Aishah-Nyeta is a creative climate storyteller from the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. Her art is influenced by texture and a sensory understanding of the environment in which we inhabit. She has experience managing social media and creating a strategy for successful posting online in more than one space.
Everything has a story, but how can we tell it together for ALL people to understand?
Aishah-Nyeta is a multidisciplinary justice seeker with a background in fine arts, performing arts, climate change/ environmental sustainability, the FEW nexus (food, energy, & water), community resilience, and photography. She maintains integrity at the core of everything she does.
She has been doing climate work since the age of 17 when she first studied the topic at the University of Pretoria in South Africa. Her work has taken her around the world and back, making her more passionate about advocating for the greater good, specifically vulnerable populations (BIPOC, disabled, & children).
Live Events and Speaking
My digital strategy as a creative director and storyteller is to bring authenticity to every picture, post, or room that I engage with. Telling a story to someone at their level is crucial to climate literacy and is how we manage not to leave anyone out of sustainable development or climate conversations.
Influence is on the back burner when learning and education are on the line. Life is a constant stream of learning opportunities for those willing to get into the water; you never know what you will learn when you go with the flow. This flow is something I want to grow with an offer wherever I go.
