the many opportunities God has blessed her with. She has worked for the 2015 BET Honors, NAACP Awards, and BET Awards shows, been an extra and stand-in for the hit series, Nashville, and attended the 2017 Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, just to name a few. She truly appreciates every breath, experience, achievement, failure, and opportunity that has pushed her along this journey.
Myah is a firm believer in destiny and the fact that we were all created and placed on this Earth for a unique purpose to fulfill. She has found happiness in her passion and it is her hope to use this passion to inspire.
