Arielle is a Writer, Speaker, Teacher, and Creative out to remind individuals of their worth through words. She has Co-Authored two self-published collections of poetry and recently released her EP of poetry and music called Symphony of a Lioness.
In this episode, Arielle is sharing about how being vulnerable in her spoken word poetry is vital to her art, the importance of an arts education, and how a trip to Thailand led her to be involved in a mission to end human trafficking and exploitation.
My ability to set myself up to be bare and vulnerable allowed other people to do the same.
We had parents who let us fully engage and experiment in all the areas and aspects of who we could be.
We have the tendency to hide behind what we do and lose the human aspect of being artists.
I’m an artist because I want to remind people that they’re worthy and that they’re enough.
I still get nervous, but my nervousness keeps me grounded and reminds me that this isn’t about me.
These stories are so sacred and precious that I would do them a disservice if I forgot them.
