"I use poetry to love, create, heal and teach."
I'm Jaiye Empress!*
I am a spiritual storyteller, creative visonary, master manifester, and prolific poetic prophetess!
I am also the uniquely self-proclaimed G.R.I.O.T-Soul Seer (G.S.S.), which stands for:
I envision, write and spit potent poetic sh*t!
*Jaiye is a Yoruba word that means to enjoy life.
I pronounce my name like "jay,"
NOT the traditional way, "ja/yey"
Poet, Authoress, G.S.S...
From public speaking performances, group workshops, virtual and in person events, I bring people together and I help connect individuals to their own personal power through the powers of art and creativity.
Put very simply:
I want to inspire you to inspire yourself!
To learn how to love and heal yourself unapologetically!
Check out my first book!
My very raw, candid self-love story told through a series of poems, quotes & journal entries.
This is the soul anchor you've been looking for!
Your sacred self-guide for healing.
May my story inspire you to delve deeper into your own.
To own ALL parts of yourself unapologetically:
your wildness as well as your softness...
