My Name is Alita,
(Little Wing in Spanish), named for a specially placed birthmark in the shape of a little wing ... so the story goes. I was brought into this world as a result of a brief and wild love affair between two remarkably unique individuals.
I never knew them together but I did have the rare opportunity to be raised in two VERY different tribes.
My mother was a gypsy with no true destination in mind, while my father was pragmatic and a master of life-strategy.
When I was with my mother, we stayed in everything from ashrams, to remote villages, to tents on the beach. When I was with my father I went to private school, and tested the boundaries every chance I could.
I developed an insatiable hunger for adventure and couldn’t wait to see the world through my own lenses. I ended up living and working on almost every continent, I fell in and out of love, and I met amaaaaazing people who changed the course of my life in countless ways.
I also witnessed women and children suffering in unimaginable ways, which birthed my voice as an advocate for justice and conscious leadership.
I ultimately found myself to be a member of many tribes who shared their gifts, wisdom, and traditions that empowered me to become the woman I am today.
A woman that feels destined to introduce people to the world outside of their own. I believe Einstein's saying, "If you have the privilege to know, you have the duty to act."
Today, I am bridge-builder: providing people access to the ideas, the experiences and the people that can heal wounded hearts and inspire dreams. Their tools can only be discovered if you look outside the box, and trust that there is MORE waiting for you on the other side.
