Use Your Gifts & Experiences to Serve Your Community with Akissi Hill

Akissi believes that “We don’t have to have all of the answers in front of us, but if you take that first step and a made up mind of saying ‘I don’t know what this journey will look like, but I’m not going to turn around and go back to where I just came from'”

Akissi’s WHY

I believe that I was meant to spread ambitious girl magic all around the world with women and girls, through teaching, speaking, coaching and advocating. The things that I do aren’t something that I can take for granted. I know what it feels like to know that you have a purpose, but also when it feels like you’re not good enough because of your circumstances. I’m able to empathize with those that I help, but I can also get them to see life outside the challenges, setbacks and obstacles. That they have everything that they need to continue the journey, but instead of going through the things, go through up, on and forward from them and into their purpose.
