Meet Michaela Audio Transcript

[00:00:00] Hello there. My name is Michaela Ayers, and just like you, I hold many different identities. I am a daughter, creator, facilitator, and sweet potato pie enthusiast. 

[00:00:22] I launched Nourish in 2016 as a series of dinner parties because I saw a need in the market for more artful, engaging, and creative learning environments. The DEI industry is inundated with lecture style corporate trainings that don't stimulate adult learners or support long term behavior change. 

[00:00:53] I truly believe that people learn best by doing, and that conversations are one of the primary ways that we make meaning together. That is why Nourish takes an interactive approach to educational events that prioritizes human connection and supports conversations across difference.

[00:01:22] As a multidisciplinary artist, I weave creative practices into my offerings because I believe that creative play is the backbone to a fulfilling life.

[00:01:43] When I'm not facilitating workshops or hosting events, you can find me elevating the impact of Black women through my project, Black Her Stories. 

[00:01:55] Black Her Stories is a creativestorytelling podcast and intergenerational community that centers the lived experiences of black women, past and present. 

[00:02:12] Through this platform, I explore the concepts of Blackness and belonging and create a space to celebrate black history all year round, which is my absolute favorite thing.

[00:02:27] Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me and explore my site. If these offerings resonate with you, please don't hesitate to reach out. Head on over to my contact form and say hi, I love to collaborate.
