#1,897 Creative Economy.

Today I had the GREAT pleasure of speaking at a statewide event put on by the Mississippi Department of Tourism about the Mississippi Creative Economy. I got to be the keynote speaker along with Malcolm White, owner of the world famous Hal and Mal’s, and director of Visit Mississippi. I can’t tell you how honored I was to be invited to this. 

The topic centered around how Mississippi’s historic downtowns are the key to thriving communities and the creative economy, so you can imagine how fast my heart was beating before I went up to speak. Those are two things I really believe God created me to be an advocate of. And doesn’t it feel amazing when you get the opportunity to really have a voice and feel like you’re becoming who you were meant to be?

So many thanks to Malcolm and Ellen for putting on the event and letting me be a small part of it. I only hope it could be a spark in some other creative hopeful’s heart.
