A Message Every Woman Needs To Hear With Arielle Estoria
In this episode, Arielle Estoria shares two of her soulful spoken word poems as we talk about society’s image of a healthy body, Nike’s curve mannequins, her latest swimsuit modelling gig for Summersalt, and finding self worth.
Arielle Estoria broke into the world of competitive Spoken Word poetry in 2012 and then branched out as a freelance contracted poet in 2015. She has used her background in psychology and theater as a creative bridge between intellect, creativity, the mind and the heart. Through various aspects of storytelling (Spoken Word, Event Hosting (Emcee), Acting and Voice Overs), Arielle’s motto “Words are not for the ears but for the soul” helps pierce the audience’s soul and blooms awareness of identity and worthiness. Her words help instill and remind individuals of their value through words.
Arielle is the co-author of two self-published collections of poetry: Vagabonds and Zealots (2014) and Write Bloody Spill Pretty (2017). In 2016, she released her EP of poetry and music titled Symphony of a Lioness.
