Lady Nakia Wright, Founder
A Woman’s Voice (AWV) is designed to educate, empower, enlighten, and encourage women from all walks of life; that whatever place you find yourself in, AWV seeks to address the issues we hold close to our hearts but are afraid to say out loud.
So often we as women walk through life carrying silent pain, torment, and questions regarding life’s issues, giving the appearance of strength but broken inwardly…and so it is my heart’s desire to put an end to the unspoken sufferings and cries of those that believe they have no voice. There is so much strength and power in unity and sharing, the Bible says, “and they overcame by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…” Collectively we hold one another’s answers…Collectively we are stronger…Collectively we have the power to implement change!
Dr. Nakia Wright is a passionate woman after God’s heart who impressively balances her commitment to ministry, a flourishing family, and rewarding career. As a wife, mother, counselor, and motivational speaker, Dr. Wright is empowered to change every life that she encounters.
Dr. Wright is the wife of pastor and bestselling author; Bishop Donald Wright. They, along with their children reside in Bowie, MD.
I invite you to join me on this journey as we begin this walk with A Woman’s Voice!
