Empowering women and creating a safe space for them to share their stories is one of the most important missions driving Michele in the work she does. “Sometimes artistic expression is more therapeutic than just words. It helps women vocalize their fears, needs, wants and desires, while nurturing a confidence to be more articulate and assertive in their own lives.” In an effort to manifest a platform to nurture that influence, Michele founded “Beats and Baddies” in 2018, which is a movement powered through music, poetry and other creative expressions. Life is pretty funny and it’s crazy how things have a way of coming full circle. Just 6 months ago, Michele was referencing her radio influences, in an article with the All Access’ column, “Women to Watch” where she referenced both Madd Hatta and Shelly Wade… and now here she is working with both on the all new Vibe powered by KTSU 90.9 FM.
