It's nice to meet you.
My name is Nakia; it means pure + faithful in Arabic. I am a writer, journalist, and educator. My speciality is launching programming in collaboration with the people it directly impacts and serves. I love curating experiences where humans feel inspired. I publish books that are created for and by Black girls, women, and youth.Read my full bio
I believe writing is a tool for self-exploration, healing, and radical self-care.
Do you have a program in mind that you just can’t seem to get off the ground? Hire me to provide consulting, coaching, or to launch a program that directly serves women or youth.
Produce a beautiful print or digital anthology that is written by and for people in their most authentic voices.
Speaking + Teaching
Invite me into your educational, corporate, or community space to read my personal writing, discuss the impact of using writing as a tool for healing, and the impact of writing in the lives of women + youth.
Journalism is my first love. I am always open to writing long form feature stories and op-ed pieces about education, racial justice, travel, food, art, love, and such.
