Episode 23: Gloria Umanah
TO BE SEEN AND KNOWN
I know I’ve said it before, but truly this is one of my favorite interviews to date. Poignant. Honest. Hopeful.
GLORIA UMANAH is a spoken word artist, gifted communicator, and the founder/executive director of the Ex-Nihilo Collective, an organization raising up high capacity creatives and leaders. Their latest initiative, the Hope Booth, is a 3-minute immersive experience that delivers messages of hope in the form of remodeled phone booths stationed in cities around the world.
In everything she does, Gloria is passionate about reaching people that feel invisible and reminding them that they are seen and known. I hope you walk away from this episode reminded of the impact your life can have on this world.
(Note: this episode includes topics of mental health, including the mention of suicide. Resources: National Suicide Prevention Lifeline)
