Ingram was promoted last December and now has oversight of day-to-day operations, brand and creative for the network. She leads a team that will produce more original programming than Aspire has ever had. By the end of 2016, the network will have premiered “Magic in the Making,” “Mommy Uncensored,” “Comic Edge,” “ABFF Independent,” “Butter + Brown,” “The Graduates” and “I ASPiRE Olympic Hopefuls.” Equally, if not more, rewarding is her work with the charity The Links, Incorporated. “It’s an absolute pleasure and joy to serve alongside such amazing women instituting change in our community,” Ingram says.

What television show/s – cable or broadcast – best embrace diversity?
In my humble opinion, the television shows that best embrace diversity are “Black-ish,” “Fresh Off the Boat,” “Modern Family,” “Scandal,” “How To Get Away With Murder,” and “To Tell The Truth” because they are truly reflective of the diverse thoughts, experiences and even cultures that the American people embody today with multicultural casts and minority leads that have been atypical on our television screens until now.

My personal election campaign slogan would be…
My personal election campaign slogan would be – “It ain’t over until it’s good.” I’m a strong woman of faith and one of my favorite scriptures is Romans 8:28 – for we know that God works all things together for good for the ones who love Him and are called according to His purpose.   So, when I face things personally that are seemingly insurmountable or impossible to achieve or overcome, I remain steadfast in knowing that the difficult times in my life do not signify any ending until those things are turned around and are glaringly “good.”

Favorite charity organization you work with?
My favorite charity organization that I work with is The Links, Incorporated – one of the nation’s oldest and largest volunteer service organizations for professional women of color committed to elevating, sustaining and ensuring the economic survival of people of the African diaspora. For the last seven years, this organization has allowed me to serve in the greater Atlanta community improving the services extended to Black youth and their families. It is an absolute pleasure and joy to serve alongside such amazing woman instituting change in our community.
