Eva Wilson on the Mic: Interviewer

Eva Wilson is just as comfortable being interviewed as she is interviewing celebrities within and outside of her Caribbean parenting niche. She has interviewed actor Craig Robinson (The Office), Celebrity Chef Roger Mooking (Man, Fire, Food), and Former Miss Universe Wendy Fitzwilliam. While the majority of her interviews have been Caribbean musicians like reggae legend Bunny Rugs and international soca stars Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons, she also spends time interviewing mothers and sharing their stories with her audience on SocaMom.com.
