A little over a year ago I set out to start a new venture, one that would open eyes, hearts, and be soothing to your ears. That day has finally come with the debut of The Nikia Phoenix Podcast. The vision is to inspire you to do you. I want you to dream big and do even bigger. We often hear people tell us what we can’t do, but I’m hear to tell you YOU CAN.
For my very first guest I decided to hit up my friend Shawanna Davis of Be Beautiful LA. She is a curator, an artist, and a wonderful human being who is using her platform to inspire a new generation of blackness. In this interview we go deep into topics like self love and depression to channeling energy into creating art. Have a listen!
You can check out more from Shawanna Davis and see some of her amazing artwork on her Instagram. Also, stay tuned for details on her art show and our Black Girl Beautiful x BeBeautifulLA meet up.
With the Nikia Phoenix Podcast each month (and maybe some times in between) I’ll bring you stories of hope, perseverance, and realness from the people who inspire me to keep on keepin on. The next one is coming soon.
