Keynote Speaker: Arielle Estoria

Arielle Estoria (R-E-L EH-STORY-UH) is made of sass and good intentions, does not believe in surface level conversations, is a good coffee paired with even better conversation enthusiast and breakfast burritos and flowers are her love language.

Arielle is a Spoken Word Poet, gifted Writer and Author, captivating and authentic Emcee, Speaker and Actor. Shamelessly claiming that she is in the business of pulling on heartstrings, her motto, "Words not for the ears but for the soul" stems from her dedication to remind anyone who encounters her and her work that words are meant to be felt and experienced and not just heard. Which just means you may or may not cry by the end of your time with her. Arielle also has a very specific heart in empowering, encouraging and making space for audiences of women to feel at home in their own bodies. 

Arielle has shared her work through custom spoken word pieces, workshops and themed keynote talks with companies such as Google, Sofar Sounds, Lululemon, Dressember, Tedx, the SKIMS campaign by Kim Kardashian and more.

Arielle's first EP, a collection of music and poetry called "Symphony of a Lioness" and her single "Magic (In Your Bones)" are available on iTunes or Apple Music. She is Co-author of two collections of poetry: Vagabonds and Zealots (2014) and Write Bloody Spill Pretty (2017) which can both be found on
