I am Daphné Mia Essiet. I am a self-proclaimed woman of a rich cultural background a quintessential human being: La Renaissance Femme, that’s me.

I am also an integrative artist (music, writing, visual and performance) and Social Justice Activist.

It took me a while, and to be honest – I am still trying to figure things out to this day – to realize that my life’s purpose was to fight for gender and racial equality by means of writing and creating beautiful art. As an interdisciplinary artist, I try to highlight my realities as a woman of color by means of sharing my experiences but not exclusively.

Overall, my goal here is to share interesting anecdotes, books, articles, art as it relates to womanhood, racial identity and being an Afropean living in New York City.
