- When we lose momentum many of us feel stuck. Trapped. Feeling as if one cannot progress to their next destination in life. Many of us felt this way throughout this year.
- It is no secret that women, people of color, and other minority groups are highly underrepresented in our audio industry. So how do we change this? We need to understand intersectionality and practice intersectionality as a WAY OF THINKING and ACTION, and not just a word.
- Alyasia asked our SoundGirls Community that identify as LGBTQ+ to share experiences and insight. Have a safe Pride Month, filled with love and self-love
- A Commencement Speech for our 2020 Grads. Congratulations and Good Luck!
- Creativity is the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of artistic work. Many of us can consider ourselves creative beings. Working in our field is a creative job compared to others. Being creative helps you become a better problem solver, develops confidence, and relieves stress.
- Working in the Entertainment Industry can be stressful at times. During the past few weeks alone due to COVID-19, festivals, concerts, tours, and corporate gigs were canceled. This aftermath created a lot of fear and anxiety not only in our work industry but many others as well.
