We had the good fortune of connecting with Brittany Walker and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brittany, what do you want your legacy to be?
I’d like my legacy to be that I helped others love themselves more and to embrace their authentic selves by loving myself out loud and showing up as my authentic self everyday. I’d like to be remembered as someone who loves and supports black people especially black women unapologetically and a catalyst for pushing us forward in all the many facets of our lives.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Well, I’ve always loved arts and crafts my entire life. I started making a selling jewelry in middle school and it’s just grown from there. I think what sets me apart from other artist and creatives is my desire to continue to learn more crafts and try more creative things. Currently I’m learning photography which I practice on myself being a foot model and I really want to get into sculpting. My most notable work is my 3D flower afro pieces and my African print planters. Right now I’m the most excited about my self published children’s book “I Am Me” that can be found on Amazon. I became a self published author with the help of a black woman owned publishing company Divine Legacy Publishing. The easiest part of the entire process was actually writing the book. I told an acquaintance I wanted to write some children’s books and they asked what I was waiting on and I didn’t have an answer so I just started typing away on my phone and after 15 mins I had all the words to my book. It took almost 4 years from then to Juneteenth 2021 to actually have my book published. With becoming a mother, changing careers and overcoming postpartum depression finding the time, energy and the money to get everything done was the most difficult part of this self publishing process. Along the way I have learned to embrace the steps in the process and not pressuring myself to get everything done in one full sweep. I want the world to know that the more we can love and embrace ourselves for exactly who we are and aren’t the more we can love and embrace others the exact same way and make our society and world much better for future generations. My book and brand is about always showing up as your full authentic self, manifesting dreams and the life you desire and allowing others to do the same.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love little 5 points it’s a vibe. I haven’t been to The Garden Room yet but it’d definitely be on the list. Fish Tacos from 3 dollar cafe. Slutty Vegan or True food cafe for some tasty healthy food. The High Museum on Friday for a mixer. If it’s warm definitely a hike at Vickery Creek at Roswell Mill.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to recognize my late mother Phyllis Walker for instilling in me the confidence and courage that I can do and have anything I put my mind to. Shoutout to all the people and situations that told me no; that redirected me to elevate and try something different. And special shout-out to my tribe. The ones that continue to support me through the years and all the different versions of me that have evolved.
