Hi there! Aisha Adkins here. I am an advocate, storyteller, caregiver, and speaker based in Atlanta, Georgia.
Born as a preemie in the Western United States, I spent the early part of my life outside of Seattle, but I’ve been in the metro Atlanta area for nearly 20 years. I am the lovable, nerdy only child of two high school sweetheart parents and an extroverted introvert.
In 2018, I started my graduate school career at the Georgia State University Andrew Young School of Public Studies. It has, by far, been one of the greatest educational experiences I’ve ever had. The diverse student population, the service-centered cirriculum, the accommodating schedules. It’s all been pretty great, but the neatest part of my experience has been learning from amazing Black, women professors. My graduate research assistantship is housed under the School of Nursing and I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn from them and research alongside them. It is a truly invaluable experience that is rare outside of HBCUs.
When I am not studying, I try to submerge myself in culture and nature. My parents was raised me with an appreciation for the arts as well as the outdoors, with acting lessons and trips to the mountains. My faith in God is my strength and my hope. Cute baby videos are (a portion of) my therapy.
If you are interested in my freelance copy-writing/copy editing, public speaking, or content creation services, or if you are interested in serving on the Our Turn 2 Care board, head over to the contact page to send me an e-mail. I’d love to work with you!
