Tonight on MODERN LOVE: we’re asking you to consider this: “You Are the Architect of Your Life!” And as the architect, you have the capacity to transform, alter and shape-shift the energy that flows within and without. Our guest is a wonderful practitioner of this philosophy. Zakiya Harris is a self-described “cultural architect”, artist and educator working at the intersections of entrepreneurship, 21st century education and creative transformation. She is the co-founder of nationally recognized projects Impact Hub and Grind for the Green.
Currently she is the Chief Education Officer for Hack the Hood, a technology program for low-income youth of color and winner of the 2014 Google Impact Challenge. When she is "off the clock" you can find her singing her heart out onstage, reading Octavia Butler or cooking with her 10 year old daughter. Zakiya’s music site is www.zakiyaharris.com.
