ABOUT THE SHOW

Today’s episode with Elisa Jouannet is the first episode in a new series of student spotlights that will be coming out over the next few weeks.  A few months ago, I invited some of our students to come on the podcast, and share the exciting projects that they have been creating in the world. I’m forever in awe, and inspired by the passion, determination and generosity our students possess, so I wanted to share their brilliance with all of you. 

In today's episode, Elisa and I speak about her book, The Wind’s Daughter, released in early 2021. Elisa is a constant source of inspiration, and tenacity. Harnessing the power of her experiences travelling alone in Australia, Elisa penned a series of poems that over the next several years were woven into her first self-published book. Elisa has a “just do it” no-nonsense approach to moving forward with ones creative dreams that I think you will find at once, both incredibly relatable and deeply motivating.
