“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.” – Malala Yousafzai
These are the words that were at the heart of Conscious Magazine’s Issue 04 – Powerful Voices. They chose individuals, ideas, organizations, + creatives to include in this issue who are changing the conversation and creating stronger communities.
That’s a big reason why it’s so incredible that they decided to do an entire feature on the city of Cincinnati. I still don’t think it has really hit me yet that I was asked to be a part of this feature. When my now friend, Abigail Driscoll, reached out to me to ask if I wanted to contribute photojournalistic images for a feature she was writing for Conscious Magazine that highlight the city of Cincinnati, I was absolutely pumped. I think I responded “1,000% YES!” I love people, I love collaborating with others, + I love Cincinnati. This was such an exciting opportunity that I couldn’t wait to be a part of. Thank you to, Abigail and Conscious Magazine for seeking me out + allowing me to be a part of Cincinnati Matters.
Pick up your copy of Conscious Magazine Issue 04 in their store! You don’t want to miss the wonderful words Abigail (of FreeState) wrote highlighting our Queen City and some of the brands + organizations that make this place a conscious community. I don’t think she could have said it better when she wrote, “The future of Cincinnati is bright and sure. I know this because I know the people. We are not only motivated and full of ideas, we are consistent and steadfast. We are determined to make our voices heard throughout the world, to tell stories that matter and to create products and services that not only make a profit, but also make the world a better place.”
A lot of my favorite Cincy brands were represented in this feature. To name a few:
Deeper Roots Coffee
The Parative Project
High Five Salon
