Bio

Mitzy shares her journey through writing, spoken word, and videography. She's consciously unlearning messages that prevented her from living wholeheartedly. She believes in respecting another person's worldview and know there is power in knowing more than one story. Her living, working in different environments, and life lessons make her voice one of the transformational stories added to the narrative of overcoming adversities.


Her motivation is to inspire others who experienced all levels of adversities to take back autonomy, dignity and confidence. She knows for sure the incredible effect of support, empathy, compassion, practicing forgiveness, awareness, continued learning, speaking up, and letting go to move forward, to know oneself, connection to others, and being in the world with more presence and less chasing pretty.
