About Jelicia Saulter

Going into journalism school was the perfect fit for Toronto born writer, brand ambassador and staff comedian, Jelicia Saulter. Always having a knack for reading tangible material, working for a magazine that still had print was a no brainer. Being the third of six children, in the 90s she was always surrounded by good music from 70s and 80s hip-hop, R&B, soul and jazz to rap, pop and disco passed down from her two older sisters. Being raised by her grandmother and told many times, “when bored read a book,” writing and reading became a second nature habit. There was no surprise that when nothing spoke to her growing up, music was always there. Looking for the next up and comer is a treat while being able to visit different countries and venues doing her job for #TeamUrbanology.
