I started noticing Najwa’s Instagram posts for months before I met her.
Her voice and thoughts were so compelling, I felt like she was speaking the exact feelings of my heart.
When I met her in Toronto to interview her, it was like meeting family.
Najwa may have a completely different background than me, growing up in Lebanon and Canada as a Muslim woman, but she is so relateable that literally hundreds of thousands of people read her posts every day.
I loved getting to know her story so much, I invited her to speak at the Summit of Greatness this year.
She brought down the house and everyone loved her.
One of the reasons Najwa’s poems and voice resonate so deeply with so many people is that she is willing to be courageously vulnerable and share the truth about what it feels like to be human.
The way she describes love, loss, hurt, pain, redemption, and ultimately finding belonging inside yourself is amazing.
I was honored to interview her and am so excited to see all of the the work she creates in the future.
Whether you’ve experienced emotional pain yourself or are seeking to understand the human experience, I invite you to open your heart to this conversation in Episode 557.
