We had the good fortune of connecting with Joy Rowe and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Joy, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
Spiritual Palate impacts the community alongside a community outreach and networking event for creatives and dancers, called WeOnFyre Cypher. The WeOnFyre Cypher is an event I created to bring together creatives, to provide a safe place to grow, network, and express themselves. The WeOnFyre Cypher travels to different areas every month and provides an amazing platform and opportunity to speak with people who feel like outsiders in their own communities. Spiritual palate acts as a beacon for mental, physical, and spiritual health within these community outreach events.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What sets me apart from others is my perspective. I see things in a way that blurs the line between abstract and linear thinking. I am most proud of my drive, even when I doubted myself or my goals, I kept trying and moving forward, I never gave up. I got where I am today by networking and talking to like minded individuals and applying the information that resonated with me and my goals. I’ve learned that every opportunity that comes your way is a lesson, whether it be a good lesson or a bad one, you will learn from it. I want the world to know and understand that there are people out there that genuinely care and are willing to help a complete stranger without needing to have a camera around to prove it to people for clout. My brand is built around peace, love, and culture.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If my best friend was visiting i would take them to see the botanical gardens, the high museum, the ponce city rooftop, and the bamboo forest.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My fiancé Anthony “Fyrefli ” Gasaway deserves recognition. Without the help of Fyrefli, the WeOnFyre Cypher would not have grown as quickly as it has in the past year. He has worked hard to make sure that these events happen and are professionally designed. Fyrefli is the best partner I could have, in every sense of the word.
